How cheaper will Realme X50 5G be

Realme X50 / Pro review - from 262 € FHD +, 120Hz / 90Hz, 5G, NFC

High refresh rates on smartphone displays seem to be the new trend. Realme offers with the new Realme X50 therefore apparently strong competition for the Redmi K30, which is similarly equipped. Right now you get that Realme X50 For 0,00€ on . The phone offers a lush borderless IPS display with 6.57 ″ with a resolution of 2400 × 1080 pixels. The smartphone is brought up to speed by a Snapdragon 765G, including 5G LTE connection. That should be pretty interesting at the given price.

Realme X50 PRO flagship presented

Meanwhile, too Global versions of Realme X50 Pro offered with corresponding LTE bands, German language, Google Play Store and updates capability.

Of course, there is also new news directly on the Realme x50 Pro. The newly announced and presented smartphone will again be equipped with high-end hardware. The Super AMOLED Display measures 6,44 Inches at 2400×1080 Pixel resolution included HDR10 + and full DCI-P3 Support with a 20: 9 format. In contrast to the normal Realme x50, the display relies on only 90Hz refresh rate and not also to 120Hz and is also dimensioned smaller. Certainly to save the battery a little.

The Dual punch hole opening for the 32+ 8 MP front camera remains as with the normal x50. The driving force inside, including 5G connection, is of course the Snapdragon 865 Octa-Core ready. As usual, the storage equipment can be selected flexibly and can be up to 12GB DDR5 RAM include, as well as up to 256GB (Dual Chanel Flash Storage UFS 3.0) Storage space.

The main camera uses 4 sensors, including the 64 megapixel Samsung GE1 sensor (wide angle), a 12 MP (telephoto) + 8 MP (ultra wide angle) + monochrome sensor. The hybrid zoom, which can digitally enlarge up to 20x, is advertised in large quantities. The current trend to record 8k movies is not something Realme will do for the time being, this function will not be available in the Realme X50 pro. Slow motion with 960 fps or 4k in 30 fps is supported as usual.
It should be interesting with the loudspeaker, here one relies on one Stereo solution with Dolby Atmos and High Res Audio. Is also Bluetooth 5.1, NFC and the USB Type-C 65 watt fast charge with it. The battery pack measures 4200mAh Capacity. Further details on the existing LTE bands for our regions or a global version are still pending. We still have to wait for real prices and availability. The 8 + 128GB version should start at € 599, the 8 + 256GB version at € 699 and the largest version with 12GB RAM and 256GB storage space should cost € 749. Based on the prices from the Spanish area, you can see that no extremely inexpensive high-end package is to be expected here. Hopefully the prices will not rise as rapidly as recently with Xiaomi's Mi 10.

Realme X50

If you don't have to go back to Volume 20, which is still often needed, you can grab it right away, everyone else is waiting for a global version that will certainly follow soon.

The competition from China is definitely not sleeping. Realme has clearly set itself the goal of importing the top dog and, meanwhile, the manufacturer, which is now also available in Germany, of putting Xiaomi in their place. The Realme X50 uses a 6.57 ″ borderless IPS display in 20: 9 format and a resolution of 2400 × 1080 pixels. One thing stands out straight away: the double punch hole / hole notch of the two cameras on the front. Similar to Samsung only arranged on the left half of the device. Or just like the current K30 offshoot from Xiaomi.

The highlight, which cannot be seen at first glance, is the extremely smooth IPS LCD panel 120Hz refresh rate. The system and everything that is operated in it is displayed in such a fluffy, relaxed manner and is partly still legible, especially when scrolling faster. With games, it is up to the respective manufacturer whether this high frame rate is used, but often you are limited to 60Hz. (Also requires significantly less computing power)
The performance delivers a Snapdragon 765G octa-core processor with 2.4 GHz which should make the smartphone an Antutu score of 332,308. That is easily enough for all common games and normal everyday apps. Also stand optionally 6, 8 or 12 GB RAM and 128 or 256 GB of storage to the side. Thanks to the microSD slot (?) It can be expanded again. LPDDR4X is used as the main memory and UFS 2.1 as the memory connection.

Like other manufacturers, Realme relies on one in the X50 Quad camera. There is one on the back 64 megapixel sensor (Samsung Bright S5KGW1) together with a 12MP telesensor for carrying. Another 8 megapixel wide-angle sensor can also be used. And because it's not enough, there is also a 2 MP macro sensor for close-ups. The Dual front camera use one 16 MP Sony IMX471 sensor in combination with an 8MP sensor that should not only serve as a blur / bokeh / portrait sensor but also for wide-angle shots. Video recordings of the main camera can of course be recorded in 4k and slow motion clips with up to 960fps.

The other equipment is good: dual-band WLAN, dual-SIM, LTE (without band 20/28), 5G band 78, a notification LED (?), USB Type-C, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC and GPS (Galileo / BDS / GLONASS). Hardly any wish should be left unanswered here, only inductive charging or official watertightness could be missed. The fingerprint sensor is not located under the glass or on the back this time, but was inserted into the frame on the side.
The battery offers 4200mAh Capacity and should therefore be under for a good runtime Android 10 worry, but you should consider that the 120Hz display needs a lot of additional power. But thanks to VOOC with 30 watts and rapid charging, this is less of a problem. Include the dimensions of the smartphone 75.8 x 163.8 x 8.9mm with a weight of 202g.

When specifying with the note (?), We are not yet entirely sure, currently there are differences in the notes on the technical information on the Internet. If there are relevant facts, we will of course adjust the contribution.

  • The phone has not yet been rated on Amazon. (As of January 20th, 2020)

Reviews / experiences / opinions

The Realme x50 pro has arrived in our editorial office. As you can already guess in the article above, Realme has stuck to its optics formula, after all we got the ultra-beautiful matt green version. Fortunately not only a little different in color but also not as slippery as most current smartphones. Visually, we don't expect any new achievements so far, but Realme has managed to make the rear camera protrude more flat than is often the case. Everything is safely covered and protected here with a protective cover. The workmanship of the smartphone is flawless, the buttons on the side are firm, without much play, are pleasant to press and give good feedback. The positioning means that they are easily accessible even for small hands.

The fingerprint sensor, on the other hand, is a bit too deep. Here I often have to hold my smartphone or use it with two hands if possible. Especially those with larger hands will have to take uncomfortable, uncomfortable, strenuous positions with their thumbs to unlock the Realme x50 Pro. However, the InCell fingerprint sensor works really fantastic, too bad that it was set too low. Alternatively, you can of course do without it and work with the fast-functioning face unlock, if you want. Due to the 20: 9 format, there is also a top-heaviness here, the weight of 211g is not entirely without it.

Display

Since the display measures just 6.44 inches, I was a bit surprised because the trend is towards larger and larger screens. The AMOLED display offers a decent brightness so that I can still read the content even in direct sunlight. As usual, the viewing angles are good, the colors are quite strong but not too saturated. In the display settings, however, I can only change the color temperature or choose a neutral display with less color intensity.

If you like, you could also reduce the 90 Hz to 60 Hz here, but that makes little sense because then you would not get this fluid, brisk, clean display during operation. Here, too, you have a lot of fun with the increased refresh rate, but mostly only in the Android system itself, rarely in games or apps as they are usually limited to 60Hz. Exceptions confirm the rule, so Real Racing 3 or Shadowgun: Legend is open as far as the FPS limitation is concerned. The inputs are updated with 180Hz, accordingly all inputs are implemented directly, there are no delays or input lags.

camera

Given the given price segment, one would probably expect the same from the camera. It's definitely not bad, but not great either, just good. Anyone who places their value more on performance than on the camera will still be satisfied. All of them are good pictures with good details and neutral coloring of the pictures. The dynamic range occasionally fluctuates a bit, the images sometimes appear a bit too bright, but are not overexposed, the contrast and white balance harmonize well here. If you like, you can also get more colors with the Color Boost function, but these are then too saturated and details are quickly lost.

The portrait mode works great, misusing the main camera as a selfie cam produces great, sharp, detailed images with a natural skin color and pigmentation, very nicely detailed. Without the portrait mode, the picture only looks a bit paler, but it may also have been due to the lighting situation. Here, too, we have a nice sharpness and no filter effects that are intended on the face.

All images are downscaled using the pixel binning function, but I can also address the 64MP sensor natively, depending on the subject, I also get more details and sharpness in the image depth. However, the pictures of ~ 10MB are then quickly well over 35Mb. Here you should rather use the telephoto lens with the 2x optical zoom. Here I always get sharper and more detailed pictures, in contrast to the large native 64 MP recording where it is partly a matter of luck how calm I was when taking the picture.


(Wide-angle shots, macro shots, 2x optical and 5x digital zoom)

In addition to wide-angle shots, which are more likely to fall under usable, as the details are reduced here and the usual sharpness of the edge like a rather blurred image, you can also take macro shots. They are a nice gimmick, but the details, the color scheme and the sharpness cannot pick me up. The pictures mostly look blurry and dirty.


(Front camera with blur / depth of field, wide angle and muddy low light images)

The front camera also usually takes good pictures but is not always very sharp, you have to keep a medium distance here, in portrait mode the picture also looks a bit over-sharpened, but the separation between foreground and background works great. With the same light situation, however, there are always overexposed areas here and there, especially on the forehead. The wide-angle mode of the front camera changes the color scheme and dynamic of the image, it becomes darker and more saturated in terms of colors. As usual, night shots with little light are only faded, blurred and not detailed.
