The best part is that the Realme X50 Pro has a support of the 5G network at a price of half of what flagships cost.

 X50 Pro Hardware –

Realme has upped their game in this department by providing the best hardware at a fraction of the price of a flagship. Under the hood of this beast sits a Snapdragon 865 chipset with Adreno 650 GPU. This is the same chipset on offer with the very expensive Galaxy S20. The device also comes with LPDDR 5 Quad-channel RAM with 6/8/12 GB on offer according to the price. The phone also has the latest ROM that is UFS 3.0 + with turbo write with 128/256 GB on offer according to the price.

The phone has a quad lens camera and offers many modes for mobile photographers.

The primary lens is a 64 MP lens with an aperture of f/1.8.  It’s lens is primarily for wide-angle photography. The lens is 26mm (wide), 1/1.72″, 0.8µm, PDAF.

Now, in all honesty, I would say kudos to RealMe. This is a mid-range phone with a great camera at such a cheap price.

Battery –

The device has a 4200 mAh massive battery which also comes with fast charging support. Realme phones are known for their fast charging capabilities and this one is no exception. The battery supports fast charging of 65W and can go from 0 to 100% in 35 min which is just insane! Realme calls this SuperDart Flash Charge.

Miscellaneous –

The device comes with all the basic sensors and also supports NFC. The device also has stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos support but no 3.5 mm jack which in today’s market is not a very big deal.  As of now, the device is available in 2 colors. Moss Green and Rust Red but we can expect some special editions very soon. The device is available for pre-order at a cost of $542 – $642.

Overall Verdict –

I would say that according to the hardware and the benchmark scores alone, I am very impressed by this device. The device also offers a great camera and the Dolby Atmos support is icing on the cake. Although 5G will still take a while to come, this phone is future proof and will last you long. For me, the main selling factor of this phone is the Snapdragon chipset and the battery with the 65W fast charging support.

I would totally buy this phone and would also recommend you to if you want a beast of a phone for half the price of a flagship.
