Contents (maximize to view)

Following the launch of the 5i, it looks like realme is going fast-paced, and want to get a slice of Philippine market for 5G devices.

Yesterday, realme’s Marketing Lead posted something quite interesting on his Facebook Account, a photo with this caption:

“Usapang steak, hobbies, traffic, passion, at 5G na 120Hz pa.”

Now, we won’t be showing the photo here, but the last bunch of words could only point to one device – the newly launched realme X50 5G, (or maybe their other 5G devices too).

Now, this could only mean one of a few things, either this is a hint that they’re bringing it to the Philippines, or maybe they’re still thinking about it, but wanted some hype for it.

After all, they did mention that they are ready to provide lower priced 5G devices, as long as the infrastructure is ready.

To refresh your thoughts, realme X50 is the brand’s first 5G-powered smartphone, which boasts a 6.57-inch punch hole display with 120Hz refresh rate.

At the helm is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G, along with up to 12GB of RAM, and up to 256GB of storage. For optics, you get a 64MP main shooter, a 12MP 2x Telephoto for 5x optical zoom and up to 20x hybrid zoom, an 8MP ultra-wide, and a 2MP ultra-macro lens.

The device also boasts a couple of snappers up front – a 16MP wide-angle, and an 8MP ultra-wide sensor respectively. It runs ColorOS 7 and Android 10, and has a 4,200mAh battery with support for 30W VOOC Flash Charge.
