In less than one day Realme will officially launch its next flagship. The successor of the Realme X2 Pro will be called Realme X50 Pro 5G and besides being a flagship carrying a great price tag, it will also be the first 5G smartphone from the company launched by Oppo. Thanks to several leaks and official teasers, we do not need to wait for tomorrow in order to know the main specifications of the new “affordable flagship”. This is a rumor roundup listing all the known specs and features of the Realme X50 Pro 5G ahead of the official launch.
Realme X50 Pro 5G Rumor Roundup
The design of the Realme X50 Pro 5G will not be so different from its more affordable sibling Realme X50 5G launched last month. Just like the vanilla X50, the Realme X50 Pro 5G will come with a dual punch-hole display, the same shape for the camera module (four rear cameras arranged vertically with a LED flash on the right), a glass back and a metal frame, as confirmed in official renders which partially showed the phone design.
But the color variants will be different: Realme X50 Pro 5G will be available in Rust Red and Most Green, as you can read on the official teaser on Realme’s website. On the bottom border of the phone, there will be a SIM tray placed on the left, a microphone, a USB Type-C port to charge the battery and a speaker. The volume balancer will be placed on the right side of the phone, while the power key should be on the right side.
Realme X50 Pro 5G will boast an amazing display. It will be an AMOLED panel with a high 90 Hz refresh ratio and an in-display fingerprint reader and these are official details just like the ones listed in the design paragraph above. According to a leaked screenshot, the display will have a 20:9 aspect ratio and a Full HD+ resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. It will be a dual punch-hole display with two front cameras embedded. We still do not know the exact size of the display; Realme X50 5G is equipped with a 6.57-inch panel, but this does not mean anything.
Specs & Software
Under the hood, Realme X50 Pro 5G will pack the most powerful Qualcomm’s chipset: we are talking about the octa-core Snapdragon 865 with a dual mode 5G modem (Snapdragon X55) supporting both sub-6 GHz frequencies and mmWave. The SoC will be paired with 12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256 GB of UFS 3.0 native storage. The phone is also expected to come in more affordable configurations with less RAM and storage.
Users will find Android 10 out of the box, customized by the new Realme UI 1.0. According to leaked benchmarks, Realme X50 Pro 5G will be one of the devices with the highest performance in the whole market. On AnTuTu, the device broke every record with a total score superior to 600,000 points. However, even though Realme’s CMO Xu Qi Chase shared a screenshot with that result, AnTuTu did not confirm it. This means it might be an offline test. In a previous test, the handset scored 574,986 points.
In a promotional teaser published on the microblogging platform Weibo, the company revealed that the Realme X50 Pro 5G will come with a 64 MP quad-camera setup. The camera will feature 20x hybrid zoom support, Realme’s SAT smooth zoom technology and seamless switching between photo and video mode. The rest of the rear camera configuration is not yet confirmed.
According to rumors, the telephoto lens will come with a 13 MP resolution. On the front side, there will be a dual selfie camera including a 32 MP main sensor with UIS Max Super Video Stabilization, as confirmed on another official teaser shared on Weibo. The main sensor will be paired with an ultra wide angle lens with a 105 degree field of view. It looks like the camera department has improved a lot if we compare the device to the Realme X2 Pro. Its predecessor had its cameras as the weakest point since they can be considered as the only midrange feature of the handset.
Unfortunately, Realme did not confirm the battery capacity of the Realme X50 Pro 5G and this does not leave us optimistic about it. We expect a battery capacity superior to 4000 mAh, but it might be just slightly above that threshold. On the other hand, Realme X50 Pro 5G will be one of the fastest charging smartphones out there. It will support the new SuperDart Charge technology with a power 65W. We do not know how much time it will take for a complete charge, it will depend on the battery capacity.
Oppo Reno Ace is another device featuring a 65W fast charging technology and it brings its 4000 mAh battery from 0 to 100 percent in just 30 minutes. Blazing speeds. According to the CMO Xu Qi Chase, Realme X50 Pro 5G will ship with a 65W charger out of the box. It will be a GaN charger, so much more compact and lighter than other high speed chargers such as the one of the Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro. Consider that, besides being more compact, GaN chargers are usually much more expensive than regular ones.

Realme X50 Pro 5G was initially scheduled to launch at MWC 2020 in Barcellona. But after the MWC 2020’s cancellation due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the company will announce its flagship in an online launch event in Madrid on February 24, at 10:00 AM CET. The company will also hold an event in New Delhi (India) on February 24 at 2:30 local time (same time as the Madrid launch).
The flagship was advertised as India’s first 5G smartphone, but it will not launch in India only. It will also come to the European market. The Chinese giant still did not reveal the official pricing, but according to rumors, the handset will be priced around ₹50,000 in India, which roughly translates into $696.
