The Realme X50 Pro 5G was officially launched today in India. At the same time, Realme has also launched an info page on the European version of its website. The Realme X50 Pro 5G is the successor to the Realme X2 Pro and accordingly represents the new flagship of the former Oppo subsidiary. Compared to the Mi 10 from Xiaomi, you still try to offer a cheaper overall package.
The design was only slightly revised. So you still rely on a double-glass structure with a metal frame and a camera module positioned on the side. The punch-hole front camera is new. With the Realme X50 Pro 5G you can find this in the top left of the display. The edges of the display are as usual narrow. In terms of colors, customers can choose between a green and a red model. The Realme X50 Pro 5G is protected on both sides with Gorilla Glass 5.
For the display, the Realme X50 Pro 5G uses the proven AMOLED technology with a 90Hz refresh rate. The touchscreen has a sampling frequency of 180Hz and should ensure first-class gaming performance and precision. The screen size is 6.44 inches – pleasantly little for today’s time. The resolution is 2400 x 1080 pixels and the display supports HDR10 + with a peak brightness of 1000 nits. In addition, the screen covers 100% of the DCI-P3 color space.
A top SoC from Qualcomm is responsible for the lighting. The Snapdragon 865 again offers a decent performance boost and is cooled by the “Vapor Chamber”. He is supported by up to 12GB RAM and 256GB storage. The user has to do without a micro SD slot. The Realme X50 Pro 5G is already based on LPDDR5 RAM with quad channel connection and uses fast UFS 3.0 memory with dual lane connection. A 4,200mAh battery is responsible for the power supply, which is charged with “SuperDart Charge” with up to 65 watts of power. The corresponding power supply is included in the scope of delivery.
The Realme X50 Pro 5G offers a fingerprint sensor integrated in the screen and can also be unlocked via Face Unlock. Stereo speakers including Dolby Atmos are available for media enjoyment. This time, however, the 3.5mm connection was deleted. A corresponding Type-C adapter is also not included in the scope of delivery. In the wireless sector, the Realme X50 Pro 5G offers support for the most important LTE bands apart from band 28 and of course 5G. There is also WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.1 and NFC. Realme UI based on Android 10 is used as the operating system.
The main camera of the Realme X50 Pro 5G still uses a 64MP Samsung GW1 sensor, which in this case is equipped with an f/1.8 aperture. There is also a 12MP f/2.5 camera for zoom shots, an 8MP f/2.3 camera for ultra-wide-angle and macro shots and a 2MP f/2.4 black / white camera for portrait shots. There is a 32MP f/2.5 Sony IMX616 camera for selfies and an additional 8MP f/2.2 camera for 108 ° wide-angle photos. The main camera can record 4k videos at 30fps and Full HD videos at 60fps. The front camera offers “Slomo Selfies” with 120fps.
As I said, the price is uphill, which is primarily due to the Snapdragon 865, which is significantly more expensive than its predecessors. Realme gives prices for Europe at €599 for 8GB + 128GB, €669 for 8GB + 256GB and €749 for 12GB + 256GB. 6GB RAM is also listed as an option on the website, but no price has yet been announced. In Europe, the Realme X50 Pro 5G will be released in April.
