Realme X50m Launched In China – 5G On The Cheap!

After Realme‘s rather lackluster unveiling of the X50 Pro, they’re back to dabble into the budget phone market once again with the Realme X50m. The phone touts to be on one of the cheapest 5G handsets available in the global market thanks to the use of Qualcomm‘s mid-range processor – the Snapdragon 765G.

The Realme X50m

The Specs

  • Snapdragon 765G – Supports 5G modem
  • 120 Hz IPS LCD Panel (6.57″)
  • Base variant – 6GB RAM and 128 GB Internal storage
  • 48MP (Primary) + 16MP (Ultra-wide) + 2MP (Macro) + 2MP (Depth) Rear Camera System
  • 4300 mAH Battery with 30W VOOC

The Realme X50m is a somewhat iterative update to the sans-5G modem wielding X50. Asian markets are quite 5G handsets these days despite having no real infrastructure in place (and no it doesn’t transmit COVID-19!). Realme is probably looking to capitalize on this weirdly niche market with the X50m. With prices starting at 1,999 yuan (around 22,000 INR) the Realme X50M seems to tick all the right boxes even without its 5G capabilities.

With companies like Xiaomi investing in quirky design signatures for their Redmi lineup, Realme’s offerings look rather bland in comparison.

The Quad-Camera array.

Realme is probably one of the only companies to offer 30W VOOC charging on its mid-range devices, giving their phones a 70% percent top-up in less than half an hour. That combined with their copiously large battery capacities (4300 mAH) gives the X50 range of phones an unprecedented advantage over their competitors.

Plain-Jane design language.

However, if Realme truly wants to set themselves apart in the budget space, investing in a less bland design language (did I mention repetitive as well) would be the way to go! With companies like Xiaomi investing in quirky design signatures for their Redmi lineup, Realme’s offerings look rather bland in comparison. As a young company Realme is doing a lot of things right with proper software support in the form of RealmeOS and good hardware optimization in their handsets. What they have been lacking thus far is the “oomph” factor. A factor that draws the young target audience towards their phones.
