Realme's CEO, Xu Qi Chase, has announced the X50 via Weibo. This upcoming phone is to be the first phone to launch under this brand-name with 5G. This phone may also have a dual punch-hole selfie camera, and may offer an "advanced experience".

Realme's CEO has announced a new mobile device from this OPPO sub-brand. It is called the X50, and is to be this company's first phone with 5G. A teaser released with this announcement shows what could be dual punch-hole selfie cameras peeping out of this image from a front panel. Furthermore, the same image seems to indicate beyond a doubt that the X50's 5G will be dual-band. This suggests that it may rock the only SoC capable of this connectivity at present: the Exynos 980.

Should this be the case, it may put the Realme X50 squarely in the cross-hairs of the Vivo X30 series. These are the only other upcoming phones known to run on this processor. They are currently thought to be worthwhile phones beyond their 5G features, with rumors hinting at 60MP quad cameras, 4500mAh batteries with 33-watt charging and at least 8GB of RAM.

The possible Realme alternative may be no slouch, either: its brand's CEO has also indicated that it will offer an "advanced experience". However, the same will apparently be along the lines of that delivered by other X-series variants, which to date include the Snapdragon 730G-powered X2 and the XT, which runs on the 712 and has a 64MP camera. The Exynos 980, which is an 8-nanometer (nm) octa-core chipset with a maximum clock of 2.20 GHz and a Mali-G76 MP5 GPU, may compete well among these decent mid-range options.
