The Realme X50 is one of the first phones that will launch with the new, 5G-capable Snapdragon 765G processor. A new Geekbench leak may have spilled more of this phone's specs. It seems that it will have 8GB of RAM and probably feature the latest ColorOS Android skin.

Realme will launch what will be the first Snapdragon 765G phone of the new year, the X50, on January 7, 2002. This phone supports dual-band 5G as standard thanks to its new Qualcomm silicon that integrates the X52 modem. A new device on Geekbench 4 has a model number that makes further insight on the same device.

It is listed as the "realme RMX2051", whereas phones from this brand have had model numbers along the lines of RMX 19XX thus far. This suggests the new number pertains to the coming year - or, possibly, to an emerging spec such as 5G. It has 8GB of RAM and Android 10, which is plausible for what may comprise the upper mid range in 2020.

Unfortunately, this set of Geekbench results exhibits a blank 'Motherboard' field, making confirmation of the presence of a 765G SoC difficult. On the other hand, the CPU here is described as 1.8GHz, which is indeed the new processor's base clock.

As for its performance, comparing this putative X50 to to what is probably its most direct predecessor (a Realme RMX1991 (or X2) running on the Snapdragon 730G) shows that it can outpace its forebears, but only by a little.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
