Realme has made up our minds to put back its upcoming launches because of the current second wave of COVID-19 sweeping across India. The company was once scheduled to host a launch event on May 4 to unveil a new flagship phone powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC. This was once in large part anticipated to be called Realme X7 Max, a rebranded mannequin of the Realme GT Neo that was once launched in China earlier. Realme was once also having a look to launch a new Realme TV, presumably the Realme TV 4K 43-inch mannequin at the launch event.
In a fresh tweet, Realme India CEO Madhav Sheth has confirmed that the company is postponing upcoming launches and anniversary celebrations as India battles unprecedented challenges. The tweet reads, “After careful consideration, Realme has made up our minds to put back the upcoming smartphone and AIoT products’ launch at the side of anniversary celebrations. In these difficult times, let’s focus on contributing as much as conceivable. Stay home, Stay strong! We will be able to be back soon.”

Sheth also attached a small note that urges all citizens of India to follow applicable COVID-19 safety protocols. “Request you all to concentrate on your families and yourselves. It’s time for us to stick together and toughen each and every other as one community,” the note reads.
While the upcoming May 4 launch event stands cancelled, Realme has not offered any details on when the event will be held now. The company is likely to wait for lockdown restrictions to subside before announcing a new launch date. In any event, Realme’s anniversary celebrations that are held in May once a year, stand totally cancelled. The company normally conducts a sale with appealing offers and discounts right through this period of time.
Realme X7 Max, whenever it launches, is tipped to feature a 6.43-inch Super AMOLED full-HD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate. Its triple rear camera setup may include a 64-megapixel Sony IMX682 primary sensor. The phone is likely to pack a 4,500mAh battery.
