Yesterday we saw a few leaks concerning Realme's upcoming MagDart wireless charging technology, and today marks the official launch, not that Realme has provided a release date or prices just yet. Still, today's announcement is all about Realme showing off its upcoming magnetic wireless charging solutions for Android. As a matter of fact, the company has revealed an entire wireless charging ecosystem, which is why we have a slew of products to reveal below, including the 50W SuperDart wired charger that can fully recharge Realme's concept Flash phone's 4500mAh battery in less than an hour.
Look, MagSafe is some cool stuff. A collection of interchangeable accessories that instantly clamps on with magnets, including wireless charging? Hell yeah, I'm not made of stone. It's not enough to actually make me switch to an iPhone (he said, dodging disapproving glances from his Pixel 5), but I can't deny that it's a fantastic idea. Fantastic enough that it's surprising it took this long for someone to brazenly rip it off.
Qualcomm has been the chipmaker of choice for most mobile gamers with its flagship Snapdragon chipsets. However, MediaTek isn't standing on the sidelines this year, bringing heat to the market with its updated Dimensity chipsets. The Dimensity 1200 is one of its most powerful offerings, and the Realme X7 Max is the first phone outside China to feature it.
With benchmark scores that can rival the Snapdragon 870, does the Dimensity 1200, inside the X7 Max have what it takes to win hearts and minds? Spoiler: yes, it's got plenty of power to satiate your gaming needs.
When you see that a phone has a MediaTek processor, you tend to assume that it's going to be a budget model. You might want to check that assumption, starting now: the Realme X7 Max 5G is a flagship design from top to bottom, and it's packing MediaTek silicon. In fact, it's the first phone to use the company's flagship Dimensity 1200 chip outside of the Chinese domestic market.
For the last few years, the Android Beta Program has been one of the biggest highlights of Google I/O, which continues to be the case this year.

After accidentally teasing a few upcoming phones before removing them again earlier this year, Google has published a proper update to its ARCore support page, revealing that the augmented reality library is now supported by 24 more devices. This time around, all of them have already been announced.
We’ve all seen examples of insane 5G download speeds, and maybe that makes you want 5G in your next phone, but the reality on the ground is different. As it currently stands, 5G is far from ubiquitous — it doesn't even exist in markets like India — and the compromises and costs associated with it are substantial. It's still fair to want 5G from a flagship phone if you plan to use it for a few years, but the equation changes when we talk about the budget segment where the compromises caused by 5G are more noticeable. The Realme 8 5G is the perfect example of that.
Realme is one of the fastest-growing smartphone companies in the world, and there's more to its success than just attractively-priced hardware. The other side of the coin is software, and Realme phones have a lot to offer in this department too, with plenty of useful features and impressive customization options.
At a livestreamed event today, Realme unveiled a set of new products, including its latest affordable smartphone. The Realme 8 Pro boasts Samsung's new 108MP camera sensor for high-resolution photos, while other innovative features such as tilt-shift time-lapse video are also on board. At the same time, Realme announced the launch of two new wearable accessories in European markets: the Watch S Pro and Buds Air 2.
