As expected, Realme is launching the Realme Narzo 50A Prime in India. This is a super-budget variant for the Realme Narzo 50 series that does not have the most aggressive price. Not a surprise, after all, smartphones have become costlier recently, and there is global inflation going forward. Anyway, let’s focus on the Narzo 50A Prime. Today, customers in India that need a decent device for web browsing, lightweight social media navigation, and messaging apps, will have a decent option in the Narzo 50A Prime. The device further establishes Realme’s partnership with Unisoc.
Realme Narzo 50A Prime specifications
The Realme Narzo 50A Prime flaunts a 6.6-inch IPS LCD screen with a Full HD+ resolution of 2,400 x 1,080 pixels. The phone also has a tiny waterdrop notch that houses the front-facing snapper. The panel is a common LCD IPS screen with a 20:9 aspect ratio. It’s a surprise to see Full HD+ resolution here, but the refresh rate is capped at 60 Hz.
Moving around to the back, the phone packs a triple-camera setup. There is a 50 MP main camera snapper. It’s aided by a 2 MP macro camera and a 2 MP portrait sensor. Unfortunately, the two additional sensors are here just to make numbers. For selfies and video calls, there is an 8 MP front-facing snapper.
