Realme has announced that it will launch its 5G-enabled flagship phone, the X50 Pro, in China on March 12, 2020. The OEM has also had the device approved for sale in this market by TENAA. The resulting leak reveals the possibility of a storage SKU that is not currently available in other markets.

Realme has already launched the Snapdragon 865-powered X50 Pro 5G in India and Europe, where this premium device starts for as little as ~US$517. However, the phone has not yet been made available in this OEM's home market, China. The company has addressed this with a new introductory event set for March 12, 2020.

This announcement has come in conjunction with a new TENAA certification that shows the X50 Pro (or RMX2071) is indeed cleared for sale in the national telecomms authority's jurisdiction. This documentation shows that the device has the exact same dimensions and premium-level camera arrays as the international SKUs; however, it also has an additional internal storage spec that is not seen in these existing units.

It indicates a half-terabyte option, whereas the 65W charging-enabled flagship has only heretofore exhibited 128GB and 256GB versions. This new upper limit may end up paired to the phone's top-end 12GB RAM SKU.

Therefore, it will be interesting to see if the new possible configuration - which may or may not have been produced in response to the OPPO Find X2 series and its own similar offering - will be available straightaway after its new launch, and, if so, how it is to be priced.

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.
