The Realme X50 was one of the first phones to rock the Snapdragon 765G, thus also making it among the first 5G phones of 2020. Now, there is evidence that a version of the same without this connectivity may launch in Singapore. This is in accordance with a new leak from Twitter.
Deirdre O'Donnell,

The Realme X50 was this OEM's first 5G phone, and was also the first to launch with the Snapdragon 765G SoC that has brought this relatively new spec to multiple mid-rangers in 2020. Now, it seems the brand is shaping up to release this phone all over again, but just with 4G/LTE this time.

This is suggested by a piece of documentation allegedly lifted by the leaker @smartvenkat on Twitter from Singapore's IMDA telecomms authority. It distinctly lists a device called the RMX2144 - the X50 - that has WCMDA, LTE, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, NFC, GPS and no further forms of wireless data.

Therefore, Realme may indeed have another X50-series variant in the works, one that will join the Pro, Pro Player Edition and X50m in this increasingly extensive list. It also seems the putative new blood will come with a different processor: the 765G has an inbuilt 5G modem, rather than one that can be left out or off in a new release.

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.
