Realme X50 will launch on January 7 2020.

After trickle-posting numerous teasers about their upcoming 5G phone, the X50, the company has now officially revealed when they’re lifting the curtains for the phone. The Chinese OEM took to Weibo to announce that the Realme X50 will launch on January 7, 2020.

The Realme X50 is powered by the Snapdragon 765 processor that was unveiled at the Snapdragon Tech Summit earlier this month. The Snapdragon 765 is a mid-range processor with an integrated 5G modem. The 5G modem supports both SA (standalone) and NSA (non-standalone) networks. The Snapdragon 765 CPU is paired with an Adreno 620 GPU that also debuted at the Tech Summit.

The company has also confirmed that the phone will come with a quad-camera setup. There’s a good chance that the camera setup will be headlined with a 64MP sensor, and will be similar to that found on the recently unveiled Realme X2 Pro or Realme X2. Dual-channel WiFi has also been confirmed for the Realme X50.

Like the recently-launched Realme X2, the Realme X50 is also teased to have support for the company’s VOOC 4.0 Flash Charge technology. This tech is said to juice up to 70% of the battery in 30 minutes while a full charge would take about just an hour. For effective heat management, the phone is also said to have a 5D heat dissipation system to offer complete coverage of all heating sources.

Rumors indicate that the phone will have a 6.44-inch FullHD+ AMOLED waterdrop-notch display with a refresh rate of 90Hz. The battery is expected to be rated at 4,500mAh and is also, for the first time for a Realme phone, expected to support wireless charging. Considering that Realme has already revealed its 10W wireless charging pad, it makes sense for the phone to have support for wireless charging.

Realme has already made public its plans to launch a 5G phone in India next year. While it’s not confirmed that it will be the Realme X50, there’s a good chance that this might be the phone Realme brings to India, probably under a different moniker. Although, for what it’s worth, India doesn’t offer any 5G services yet.
