Realme has landed strongly in Europe only a few months ago, although their launches and successes have been known in Asia since 2018. We have seen how the company has broken the market with a very aggressive pricing policy, although we miss a 5G terminal in its portfolio. Now it has been confirmed that this mobile is about to arrive and I could do it this year, as realme X50.
We know that realme has a clear strategy. To become known in Europe with a very aggressive pricing policy, offering high-end terminals that can face and overthrow Xiaomi. Behind realme is Oppo, a titan accompanied by other firms such as OnePlus or Vivo.
The realme X2 Pro is the very powerful terminal, at the height of the most powerful mobile can range of 2019. However, realme has not yet taken the step in 5G technology, and it seems that would not happen until 2020. Now, the company’s Marketing Director, Xu Qi Chase, has revealed that the device is on its way and that it will be called realme X50. As indicated, the mobile will be compatible with dual 5G, ie with autonomous 5G networks (SA) and non-autonomous (NSA). As revealed by the discreet image that has been shared on the China Weibo social network, this new smartphone will feature a double front camera, housed in a pill-shaped hole, very Galaxy S10+ style or what we will soon see with the new Honor V30.
One of the big questions now is which processor will be chosen to support this new realme X50. Last September, Realme stated that they would launch a 5G terminal with Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 7 series, which is compatible with this technology. This new realme X50 with 5G could be introduced in the coming weeks, i.e. before the end of the year.
When will it arrive?
Considering that its most direct competitor, Xiaomi, has already joined the 5G technology, and that other brands such as Honor will do so imminently with the Honor V30, it is logical to think that Realme does not want to be too far behind. The question now is whether this realme X50 will be the first real democratization of a 5G mobile phone, the prices of which have not been available to the general public this year.
