The device gets Realme UI
Realme X50 5G is the first smartphone in the company’s lineup to launch with Android 10-based ColorOS 7 which is Realme UI out-of-the-box. The UI still looks very skinned and minimalistic but the company has redesigned the icons and added its own touches to distinguish it from Color OS 7.
Realme X50 Battery with VOOC 4.0
The device packs a 4200mAh battery with 30W VOOC 4.0 Flash Charge support It claims to charge the phone up to 70 per cent in just 30 minutes. The phones also come with USB Type-C port, and it supports Dolby Atmos, as well as Hi-Res audio but there’s no 3.5mm headphone jack. It’s quite disappointing to see this move by Realme which might be a deal-breaker for some users but considering its range of wireless audio products we don’t think it will be a problem for a lot of users. The phone also has support for NFC.
