Realme has eventually begun teasing its first 5G-enabled smartphone, announced the Realme X50. It will be revealed in China in the upcoming months with a new design for the device.
While in June, the company’s CEO, Madhav Sheth, verified that Realme is operating on beginning to build a 5G enabled smartphone to the market towards the end of this year.
No extra information and details were shared, but it appears like we are definitely close to its launch. Xu Qi Chase, the CMO of the Chinese arm, verified that this 5G smartphone will be named the Realme X50 and will make its first appearance in China in the upcoming weeks.
While the leap from X2 to X50 actually is interesting, Chase described the philosophy and thought behind the name. X is for the X list and lineup which is the pioneer line with all the latest technology that Realme is completing, 5 describes the incoming 5G generation of smartphones and 0 is for new starts – much like the 5G-enabled expectation of the mobile phone business.
The Realme X50 5G will operate both on standalone and non-standalone 5G networks, which indicates easier development and broader coverage of the next-generation connectivity. Realme is still to explain more further about the smartphone, including any fixed date for its launch.
He also gave a very comparable-looking teaser image, which presented us with a few more features about the upcoming Realme X50. Firstly, it will assist and support both standalone (SA) and non-standalone (NSA) standards of sub-6GHz 5G networks, for better connectivity in areas where 5G support may not be enough.
The teaser also reveals the shape of the device, which presents a dual punch-hole display, with the cameras set in the left corner. It will offer the Realme X50 the first smartphone of the brand to sport a punch-hole display.
Realme had also earlier verified that it would be one of the leading manufacturers to produce Qualcomm 5G SoC-powered devices to India in 2020.
