The Realme X50 Pro 5G is the company’s most premium (and most expensive) phone yet. One of the reasons for this is the inclusion of the latest and most powerful Snapdragon 865 mobile chipset in the phone. You can also see this phone as the mighty Realme X2 Pro. The X50 Pro is packed with some great features compared to the X2 Pro. It includes features like 5G support, a bigger battery, faster charging, dual front-facing cameras, and new software. . We haven’t spent enough time with the phone, but we share with you our initial thoughts on the Realme X50 Pro.
Realme has not made many changes to the design of the X50 Pro. The company has introduced the X50 Pro 5G with some minor improvements. The most noticeable change is the phone’s built-in hole-punch screen, which looks as premium as other hole-punch screen phones available in the market today. It is a double perforation screen, similar to the one we saw on the Samsung Galaxy S10+. Although it is given in the upper left corner of the punch screen. We found that the hole punch doesn’t distract us while watching videos or playing games. The screen is also curved at the edges.
The phone is very well built and feels sturdy. Gorilla Glass 5 protection has been provided on the front and back. The realme X50 Pro’s 6.44-inch AMOLED panel is brilliant, and the Full HD+ resolution makes everything look sharp. Like the Realme X2 Pro, it also supports a 90Hz refresh rate.
Realme X50 Pro 5G has been launched by the company in two color options including Moss Green and Rust Red. Both of these shades are not very bright. Realme says that similar colors are popular among young people now. The matte finish is visible on the back of the phone. We really liked the finish and the good thing is that it doesn’t leave marks easily. Although the back of the phone is very slippery.
The Realme X50 Pro 5G does not have a headphone jack or microSD card slot. Two Nano-SIM cards can be used in this. You get stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos audio and the usual power and volume buttons. The camera bump on the back of the phone also doesn’t come with the bump we’ve seen on Realme phones before, but that’s because the overall thickness of the phone has been increased. The total thickness of the realme X50 Pro is 8.9mm which feels quite chunky in the hand and it also weighs 205 grams which is certainly heavy.
One of the highlights of the phone is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor. We are going to see this processor in many flagship Android phones this year. The main reason for this is that the chipset comes with support for 5G networks. Although users in India cannot use this feature at the moment as 5G connectivity is not available in the country at the moment, it definitely makes this phone a good option for the future. Also, if you go to countries with a 5G network, you will have a great opportunity to take advantage of high-speed data there.
The top model of the Realme X50 Pro 5G packs 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256 GB of UFS 3.0 storage, which we are testing. Talking about the pricing of all the variants, the 6 GB RAM and 128 GB storage variant of the phone is available for Rs 37,999, the 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage variant for Rs 39,999 and the 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB for Rs 44,999.
Realme says that it also used a vapor cooling system in the X50 Pro 5G to keep the processor cool. So far we have not had any kind of heating problem on this phone. Although we haven’t actually fully tested this phone, we’ll be able to tell you about it in our review.
In our limited use, we didn’t encounter any issues with the phone’s interface or during multitasking. You get Realme UI on the phone, which is based on Android 10. We have seen this UI recently on the Realme C3 as well. The X50 Pro 5G also comes with 65W ultra-fast charging, which is called Realme SuperDart Flash Charge. We have yet to measure the charging speed, but Realme claims that the phone’s battery fully charges in just 35 minutes.
The rear camera setup of the phone largely matches that of the Realme X2 Pro. It has a 64-megapixel main camera sensor. Additionally, the setup includes a 12-megapixel telephoto camera, an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera that doubles as a macro camera, and a 2-megapixel monochrome depth sensor. At the front, there’s also a 32-megapixel main camera along with an 8-megapixel wide-angle camera that covers a 105-degree field of view. We have used the camera very little so far, but after using it for a limited time, our expectations of the camera have risen.
During the limited time of use, Realme X50 Pro 5G performed exactly as the phone should according to the specifications. Before the launch, some rumors claimed that the phone would launch for around Rs 50,000 but Realme surprised everyone by launching it for just Rs 37,999. However, despite being Realme’s most expensive model to date, the phone still misses out on some premium features like wireless charging or water resistance.
We will keep testing Realme X50 Pro in a better way and give you full information about its performance, battery life, display, usability, etc. It will also be interesting to see how this phone stacks up against the iQoo 3, another premium flagship phone with the Snapdragon 865 processor.<!–
