Realme may be the lesser-known spin-off from Oppo, but thanks to its aggressive pricing and the occasional collaborations with design icon Naoto Fukasawa, it's been doing quite well in Asia. And just last month, the company brought us the Realme X50 which happens to be the most affordable phone with a 120Hz display; not to mention that it's also a mid-range 5G device. So what's next? The Realme X50 Pro, of course.

Unsurprisingly, the "Pro" here is mainly referring to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset, which is the staple for practically all 5G flagships so far this year. This means the phone will connect to more 5G bands (including Europe and India, where it will also launch) to take full advantage of its 360-degree surround antenna. Likewise, you'll get to enjoy WiFi 6 connectivity here. Another bonus with this chipset is the speedy LPDDR5 RAM stacked on top of it, which ensures the phone will respond quicker in general.

New leak reveals the Galaxy Fold 2 will feature Super Fast Charging

  New leak reveals the Galaxy Fold 2 will feature Super Fast Charging We're less than a week into the new year, but the deluge of new phones has already begun. On Friday, Samsung announced the long-awaited (and frequently leaked) Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note 10 Lite, both of which will be on display at CES 2020 next week. But those aren't the only new phones we're going to see from Samsung at CES this year, as the company's next foldable smartphone is expected to be unveiled as well. Earlier this week, YonhapEarlier this week, Yonhap News Agency reported that a new foldable phone from Samsung may launch ahead of the Galaxy S11 series (or Galaxy S20, as recent rumors have suggested it will be called).

The Realme X 50 Pro 5 G was launched today. The flagship from Realme comes with 5 G connectivity, a 90Hz display, 65W SuperDart fast charging and more. Realme ' s X 50 Pro is a cheaper 5 G flagship with super - fast charging .

Realme X 50 Pro First Impressions: Speedy Chip, Fast Charging , Smooth Display. Realme ’ s first flagship device came in the form of the Realme X 2 Pro last year, but now they’ve launched Portrait Distortion Correction, Hyper Text, Ultra 64MP Mode, Ultra NightScape, Super NightScape, Panoramic

Other "Pro" bits include better cameras, Dolby Atmos stereo speakers, a beefed-up in-display fingerprint reader, an improved vapor-cooling system and 35-minute, 65W "SuperDart" flash charge (it's basically a rebranded version of Oppo's "SuperVOOC 2.0"). These are all packaged into a low-profile "Moss Green" or "Rust Red" body, featuring a smooth frosted glass back which shows a subtle metallic shine at certain angles.

Oddly enough, Realme kind of went the opposite direction with the X50 Pro's 1080p display. Rather than keeping the 6.57-inch 120Hz LCD (from JDI and BOE), the Pro model has to make do with a smaller, slower 6.44-inch 90Hz Samsung AMOLED panel. While some may be disappointed by the lack of a 120Hz AMOLED panel, this was most likely a price-conscious decision made by the brand. Not that this is a bad thing, mind; 90Hz AMOLED is already a noticeable upgrade for most people, and we liked it on both the OnePlus 7 Pro and the Oppo Reno Ace.

OnePlus 8 Pro might have a feature no OnePlus phone has ever had before

  OnePlus 8 Pro might have a feature no OnePlus phone has ever had before Ever since its inception, OnePlus has used the same slogan with every new smartphone release: "Never Settle." Yet the company has always had to settle in various ways to make sure its flagship killers didn’t go over budget. The features that OnePlus famously snubbed include official waterproof ratings and wireless charging, explaining over the years that water resistance ratings add extra manufacturing costs and that wireless charging isn’t where it should be. Things might change, however, in the near future. require(["medianetNativeAdOnArticle"], function (medianetNativeAdOnArticle) { medianetNativeAdOnArticle.

Chinese brand Realme ' s latest is India's first 5 G phone. The X 50 Pro comes the closest yet to becoming a true flagship . There’s still no wireless charging scanner, stereo speakers, 4,200 mAh battery that supports Oppo’s 65-watt super fast charging , six cameras in total, and dual-mode 5 G

The X50 Pro maxes out at 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM with 256GB of UFS 3.0 storage. It comes with a 4,200mAh battery along with the usual NFC (Google Pay-friendly), dual-SIM tray and dual-mic noise cancellation. But nope, no headphone jack here.

Much like the X50, the X50 Pro has a set of quad cameras on the back and dual cameras for selfies, but with a slightly different set of sensors and optics. The rear group is led by a 64-megapixel Samsung GW1 chip with a f/1.8 aperture for super high-resolution shots, or for 4-in-1 pixel-binning to boost sensitivity in low-light scenarios. Below that is an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera, which also handles macro shots at down to 3cm. The top camera is a 12-megapixel telephoto shooter, which offers up to 5x optical hybrid zoom (or a gimmicky 20x hybrid zoom, if you're really desperate). Last but not least, there is a 2-megapixel f/2.4 monochromatic camera at the bottom which assists the main camera's portrait mode.

Xiaomi spin-off Poco returns with the 120Hz X2 for $225

  Xiaomi spin-off Poco returns with the 120Hz X2 for $225 Poco is aiming directly at RealmeBack in the summer of 2018, Xiaomi launched a new brand called Poco with the aim of providing flagship-level specs at the lowest possible price. The India-first Poco F1 wasn’t the prettiest phone in the world, but it turned heads by including a Snapdragon 845 for under $300 — then the brand largely went dark. Poco now markets its phones independently from Xiaomi, and the X2 is the first product since that operational change.

The Realme X 50 Pro will be the first device from the brand (and one of the first overall) to boast the Snapdragon 865 chipset. This should let it offer flagship level performance and offer user next-gen’ 5 G connectivity. The battery specs are also stunning, as we’ve come to expect from Realme and Oppo

The Realme X 50 Pro arrives in India with 5 G connectivity, the new Snapdragon 865 chipset, six cameras and super - fast charging . The Realme X 50 Pro price in India starts from Rs 37,999, which is quite the bargain for a 5 G flagship smartphone. The Realme X 50 Pro launches in the country in

One of the main photography features that Realme is pitching for the X50 series is "Nightscape 3.0," which comes with a "Tripod Mode" that does super long exposure of up to 50 seconds for some interesting night shots, so long as you can mount your phone onto a tripod. "Nightscape 3.0" also has an "Ultra Nightscape Mode," which essentially boosts the camera's sensitivity to take bright images even when illuminance is down to just 1 Lux. As for video, it's just the usual 4K@30fps recording with two levels of video stabilization, and there's also real-time bokeh effect video if you want to try something different.

On the other side of the phone, you get a 32-megapixel f/2.5 main selfie camera along with an 8-megapixel f/2.2 ultra-wide shooter, both powered by Sony sensors and are stuffed into the screen's top-left punch-hole. Again, there's real-time bokeh effect video recording here, but users will likely be more interested in taking slow-motion selfies at 1080p@120fps (just don't call them "slofies").

The Realme X50 Pro runs on Android 10 with Realme UI -- essentially a near-stock Android experience with some goodies ported over from Oppo's ColorOS, such as gesture navigation and smart assistant features. And of course, the software runs even smoother on the 90Hz display. One cool feature here is Dual Mode Music Share, which lets you play music through wired (USB) earphones and Bluetooth earphones simultaneously, and you can even pick up calls with the earphones you're wearing while letting your friend continue listening to music with the other pair.

There's no word on US availability just yet, as Realme is targeting Europe for now, with Spain being the launch market in April. The Realme X50 Pro will start from 599 euros (about $650) for the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage version, and maxing out at 749 euros (about $810) with 12GB of RAM + 256GB storage. These are cheaper than even some of the recent 4G flagships, but apparently the prices will be even lower in China.
