Realme has introduced the Realme Narzo 50A, Narzo 50i back in September last year. The Realme Narzo 50, however, took until February 2022 to get a proper release. To those unaware, the Narzo series is composed of budget smartphones, that are usually placed below the numbered series in terms of specs. If the Realme 9 Pro and Pro+ are now playing with the premium mid-range segment, the Narzo series stands for those who want a brute mid-range device at an affordable price. Earlier this month, a device carrying Realme Narzo 50A Prime has been spotted in multiple certifications.
Today, all of sudden, Realme comes with a new variant for the 50 series dubbed Realme Narzo 50A Prime. Apparently, Realme learned one lesson or two from Samsung and its mouthful names of the past.
Realme Narzo 50A Prime alleged specifications
The Realme Narzo 50A Prime packs a 6.6-inch Full HD+ screen with 2,400 x 1,080 pixels. The device comes with a waterdrop notch for the 8 MP selfie snapper. The panel comes with a fairly thick bottom bezel. Interestingly, the rear of the handset comes with a kevlar-like texture. It has been a while since the last time we’ve seen smartphones playing with this kind of material. To recall, a Moto RAZR from the past came with the actual kevlar finish.
The back of the handset features a triple-camera setup with a primary 50 MP main camera. It’s joined by the depth and macro unit, and we assume these are just two regular 2 MP snappers. Realme didn’t disclose the details of these two units. However, the former has an f/2.8 aperture and the latter has an f/2.4 aperture. Since the company hasn’t disclosed the resolution, we can’t say that there shouldn’t be much to write about these sensors.
Under the hood, the Realme Narzo 50A carries the Unisoc T612 SoC with 4 GB of RAM. Hopefully, this chipset isn’t affected by the same flaw as its sibling. The handset runs Android 11-based Realme UI R edition straight out of the box. The phone also has two storage versions – 64 GB and 128 GB. However, it is worth noting that there is a micro SD card slot for further memory expansion. Thankfully, you won’t need to sacrifice the dual SIM functionality to extend the memory.
The Realme Narzo 50A Prime has 8.1 mm thickness and comes with a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. The device draws its powers from a 5,000 mAh battery which charges via a USB Type C port at up to 18 W.
