A few days back Realme announced that it would be launching its next flagship, the Realme X50 Pro, on February 24th in Madrid. Now Realme has surprised everyone by announcing the launch date for the Indian market. Interestingly, the phone is launching in India on February 24th, i.e., on the same day when it would be launched globally in Madrid.
This announcement also means that the upcoming iQOO 3 won’t be India’s first Snapdragon 865-powered phone since the X50 Pro launch is set to happen just a day before that of iQOO 3. While the teaser says “India’s first 5G smartphone”, there is no 5G network currently in India.
Launching a 5G phone in India when there is no 5G network isn’t Realme’s fault since Snapdragon 865 doesn’t come with an integrated modem & the only modem it supports is the X55 5G Modem. So, companies can take advantage of “5G” to advertise their devices.
As we know already, Realme X50 Pro 5G comes with a 90Hz Super AMOLED Full-HD+ display with dual Punch-hole design, Snapdragon 865 SOC, LPDDR5 RAM, UFS 3.0 storage & a crazy 65W SuperDart Charging, beating its own record of 50W charging on the Realme X2 Pro that is the fastest charging device currently in India.
