Realme is one of the brands that gives the most talk lately. It has just presented its first 5G terminal, the new Realme X50 Pro 5G, of which we will show you our first impressions.
We already anticipate that we are probably facing one of the 5G smartphones with the best value for money on the market. As we have seen in analyzes such as the review of the Realme 5 Pro first, the Realme X2 Pro and the Realme 5, they are terminals that despite belonging to different ranges, have in common that they offer very good specifications for what they cost.
Let's start with the aesthetic section, which is one of the factors that we look at right after taking the Realme X50 Pro 5G out of the box. In this case, opt for a glass finish.
And first of all, it offers a sensation of a well-finished product, although it is Dirt and fingerprints leave a lot of marks.
As for the front of the terminal, we find a capsule-type notch in the purest Samsung Galaxy S10+ style. On the other hand, we appreciate a speaker to answer calls at the top, with a cutout that makes it visible.
This speaker would also be used when playing content, for stereo sound.
At the bottom we find the microSIM card tray, as the Realme X50 Pro 5G is a dual SIM mobile, although It does not have the possibility of expanding the storage via microSD. The USB C charging port is also located at the bottom, next to the speaker and a microphone through which we will answer calls.
On the right side we have only the power button.
On the left side, the volume up and down buttons.
In the upper part there is only a microphone to pick up the audio when we make video recordings.
Last but not least, on the back we find a module in which four photographic sensors and the Realme logo are integrated. It should be noted that the photographic sensors protrude significantly from the chassis.

We already anticipate that it is a high-end smartphone, now, let's see everything it brings inside:

Four rear and two front cameras
In the photographic section, Realme is already known for introducing as many sensors as possible in its smartphones, let's remember that this is the second high-end devicethat passes through our hands of the company, after the review of the Realme X2 Pro.
In this case, all sensors are equipped with artificial intelligence. Let's see what role each plays in the Realme X50 Pro 5G:
- Wide Angle: An 8 MP Sony sensor that captures 119º wide angle. Thanks to this lens we also have the possibility of taking macro photographs, to take images a few centimeters from an object.
- Main camera: Samsung Isocell GW1 sensor with 64 MP and 1.8 focal aperture. It uses "pixel binning" technology, which combines four pixels into one, reaching a pixel size of 1.6 μm. By default it would work at 16 MP to capture more light, although the camera software has a mode to capture at 64 MP.
- Telephoto: 13 MP, offers a 2.5 focal aperture and gives us the possibility of performing up to a 20x zoom in a hybrid way, in addition to the x5 zoom that Realme has already accustomed us to.
- Monochromatic sensor: it will help for the rest of the sensors, especially in low light situations, so we won't have to add a filter if we want to take photographs in black and white.
The front cameras have a dual configuration:
- Main sensor: 32 MP with an 80º angle, which will be the most used due to its higher quality.
- Wide angle sensor: an 8 MP sensor whose angle is 105º, which is useful if there are many people in one photograph.
As usual, thanks to the integration of artificial intelligence, depending on the scene detected, the photographic settings will change to give us an optimal resultOn the other hand, the camera app has a night mode, which according to Realme has been improved.
As we can see, the photographic section in the Realme X50 Pro 5G is more than complete, although we'll see what kind of results it offers us during your next review.
90Hz Super AMOLED display
Although the Realme X50 Pro 5G also allows you to set the refresh rate to 60 Hz, the fluidity that is offered to us on ascreen 6, 44 inches at 90 Hz is very noticeable at first glance. The panel is covered by Corning Gorilla Glass 5 and achieves a FHD+ resolution of 2,400 x 1,080 pixels
It is not new to enjoy a screen at 90 Hz, and we already tested it when we reviewed the Realme X2 Pro. The colors offered by the terminal are quite rich, although it will have to be tested in depth and see if you really notice the inclusion of HDR10+ on this screen.
The Realme X50 Pro 5G has an integrated fingerprint sensor on the front and, at least in the first uses, it seems well located. On the other hand, facial recognition has also been useful, since as soon as we pick up the phone we can unlock it.
The consequence of the Realme X50 Pro 5G bringing a front camera encapsulated on the side is that notifications will appear much more focused than in a device with a drop type notch, something that we will have to see how it affects our day to day.
Software, goodbye ColorOS
In the brief life of Realme, its terminals have always incorporated the same customization layer as its older brother, Oppo, into its ColorOS software. The new Realme X50 Pro 5G opts for Realme UI, which comes with certain differences and additions depending on which sections.
Anyway, in the review we will see in depth if there is any difference beyond the name, or, on the contrary, we find the same thing as before, only with another name. What we can anticipate is that the Realme X50 Pro 5G will go on sale with Android 10
Hardware, the latest of the latest
In terms of hardware, the Realme X50 Pro 5G puffs out its chest, as it opts for the fresh out of the oven Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 5G, a 7 nm 2.84 GHz processor and an Adreno 650 graphics card.
Different configurations of 6, 8, or 12 GB of DDR5 RAM will be available and between 128 o 256 GB of UFS 3.0 storage, a very fast standard that will speed up turning on the mobile and loading apps.
Without a doubt, the Realme X50 Pro 5G will be able to compete in terms of specifications with other high-end terminals that are yet to reach the throughout the year 2020.
The battery is 4,200 mAh, accompanied by a fast charging of 65 W, a very high number.
The Realme X50 Pro 5G integrates NFC, so it will be possible to make mobile payments through Google Pay, among other platforms.
Price and availability
The Realme X50 Pro 5G has just been presented and its launch is scheduled for the month of April 2020, without any specified the exact day. We do know the prices for Spain of the three configurations that will be launched:
- 8 GB RAM + 128 GB storage for 599 euros.
- 8 GB RAM + 256 GB storage for 669 euros.
- 12 GB RAM + 256 GB storage for 749 euros.
These are just some first impressions to see what the terminal brings with it, and we will have to wait for the full analysis of the Realme X50 Pro 5Gto know all its details in depth.
