Realme Narzo 50 is now official in the Indian market, and this is a successor to the Narzo 30 of last year. It launched at a starting price of ₹12,999, and for this price, you get the MediaTek Helio G96 chip, a 50MP primary camera, a 5,000mAh battery with 33W charging, and a 120Hz display. In terms of design and specifications, this phone is quite similar to the Realme 8i. There are some slight differences between the two phones, and we will talk about all of those in this article.

First, speaking of the design, the Narzo 50 has, what Realme calls, a “Kevlar Speed Texture Design.” The phone is made of polycarbonate, and the back has a carbon fiber-like finish. The camera module has a triple camera setup, and the design of it is the same as for Realme 8 and 8i last year. There is a Type-C port on the bottom with a 3.5mm headphone jack and the speaker grill. The phone does not have stereo speakers, so, this bottom-firing speaker is the only speaker on this device. The fingerprint scanner is placed on the side, and on the front, there is a display with a hole punch in the corner.

Speaking of the main highlights of this phone, it has the MediaTek Helio G96 SOC. So, that’s an upgrade over the Helio G95 of the Realme Narzo 30 of last year. This chip is paired with 4GB or 6GB LPDDR4X RAM and 64GB or 128GB UFS 2.1 storage. The camera setup on the back includes a primary 50MP sensor with an f/1.8 aperture lens, a 2MP macro camera, and a 2MP B&W sensor. So, there is no ultrawide camera on this phone. There is a 16MP selfie camera.

There is a 6.6-inch 120Hz LCD on the front with an FHD+ resolution and 180Hz touch-sampling rate. The battery size is 5,000mAh, and Narzo 50 also supports 33W fast charging. Finally, Android 11 runs out of the box, with Realme UI 3.0 running on top.

Speaking of the similarities between Realme Narzo 50 & Realme 8i, there is the same chip, the same battery size, the same display, and the same camera setup. The only thing that is better in Narzo 50 is the faster-charging speed of 33W compared to 18W in the case of Realme 8i.

In terms of pricing, the Narzo 50 comes with two variants. The 4GB + 64GB variant is priced at ₹12,999, whereas the 6GB + 128GB variant at ₹15,499. It is worth mentioning that Realme says the starting price of ₹12,999 is an introductory price, so it is going to increase after initial sales. The first sale takes place on the 3rd of March, and you can buy the phone via Amazon, Realme India’s website, and stores near you.
