Realme recently launched its latest X50 smartphone in China. It is unknown as to when the device will be launched in India. In a new episode of #AskMadhav on YouTube, Realme India’s CEO Madhav Sheth revealed that something “bigger and better” than the Realme X50 would come to India. He hinted that the Realme X50 5G phone will not launch in India, but instead “something better is in store.”
This could be the Realme X50 Pro smartphone. Sheth said that users should “stay tuned for Realme at MWC” as the brand has planned something better for India. If rumors are to be believed, the company will launch the Pro version of the Realme X50 at MWC 2020. In February, Realme is expected to announce a Snapdragon 865-powered 5G device, which will likely be the Realme X50 Pro, 91Mobiles reported.
