Realme has grown in leaps and bounds after its introduction to the smartphone market.The Realme X50 Pro 5G is India’s first launched 5G enabled smartphone.Besides the above I intend to use another adjective before this device the Budget Flagship.
WHY THE BUDGET FLAGSHIP
What are flagships? Flagships are the highest priced,highest specs sheet enforced,the best Camera setup enabled and the most premium looking smartphone of any company.Prices of flagships have reached almost Rs.1,20,000 .Obviously that price tag is not for all customers.But when you get such a premium device with all high end specs at below Rs.40,000 it is quite a remarkable deal and that’s the reason I call the Realme X50 Pro 5G the Budget Flagship.
The X50 Pro has a 6.44″ Super Amoled display with resolution of 2400×1080(FHD).The screen to body ratio is 84.9%,aspect ratio 20:9 and 409ppi(pixels per inch).Screen brightness is upto 1000+nits(an unit of brightness)as per company claims.The screen refresh rate of 90 Hz enables smooth videos and easier multitasking.The device is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
PROCESSOR & OS
X50 Pro has an octa core processor with Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset.It runs on the Realme UI powered by Android 10 OS.
STORAGE & RAM
The X50 Pro comes with 3 variants of RAM:6GB,8GB and 12GB alongwith 128GB,128GB and 256GB internal storage respectively.The LPDDR5 RAM powered by UFS 3.0 ensures a very very speedy device with excellent RAM management.
The X50 Pro has a quad camera module with 64MP main camera,a 12MP telephoto lens supporting 20X zoom,a 8MP ultra wide(119°)and macro lens and a 2MP Black and White portrait lens with F1.8 large aperture.
Low light photography is on another level in this phone.There is an Ultra Nightscape mode and a Super Nightscape mode.The Ultra Nightscape mode can take bright high quality night pictures even in 1Lux low light environment(as per company claims).You also have a tripod mode which enables detailed night images after the long exposure.
4K videos can be shot at 30/60 fps.It comes with UIS Max technology for more stable videos shot even while running or jumping.
Realme X50 Pro features an in display dual front camera module with a 32MP wide angle Sony lens and a 8MP(105°)ultra wide angle lens.The company claims it is the first smartphone to feature Edge Deformity Correction which can optimise face contours when you capture on the edge of photo.
SENSORS & OTHER FEATURES
The fingerprint sensor is an underdisplay optical one ,quite fast and the face unlock is of high standard as well.
Besides the customary features this device has a new Tactile Engine Linear Motor with 4D gaming vibration.This enables multiple vibrations while typing,photography and gaming and gives you an all round immersiveness.
The new Vapor Cooling system enables faster cooling of processor thereby making multitasking easier.
There is a new Game Space and Game Assistant feature where you can store all your games and then set the Do Not Disturb mode and semi transparent pop up mode to avoid distractions while gaming.
The X50 Pro has a 4200 mAH battery which supports a whopping 65W SuperDart Flash charging.It is advertised to get 100%charge in 35 minutes.
COLOUR & PRICE
There are 2 colour variants :Moss Green and Rust Red.The 6/128GB variant costs Rs.37,999,the 8/128GB variant Rs.39,999 and the 12/256GB variant Rs.44,999.
The Realme X50 Pro is the first 5G phone to be launched in India.Besides this attribute this phone also should be praised for the fact that it is one of the few phones with Snapdragon 865 SoC at such a price and also one of the firsts to do so.At the price tag it can be compared with the Redmi 10X Pro.
I said earlier that Realme has progresed in leaps and bounds.The Super Amoled display with 90Hz refresh rate is excellent and processor is the best available thus no doubts on speed.Camera quality is pretty good and there are many features which enhances photography.
In a nutshell you get full value for your money.
