Realme X50 5G with Snapdragon 765G and 120Hz display and Realme Buds Q launch in Europe next week
Realme is among the fastest-growing smartphone brands worldwide. Born in India after spinning off from OPPO, the company reportedly holds the seventh position in the list of top smartphone brands globally. The company is poised to expand further in markets such as Europe and has been launching devices with the same vigor as it does in India. In 2020, Realme has already launched the mid-rangers Realme 6, 6i, 6 Pro, and 6s globally alongside its flagships Realme X50 Pro 5G and the Realme X3 SuperZoom. Now, it is vying to launch another phone – the Realme X50 5G – in the European market along with Realme Buds Q TWS earphones.
Realme Italy took to Twitter to announce that the Realme X50 5G will be launching in the country on July 8th ay 10:30 AM local time. Notably, this is the first 5G-enabled mid-range device from the company launching outside of China. As you’d expect, the Realme X50 5G is a stripped-down version of the Realme X50 Pro (review) that runs on the Snapdragon 865 mobile platform. It was, however, unveiled before the Pro and has been limited to China since its launch in the first week of January 2020.

The Realme X50 5G is powered by Snapdragon 765G chipset with RAM variants going up to 12GB. Other highlights of the phone include a 120Hz refresh rate display, a 64MP quad-camera setup on the back along with dual cameras on the front. It supports N1 and N41 5G NR frequency bands for SA and N78 and N79 for NSA 5G networks as well as supports NFC.
In China, the Realme X50 5G starts at around $360 for the 8GB/128GB variant and goes up approximately to $450 for the Master Edition with 12GB/256GB configuration. With the OnePlus Nord about the launch around the same time, it will be interesting to see how Realme positions its sub-premium smartphone for the Italian market. Realme Europe is also teasing the launch of a 5G phone so we can expect it to be this device only.
Along with the 5G smartphone, the company will also launch its in-ear TWS earbuds, the Realme Buds Q, in Italy. These are affordable TWS earphones from the company that cost about $27 in India and could be priced around the $30 mark in Europe as well.
Meanwhile, here are the specifications of the Chinese variant of the phone:
