Realme X50 Pro 5G with Snapdragon 865 and Quad Rear Cameras Launched
The first 5G phone in India is here
After a series of leaks and rumors suggesting the specifications for the Realme X50 Pro surfaced online for over a week, leaving almost nothing to the imagination, Realme has today officially taken wraps off of its latest flagship, the Realme X50 Pro. With its launch, the company can now finally tout its device as the “first 5G smartphone in India”, beating the iQOO 3, by a day. Although, as of now, India is in no way ready for the 5G rally, it surely seems like the hot lure talk in the market, after cameras, expected to capitalize on the human ostentation. While most of the specifications and features were already out before the launch, we now have a more detailed understanding of the device.
Realme X50 Pro: Design and Display
In terms of design, the Realme X50 Pro features an all-glass design with a low-key and less saturated colorway. Realme says the low-saturation color scheme helps the device retain its high-end texture look, and gives it a more appealing look. The X50 Pro comes in two color options: Moss Green and Rust Red, which the company suggests to have been inspired by an unknown matter in outer space.
Towards the front, the phone flaunts a 6.44-inch Super AMOLED display with an in-display fingerprint scanner and dual in-display front-facing cameras. It uses Samsung’s AMOLED panel that offers a 90Hz refresh rate with a 180Hz sampling rate and comes with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5 protection on top. The display provides a 20:9 aspect ratio with a 92% screen-to-body ratio along with an FHD+ resolution and support for HDR10+ and 100% DCI-P3 color gamut.
Realme X50 Pro: Performance
Talking about performance, the Realme X50 Pro is powered by the Snapdragon 865 processor with Adreno 650 GPU, which is the latest offering from Qualcomm. The SoC comes with the X55 modem that promises to offer support for sub-6GHz and mmWave in both TDD (Time Division Duplex) and FDD (Frequency Division Duplex) frequency and is also compatible with NSA (Non-Stand Alone) and SA (Stand Alone) modes. Besides, the handset comes equipped with 6GB / 8GB /12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128GB / 256GB of UFS 3.0 storage, for faster performance.
It includes a 4200mAh battery to fuel up the internals with support for 65W SuperDart charging, which promises to fully charge the device within 35 minutes. Additionally, it also includes support for 18W QC/PD and 30W VOOC 4.0 Fast Charge, to offer more versatility. What’s even interesting with the X50 Pro is that the company has adopted the GaN technology for its charger, which is the latest battery-tech that is faster and more efficient at transferring charge.
Among other things, the device supports Smart 5G (allows easy switching between 5G and 4G), Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, for connectivity, and also comes with USB Type-C and an in-display fingerprint scanner for authentication. It includes dual super linear dual speakers with support for Dolby Atmos and Hi-Res sound for better audio and features a tactile linear motor to provides better tactile feedback that adds to the experience and offers an immersive gaming experience. Furthermore, the handset also features a five-dimensional vapor cooling system, which allows for better heat dissipation to prevent any throttling in performance.
On the software front, the Realme X50 Pro runs on the company’s in-house realmeUI (based on Android 10), out of the box. The realme UI claims to offer a bunch of new usability features along with a series of performance optimization features to offer a better user experience.
