Realme X50 Pro, which is also known as India's First 5G smartphone, is now official in the country at a starting price of Rs 37,999. While we may not see telecom operators launching 5G network in India anytime in the next 18 months, 5G smartphones have started coming in with the Realme X50 Pro 5G being the first one and it will be followed by iQOO 3 5G tomorrow. Keeping the 5G hype aside, the Realme X50 Pro is a great smartphone, at least on specs.

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. What's more interesting is the device will go on sale starting today at 6 PM via Flipkart and Realme.com.
