Before the cancellation of MWC 2020, Realme was all set to unveil its flagship Realme X50 Pro 5G at the world’s largest event for smartphones. But Realme is still on target to launch the phone this month. Now, the Realme X50 Pro 5G will be unveiled during an online launch event that’s taking place on February 24.
The BBK-owned company has now revealed via a teaser that the phone will have support for 65W fast charging. The teaser was shortly released after Xiaomi unveiled the Mi 10 Pro that has support for 50W fast charging.
This will only be the second phone with support for 65W fast charging. OPPO’s Reno Ace, that was launched in October last year, was the first smartphone to come with 65W fast charging. Given the relation between OPPO and Realme, the tech is expected to be quite similar.
Last year December, Realme was spotted filing trademark applications for Dart and SuperDart names that are likely to be used for its charging tech. This will be a step away from the VOOC moniker that it shared with OPPO smartphones. Whether this means that Dart will boast of different tech than VOOC remains to be seen.
Apart from the 65W fast charging, the X50 Pro 5G is expected to be packed to the brim with the latest and greatest of tech. Firstly, it’ll be powered by the latest flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor that is expected to be paired with up to 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage.
The phone will most likely run on Android 10 with Realme UI on top. Also, given the trend of higher refresh rate displays, we can expect the phone to have a 90Hz display at least. But given that competing brands have already introduced 120Hz display, don’t be too surprise if you see a 120Hz display.
As far it’s Indian launch is confirmed, there’s no information yet. But given Madhav Sheth’s involvement in the teasers of the X50 Pro 5G, we won’t be surprised if the phone does make it to India.
Also, when you consider that even Xiaomi is planning to launch the Xiaomi Mi 10 series in India, the launch of a competing flagship phone from Realme makes all the more sense.
