Different “Professional” bits embrace higher cameras, Dolby Atmos stereo audio system, a beefed-up in-display fingerprint reader, an improved vapor-cooling system and 35-minute, 65W “SuperDart” flash cost (it is mainly a rebranded model of Oppo’s “SuperVOOC 2.zero”). These are all packaged right into a low-profile “Moss Inexperienced” or “Rust Pink” physique, that includes a easy frosted glass again which exhibits a refined metallic shine at sure angles.
Oddly sufficient, Realme sort of went the wrong way with the X50 Professional’s 1080p show. Reasonably than retaining the X50’s 6.57-inch 120Hz LCD (from JDI and BOE), the Professional mannequin has to make do with a smaller, slower 6.44-inch 90Hz Samsung AMOLED panel. Whereas some could also be disillusioned by the dearth of a 120Hz AMOLED panel, this was most probably a price-conscious choice made by the model. Not that it is a unhealthy factor, thoughts; 90Hz AMOLED is already a noticeable improve for most individuals, and we appreciated it on each the OnePlus 7 Professional and the Oppo Reno Ace.
The X50 Professional maxes out at 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM with 256GB of UFS three.zero storage. It comes with a Four,200mAh battery together with the standard NFC (Google Pay pleasant), dual-SIM tray and dual-mic noise cancellation. However nope, no headphone jack right here.
Very like the X50, the X50 Professional has a set of quad cameras on the again and twin cameras for selfies, however with a barely totally different set of sensors and optics. The rear group is led by a 64-megapixel Samsung GW1 chip with a f/1.Eight aperture for tremendous high-resolution pictures, or for Four-in-1 pixel-binning to spice up sensitivity in low-light situations. Under that’s an Eight-megapixel ultra-wide digicam, which additionally handles macro pictures at right down to 3cm. The highest digicam is a 12-megapixel telephoto shooter, which provides as much as 5x optical hybrid zoom (or a gimmicky 20x hybrid zoom, when you’re actually determined). Final however not least, there’s a 2-megapixel f/2.Four monochromatic digicam on the backside which assists the principle digicam’s portrait mode.
One of many essential images options that Realme is pitching for the X50 collection is “Nightscape three.zero,” which comes with a “Tripod Mode” that does tremendous lengthy publicity of as much as 50 seconds for some fascinating evening pictures, as long as you possibly can mount your cellphone onto a tripod. “Nightscape three.zero” additionally has an “Extremely Nightscape Mode,” which primarily boosts the digicam’s sensitivity to take vivid photographs even when illuminance is down to simply 1 Lux. As for video, it is simply the standard [email protected] recording with two ranges of video stabilization, and there is additionally real-time bokeh impact video if you wish to strive one thing totally different.
On the opposite facet of the cellphone, you get a 32-megapixel f/2.5 essential selfie digicam together with an Eight-megapixel f/2.2 ultra-wide shooter, each powered by Sony sensors and are stuffed into the display screen’s top-left punch-hole. Once more, there’s real-time bokeh impact video recording right here, however customers will probably be extra curious about taking slow-motion selfies at [email protected] (simply do not name them “slofies”).
The Realme X50 Professional runs on Android 10 with Realme UI — primarily a near-stock Android expertise with some goodies ported over from Oppo’s ColorOS, corresponding to gesture navigation and sensible assistant options. And naturally, the software program runs even smoother on the 90Hz show. One cool function right here is Twin Mode Music Share, which helps you to play music by way of wired (USB) earphones and Bluetooth earphones concurrently, and you’ll even choose up calls with the earphones you are sporting whereas letting your buddy proceed listening to music with the opposite pair.
There isn’t any phrase on US availability simply but, as Realme is focusing on Europe for now, with Spain being the launch market in April. The Realme X50 Professional will begin from 599 euros (about $650) for the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage model, and topping at 749 euros (about $810) with 12GB of RAM + 256GB storage. These are cheaper than even a few of the current 4G flagships, however apparently the China costs might be even decrease when the cellphone launches there regionally.
