Realme X50 5G launched in Thailand; international launch likely to follow soon
The Realme X50 Pro is Realme's 'affordable flagship' of 2020, one of them anyway. It also happens to have a scaled-down version called the Realme X50 5G. The phone was restricted to the Chinese market, while the Pro variant was released worldwide. Realme has now launched the Realme X50 in Thailand for 12,990 THB (US$410). The company has even thrown in an air humidifier, air purifier, headset, and VIP membership for those who pre-order the device.
As is the case with most Chinese OEMs, Realme devices are debuted in China. Most of them do make it to international markets eventually, sometimes with a different name. The Realme X50 5G, thankfully, gets to keep its name. However, it comes with slightly different hardware. For starters, its quad-camera array consists of a 48MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 2MP macro lens, and a 2MP portrait lens. Furthermore, its 16MP front-facing camera is paired with a 2MP wide-angle lens this time around.
Everything else about the global variant of the Realme X50 is identical, though. It uses the same Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC, and 4,200mAh battery with 30W Dart Charge support. Its 6.5-inch IPS LCD panel is clocked at 120Hz. There appears to be only one memory configuration of the phone up for grabs at the moment, but we can expect Realme to soon release other variants.
Now that the Realme X50 has made its way out of China -albeit with different hardware- it is only a matter of time before it is available for purchase in other regions. Realme will likely release the phone in India first.Whether or not it will come with 5G functionality enabled remains to be seen.
