TWRP Recovery is a custom recovery for Android phones. And undoubtedly it is the best custom recovery available right now. Not many Realme phones generally get the official TWRP Recovery. Only a few popular Realme phones managed to get the TWRP and Realme 7 is the latest among these Realme phones.
Realme 7 was released back in September 2020. And as we mentioned earlier Realme devices are not custom development friendly, and as of now, Realme hasn’t shared an official unlock apk for Realme 7. It means you cannot officially unlock the bootloader of Realme 7 even after half a year of its release. But it is possible with some modded applications.
You must be wondering why you need to use a custom recovery if the phone already comes with stock recovery. Well, it depends on what type of user you are, like if you try different custom ROMs and Mods, then it is not possible with the stock recovery. Stock Recovery comes with only a few basic options like install update via adb, format device, reboot to bootloader, etc. But TWRP comes with advanced features such as install zip/image files, partition, format/wipe data, and many other advanced features.
