    Realme X50 Pro 5G review

     54     

    Once a rare breed of smartphones, today the flagship killers are everywhere. And Realme is jumping on this proverbial bandwagon with one of the cheapest Snapdragon 865-equipped devices on the market - the Realme X50 Pro 5G.

    OnePlus may have moved on to the premium class, but Realme is successfully filling the void and it does more than just answer the call of the need for speed. Indeed, the Realme X50 Pro is fast - it has access to the fastest of networks, fastest of processors, and even the fastest charging.But it also impresses with a fluid 90Hz OLED HDR10+ screen, a flagship-grade quad-camera at the back, stereo speakers, and the new no-nonsense Realme UI based on Android 10.The Realme X50 Pro actually gets its main camera from the X2 Pro model - a 64MP primary - but there is also a 12MP tele for 2x optical zoom, an 8MP ultrawide shooter, and a 2MP depth sensor. The selfie experience has received a nice overhaul with a 32MP primary accompanied by an 8MP ultrawide imager.Anyway, here is the full specs to get you started.Realme X50 Pro 5G specsUnboxing the Realme X50 Pro
