Realme is trying to pioneer 5G technology in India even before the network has been setup. The company revealed on Monday that they will be launching the new Realme X50 Pro 5G on March 24. In a tweet by Realme CEO, Madhav Seth, the company announced that India will be getting its first 5G phone on March 24 at 2:30pm.
The availability of 5G network is still a myth in India but the company is promoting the Realme X50 Pro as future ready with all the hardware in place. The race to become the first 5G smartphone in India has now taken a turn. Vivo’s IQOO 3 5G is also bidding to be the first 5G smartphone in the country. IQOO 3 5G will be launching on February 25 but we are still not sure which brand will be able to deliver the respective devices to customers first.
Unlike previous spectrum upgrades, establishing a good 5G coverage will involve huge investments in infrastructure from the telecom companies. Since major network providers like Airtel and Vodafone Idea are reeling under massive AGR dues, the possibility of a robust 5G network still seems to be in the distant future.
The new Realme device will be positioned as a flagship smartphone. The company has already revealed major features of the Realme X50 Pro 5G. The device will be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 865 SoC. The display is a 90Hz AMOLED panel and the smartphone will also get 65W charging capacity.
The tweet by the company also gave us sneak peek at the new device and it seems that it will feature a dual camera in a punch-hole.
