Realme X7 Max and Realme TV 4K 43-inch were expected to be launched at the event.
The Realme X7 Max is likely to have a 6.43-inch Super AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. Its triple rear camera setup comprises a 64-megapixel Sony IMX682 primary sensor. It should have a 4,500mAh battery.
Since the current second wave of COVID-19 comes sweeping across India, Realme has decided to delay its upcoming launches. A launch event was to be held on May 4 to unveil the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC, the company’s flagship smartphone.
It was expected to be called Realme X7 Max, as a rebranded version of the Realme GT Neo launched earlier in China. Realme was also planning to launch a new Realme TV, presumably the Realme TV 4K model 43-inch. According to a new tweet from the CEO of Realme India Madhav Sheth, the company is postponing launches and anniversary celebrations as India faces unprecedented challenges.
The tweet reads, “Realme has delayed the launch of the upcoming smartphone and AIoT products until after the company’s anniversary.” Let’s work together to make the company stronger as times get tough. Additionally, a small note is attached, urging all citizens of India to follow the relevant COVID-19 safety protocols. “Request you focus on yourselves and your families. It is time for us to stick together and support one another as one community,” the note reads.
Realme’s upcoming May 4 launch event remains cancelled, but it has not announced a new date yet. As a result, the company is likely to wait for lockdown restrictions to lift before announcing a new launch date. As a consequence, Realme’s annual anniversary celebrations in May will be cancelled. The company usually conducts a massive sale with attractive discounts and offers during this time period.
