Realme X50 5G now available in Europe, is actually the X50m in disguise

Peter, 08 July 2020

The Realme X50 5G has arrived in Europe. The phone became available earlier today, you can find it on Realme.com at a price of €350. There is only one memory configuration, GB of RAM and 128 GB storage, and two color options, Jungle Green and Ice Silver (which is actually blue).

€350 is the same price as the Realme 6 Pro, which uses the slower Snapdragon 720G chipset (and is 4G only) and the 6.6” screen tops out at 90 Hz. The Snapdragon 765G chipset inside the X50 brings not only 5G connectivity, but a more powerful GPU to boot. And it needs it as its 6.57” display has 120Hz refresh rate. However, the 6 Pro gets 2 extra gigs of RAM at the same price.

Here’s an important note – the European X50 launched as the X50m elsewhere. The two X50 models are pretty similar, save for the cameras. The euro model gets a 48MP main camera on the back, compared to 64MP on the other X50 and the Realme 6 Pro.

Also, this model loses the 12 MP telephoto camera (2x zoom, 54 mm), which is available on the other X50 as well as on the Realme 6 Pro. Finally, the secondary cam on the front is a depth sensor instead of an 8 MP ultra wide cam.

In terms of battery the three phones are essentially the same – the new Realme X50 has a 4,200 mAh battery that can be charged from 0% to 70% in 30 minutes (a full charge takes 55 minutes). This is thanks to the 30 W Dart charger, which is powerful enough to go from 0-43% even while you’re gaming.

The X50 supports 12 different 5G bands and can automatically switch to 4G to save power then back to 5G when an app needs a fast connection. It can also juggle dual-band Wi-Fi to ensure a fast, stable, efficient connection.

There’s also the Realme X50 Pro 5G, which is much pricier, €600. It does come with a Super AMOLED display, Snapdragon 865 and 65W fast charger (plus the better camera version with 64 MP main and 12 MP tele modules).

Meanwhile, the Realme Buds Q are launching on the Old Continent as well. These cost only €30 (actually, €20 if you buy them alongside any Realme phone), but they boast 10 mm drivers, IPX4 rain and sweat resistance and 4.5 hour playback (20 hours total with the charging case). These are available right now on Realme.com as well.

Anyone with this phone can tell me if Volte works TMobile USA or EE UK

I mean not exactly the same company, just have the same parent company - BBK, which is also a parent company of Vivo... Which honestly makes the whole thing even weirder than if they were completely different companies - I mean, OnePlus puts so much ...
