Dimensity 720 gives the SD chipset a tough competition and for less pricey phones the Dimensity chipset is much better

jivraj singj, I guess you should wait for V5 because of new dimensity processor 7nm, I was also thinking of buying realme 7 but now I will go with V5 or X7 if they landed below 20K. I guess both of them will get launched by 1st week of feb.
