realme announces X50 5G, starts from, Y2499

Today in China, realme had revealed their first smartphone with 5G availability, the realme X50 5G. 

The X50 packs some an interesting spec sheet, starting with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC. The model has 3 diverse variants with interesting combos, starting from 6GB RAM with 256 memory, 8GB RAM with 128GB memory and finally a high end 12GB + 256 GB combo. A Master Edition is available as well, carrying the same storage and RAM as their highest end variant. 

The X50 5G sports a 6.57-inch FHD+ display with a 120Hz refresh rate covered with Gorilla Glass 5. All this is powered by a 4200mAh battery pack that comes with the company’s 30W VOOC fast charging technology. 

As for shooters the X50 5G features a quad sensor setup that’s predictably on par with most flagship killers in its class : 

  • 64MP main sensor
  • 12MP telephoto sensor
  • 8MP ultra-wide angle sensor
  • 2MP macro sensor

There are 2 front facing cameras, which consist of a 16MP main shooter with an additional 6MP wide angle. 

There are 2 major things that you need to know about the X50 5G: 

  • It’s coming with a new realme UI out of the box
  • The 5G modem will be part of the SoC and not on an additional module (which is great)

How Much Will it be? 

  • 8GB + 128GB – Y2,499 (RM 1473)
  • 6GB + 256GB – Y2,699 (RM 1591)
  • 12GB + 256GB – Y2,999 (RM 1768)
  • 12GB + 256GB (Master Edition) – Y3,099 (RM 1827)

It comes in 3 flavors, namely Glacier Silver, Polar Blue, and the Master Edition. I’m sure the Master Edition will look really good because it’s designed by Naoto Fukusawa, the same person who designed the Red Brick realme X2 Pro.

We’re not quite sure when the X50 5G will reach Malaysian shores but i’m sure it wouldn’t take long after its Global release. Pre-orders in China start from today till 14th January.
