Speaking of the specifications of the Realme X50 Pro 5G, the device will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 5G platform, which will be paired with up to 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of onboard storage. It is unclear as to whether or not there will be scope for storage expansion. As far as the OS is concerned, the Realme X50 Pro 5G will run on the latest Android 10 OS out of the box with the company’s in-house Realme UI baked on top of it.
For optics, the Realme X50 Pro 5G will utilize a quad rear camera setup, with a 64MP primary sensor and a dual punch-hole selfie snapper, the resolutions of which, are unknown as of now. Speaking of the display, the Realme X50 Pro 5G will flaunt an AMOLED display, making us believe that it could sport an in-display fingerprint scanner. Just in case you are unaware, the vanilla Realme X50 5G smartphone had a side-mounted fingerprint scanner because of the IPS LCD display it came with. Furthermore, the Realme X50 Pro is confirmed to feature up to 65W of SuperDart charging. Moving on to the display of the device, the Realme X50 Pro 5G is confirmed to feature a dual punch-hole display with Full HD+ resolution.
For now, this is all we know about the Realme X50 Pro 5G, but we are sure to receive more intel on the same in the coming days as the launch date approaches.
