Other key features of the handset include 90Hz screen, 32MP dual punch-hole selfie cameras, 64MP quad-camera setup on the back, up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 4200mAh battery with 65W SuperDart charging technology.

Realme X50 Pro: Specifications and Features

Similar to other flagship smartphones, the Realme X50 Pro also comes with glass back, but it lacks IP resistance and wireless charging. On the front of the phone, we get to see a large 6.44-inch Full HD+ Super AMOLED screen with an AMOLED screen and dual punch-hole cutout located on the left top. This cutout houses a 32MP primary camera and an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens. The display has 90Hz refresh rate, 20:9 aspect ratio and 92% screen-to-body ratio.

At the heart of the phone is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset, paired with up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.0 internal storage. Cameras on the Realme X50 Pro include a 64MP Samsung ISOCELL GW1 sensor on the back, 12MP telephoto sensor, 8MP ultra-wide-angle sensor and a 2MP portrait sensor. Realme says the phone offers 20X zoom functionality as well.

Connectivity options on the Realme X50 Pro include Dual-Mode 5G, Dual 4G, VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS and a USB Type-C port. The phone has Snapdragon X55 modem which allows users to switch between 5G and 4G networks easily. Out of the box, the handset runs Realme UI 1.0 based on Android 10 and ColorOS.

Lastly, Realme has added a 4200mAh battery that can be charged in just 35 minutes using the company’s 65W SuperDart charging technology. Notably, it is the fastest charging flagship smartphone in the market right now beating its predecessor- the Realme X2 Pro.

Realme X50 Pro: Pricing and Availability in India

The Realme X50 Pro comes in three variants- 6GB+128GB, 8GB+128GB and 12GB+256GB, priced at Rs 37,999, Rs 39,999 and Rs 44,999. The first sale of the device will take place on February 24, 2020, at 6 PM via Flipkart and Realme.com.

Very little thought through and pathetic engineering handsets launched by this company even beating its rival xioami in no. of launches 7 against 2 of xioami last yr. half baked software and pathetic camera even by one plus standards. They are worth only under 20k budget. All this will not fly at 38 k price point like Samsung can’t create something better under 30k. So each one brand should understand what it is worth off

There is always good GCam port available. Don’t go on reports of DXOMark of One Plus 7 Pro and One Plus 7T Pro.

OnePlus 7T with price cut around 30K would be a good buy ….

Rust red color looks good on Realme x50 Pro

Let’s see what iQoo has to offer especially pricing of non 5G variant with Snapdragon 865

SACHIN

Krrish

Every discount manufacturers in the market is doing it and that’s what is keeping the prices down from full flagships

We as users only come to know about these things when we have the product paid in full.

No youtuber (I wonder even they know what is missing from full flagship) or blog gives full picture
