After long days moved by teasers and speculations, Realme finally took the wraps off its Realme X50 Pro with 5G today in Madrid, Spain. It’s the first 5G smartphone from the company aimed at Global markets. The first device was the vanilla Realme X50, however, it was exclusive to the Chinese market. Now that the company started its Global campaign, the country manager Emilio Alvarez shared a bit more about Realme plans. According to him, the company is planning to introduce at least 5 more smartphones this year with support for 5G networks. It’s part of a greater plan to develop and build a 5G ecosystem.
Realme executive revealed the strategy will be delivering 5G devices in more price segments. That’s how the company plans to not only expand its 5G offer but also make it more popular among all customers. Realme is very optimistic about the 5G rollout speeds and believe there will be demand in lower market segments. Some smartphones with 5G will land in Spain, Italy, Germany, France, Poland, Czechia, UK, Greece, India, Thailand, Singapore, and more. To make things more interesting, Realme wants to cease introducing 4G devices in China. Therefore, the company will only launch 5G phones as part of an “All in 5G” strategy.
Realme’s 5G smartphones – The Realme X50 and X50 Pro are powered by Snapdragon 765G and 865 respectively. With the plans of debuting more 5G smartphones, we believe that the company will soon adopt the Dimensity 800 and Dimensity 1000 SoCs. These chipsets have been revealed by MediaTek as the chipmaker solution for the 5G era. The two Dimensity SoCs are cheaper than its Snapdragon counterparts. For that reason, they’re strong candidates for the mid and low-end segments.
