The new Realme X50 Pro 5G is a cross between the X50 5G and the X2 Pro. Having looked at both these phones previously, my job’s already done for this one and I’m off home now!

Like the other 2 handsets, the X50 Pro 5G has a Gorilla Glass 5 front and back and an aluminium frame. It weighs in a little heavier than the others though at 205g. The screen is near identical to the X2 Pro’s Super AMOLED but at 6.44” compared to 6.5”. Both have a 90Hz refresh rate for silky smooth scrolling.

Inside the X50 Pro has the powerful Snapdragon 865 processor with the X55 modem for 5G connectivity. Available with 6, 8 or 12GB of RAM and 128 or 256 of non-expandable storage, the X50 Pro also has the faster UFS 3.0 for faster read and write speeds.

6 cameras

Again, the cameras in the X50 Pro are similar to the X2 Pro with a 64MP f/1.8 wide, 12MP f/2.5 telephoto on both handsets. The X50 Pro gets an 8MP f/2.3 ultrawide and a 2MP /f2.4 black and white depth sensor, that are slightly different to the X2 Pro. Unsurprisingly, this setup takes good pictures in both daylight and with the night mode – night as well.

On the front, the X50 Pro gets two selfie cameras. A 32MP f/2.5 wide and 8MP f/2.2 ultrawide. These are arranged in a pill-shaped cutout on the left-hand side of the screen.

0 to 100% battery charge in 35 mins

There is a bigger battery in the X2 Pro, up 200 mAh to 4200. This comes with Realme’s new 65W SuperDart flash charge, which will go from 0 to 100% in an incredible 35 minutes. It also has a fast reacting under-screen fingerprint sensor and dual speakers, though sadly no headphone jack.

Shipping with Android 10 and Realme’s latest skin called realme UI .1.0. This promises to be much closer to stock Android and is a welcome upgrade to the previously used ColorOS.

Costing around £500, the X2 Pro is currently Realme’s most expensive handset. But even at that price is still good value for money when you compare it to other 5G phones around.
