Realme just launched the X50 Pro, the company’s flagship 5G smartphone for the global markets as well as India. It’s laudable that Realme has launched a phone that supports 5G and IQOO is also launching one soon. The Realme X50 Pro 5G is a 5G-enabled smartphone that supports both modes NSA and SA. The network is supported by the Qualcomm X55 modem that works in synergy with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 to deliver high cellular speeds when available. This device has everything, even remarkably good for INR 37,999 (~ NPR 60,800 approx.).
Let’s took a closer look at how the Realme X50 Pro 5G performs and stands out.
Realme X50 Pro 5G: Design & Aesthetics
Realme hasn’t gone too crazy with design and the X50 Pro 5G has a familiar look with some subtle improvements. The most noticeable is the hole-punch display. There’s Gorilla Glass 5 on the front and back of the smartphone. The phone features an in-display fingerprint scanner from Goodix that can unlock the phone in 0.27 seconds.
The Realme X50 Pro 5G doesn’t have a headphone socket or a slot for a microSD card. You get stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos audio, and the usual power and volume buttons. The camera bump on the back of the phone is also slimmer compared to what we’ve seen before on Realme phones. Measuring 8.9mm in thickness, the X50 Pro 5G feels chunky in the hand and is fairly heavy too at 205g.
Realme X50 Pro 5G: Display
The Realme X50 Pro 5G packs a 6.44-inch (2400 x 1080 pixels) 20:9 Super AMOLED display from Samsung with a 90Hz refresh rate and 180Hz sampling rate. I have used 90Hz displays before and this one is not much different. The screen also supports hardware-level DC dimming. It says the phone has a 92% screen-to-body ratio, thanks to minimal bezels. It has a peak brightness of up to 1000, supports HDR10+ and 100% DCI-P3 and 105% NTSC color gamut, so the outdoor screen visibility is good. The screen is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
Realme X50 Pro 5G: Performance
Now, let’s talk about performance. The smartphone with Snapdragon 865 is smooth. I played Call of Duty Mobile for a short while on the Realme X50 Pro 5G and found the experience on par with other flagship phones. The interface is also smooth and I did not face any issues in my initial impression.
Realme X50 Pro 5G: Software and UI
The Realme X50 Pro 5G is also the second phone to run Realme UI (the first one was the Realme C3). Realme UI is very similar to the ColorOS 7 but has its own flair. The icons look decent but you can change them as per preference. Also, there is the dark mode which you can turned on as per your convenience.
Realme X50 Pro 5G: Cameras
The selection of rear cameras is similar to what we saw on the Realme X2 Pro. There’s a primary 64-megapixel camera; a 12-megapixel telephoto camera; an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera that also works as a macro camera; and a 2-megapixel, monochrome depth sensor. The front cameras are interesting, as along with a 32-megapixel selfie camera, there’s an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera with a 105-degree field of view.
Realme X50 Pro 5G: Battery
The Realme X50 Pro 5G can lasts for 1.5 days easily on a single charge, which is very impressive. Realme claims its new 65W SuperDart Charge technology can fill battery fully within 30 minutes. We are still to test the claim but we are convinced, especially after having seen the 50W fast charging technology on the Realme X2 Pro.
Realme X50 Pro 5G Price and Availability
Realme took the charge to introduce 5G in India and it has delivered in a smartphone that will pave the way for upcoming 5G smartphones. Realme X50 Pro 5G, however, could be worth your consideration, especially for the starting price of INR 37,999. I mean, it has got everything that a power user needs a Snapdragon 865 processor, a 90Hz display, quad cameras at the back, two on the front, and a fairly impressive outlook.
