Reame CEO Madhav Sheth posted images of the company’s first 5G phone, the Realme X50 5G, days before its official announcement (it’s scheduled for a January 7 reveal). A previous teaser showed the front of the phone, featuring a dual punch hole for the selfie cameras.
Sheth’s images focus on the back instead, which is home to a quad camera. According to a leaked spec sheet we’re looking at a 64MP main cam, 8MP ultrawide snapper, 13MP telephoto (5x hybrid zoom) unit and a 2MP macro shooter. The setup on the front promises a 32MP main and 8MP ultrawide cameras.
The design of the back is similar to that of the X2, however, the X50 will be Realme’s first phone to use a punch hole for the selfie cam. The original Realme X was the company’s first phone with a pop-up camera – the X-series is often the first to get a new feature in the Realme family.
The Realme X50 will use a Snapdragon 765G chipset, which has an integrated X52 modem. It will be able to combine 5G and Wi-Fi connections for increased speed (this also improves the stability of the connection when the 5G signal is spotty). A Realme X50 Lite will be announced at the same event, though we don’t know how it will differ from the premium model (maybe it will be a 4G phone?).
