The design of the phone closely resembles the recently launched Realme X2. However, the Realme X50 5G will be the company’s first phone to use a punch-hole front camera setup on the screen. This falls in line with the Realme X series bringing something new to the rand’s line up with every device. We saw that the Realme X brings a pop-up camera. Meanwhile, the Realme XT brought a 64-megapixel rear camera. Further, the Realme X2 Pro was the company’s first premium flagship phone with 50W fast charging.
Realme X50 5G to use Snapdragon 765G
The Realme X50 5G will feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chipset. The mid-range Snapdragon 765G is one of the most anticipated SoCs with its ability to bring 5G to the masses. The chipset can also combine 5G and WiFi connections to increase both, connection speed and stability. That could be really handy in the early 5G days (or months) when the connection wouldn’t exactly be flawless.
Realme is also expected to announce a Realme X50 Lite at the same launch event. It is still unknown what aspect of the phone will be toned down in the ‘Lite’ variant. However, the most likely scenario is the X50 Lite will only be a 4G phone, and not support 5G.
