In terms of specifications, Realme X50 Pro 5G will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC. It will be the first smartphone with the mobile platform in India.

The company has also confirmed hexa camera setup. There are four cameras on the back and two at the front. The front cameras will be placed in a pill-shaped cutout similar to that of Poco X2 and Galaxy S10+. However, it seems to be placed on the left hand corner.
