We have been seeing rumors and leaks for the upcoming Realme Narzo 50 series since the last month. After a long wait, the devices are finally set to come in this Friday, September 24. The company will use the same event to disclose new smart devices and wearables. But as far as the low-end smartphone segment is concerned, the Realme Narzo 50A and Narzo 50i will steal the show. The two devices come to succeed in the Realme Narzo 30 series released earlier this year. Note that Realme is skipping the “40” due to the number four association with bad luck in China. Today, the Realme Narzo 40A had some of its specifications detailed.
Realme is doing its best to build the hype for the upcoming Realme Narzo 50A and Narzo 50i. The company wants to keep anticipation in light of the imminent release. The company shared a set of images today to confirm some of the device’s specifications. The posters are available straight from the device’s landing page.
Realme Narzo 50A key features revealed
The Realme Narzo 50A will run with MediaTek’s Helio G85 SoC. 2020 4G chipset brings two ARM Cortex-A75 cores clocked at up to 2.0 GHz plus six power-efficient ARM Cortex-A55 cores clocked at up to 1.8 GHz. For graphical tasks, this chip packs the very same Mali-G52 MC2 found on the Helio G80, with a higher clock, however. In addition to the cost-effective “gaming” chipset, the phone draws its powers from a 6,000 mAh battery. That’s a huge cell and this is still something that we can only see among low-end and mid-range smartphones. The device will charge with an 18 W charging via its USB C port.
It also has a triple-camera setup with a 50 MP primary shooter leading the way. Since it’s a triple-camera setup, we’re expecting the other two modules to be a macro and depth-sensing snapper. An ultrawide module would be preferred, but we don’t think it’s coming.
Unfortunately, Realme didn’t disclose official details about the display, but rumors say it will have a 6.5-inch diagonal. Moreover, this will be an HD+ LCD panel with a 60 Hz refresh rate. Unlike the newer Helio G88, the G85 can’t go to a 90 Hz rate. A new teaser suggests that the Realme Narzo 30i will have a punch-hole cutout in the middle. At least in my memories, this placement is a first for a Realme smartphone as the company has been focusing on side-aligned punch holes. The Realme Narzo 30A, on the other, will have an ol’good waterdrop notch for its 8 MP selfie camera.
The device will come with Android 11 OS with Realme UI 2.0 running on top. Besides the 6,000 mAh capacity, the device will also have a Super Battery Saving feature that restricts usage when you reach 5% of the remaining energy. With it enabled, the device will still be capable of offering 120 minutes of WhatsApp, 144 minutes of calling, or 2.6 days of standby.
