On the rear the Realme X50 5G brings the popular 64MP f/1.8 snapper, which delivers 4-in-1 binned 16MP snapshots, along with a 12MP tele + 8MP ultrawide + 2MP macro setup.

The built-in 4,200mAh battery is capable of 30W VOOC 4.0 wired charging.

The Realme X50 5G launches with Color OS 7.0 over Android 10. This is the first phone to pack the company's custom Realme UI on top instead of using what Oppo provides with Color OS.
