Today is a remarkable day for Realme as the Chinese company is launching multiple devices in its home country, which includes three smartphones. The first phone to take the center stage in the online event is Realme X50 Pro Player. The phone has the appearance of the regular Realme X50 Pro but with extra hardware-boosting feature. Read on to see more details about the phone.
Realme X50 Pro Player Features
The Realme X50 Pro Player comes with many of the impressive flagship specs – Snapdragon 865 chipset with 5G connectivity, 6.44-inch AMOLED screen with 90 Hz refresh rate, and LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.0 storage. In addition, the phone comes with Hyper Boost 3.0 that allocates all the memory, chipset, and battery power to increase the gaming experience. This means there will be no redundant notifications, background running apps, while the location services are turned off.
Realme CMO, Xu Qi, made it known that the battery will remain the same and will maintain the 65W fast-charging capabilities. The 4200mAh battery will charge from 0 to 100% in 35 minutes, while the phone can be up and running to provide about an hour of calls just after three minutes charge.
HyperBoost 3.0 will also switch between Wi-Fi to LTE or 5G with zero lag, whichever is quickest, so there is no drop in performance of the online gaming. Realme CMO also introduced the X50 Pro Player cooling capabilities – it will have graphite sheets between the battery and the back panel to help dissipate the heat and provide optimal gaming.
Having better gaming capabilities without increasing the price means some specs have to go – the X50 Pro Player replaces the 64 MP camera with a 48 MP module, and the telephoto camera makes way to a 2 MP macro shooter. On the front we also have a downgrade – the 32 MP + 8 MP ultra-wide cameras are now 16 MP + 2 MP depth sensor.
Realme X50 Pro Player Price and Availability
The Realme X50 Pro Player price is CNY2,699 ($380/€350) for the 6GB/128GB version, CNY2,999 ($420/€385) for the 8GB/128GB model, CNY3,299 ($460/€425) for the top model with 12GB/128GB configuration. The phone will be offered in two colors – Phantom Black, and Light Speed Silver. Pre-order will kick-start later in the day while the first flash sale is scheduled for June 1, 2020.
There is also an anniversary Realme X50 Pro version, celebrating one year of the company’s presence at the domestic market. The phone is not for sale – it will be gifted to special fans following raffles and other activities, posted on the official Weibo page of the brand.
