To provide users with a better 5G experience, this edition claims to automatically perceive the surrounding signal environment and switch between 4G to 5G. Moreover, adjustments allows strategic allocation of bandwidth and battery, with claims it improves battery life and may reduce power consumption by 30%.
It also supports the new Wi-Fi 6 standard for better performance in user-intensive scenarios, with further transmission distance and higher transmission rate. This release allows both 5G and dual Wi-Fi to be connected simultaneously, further improving network speed and stability.
realme claims the new Qualcomm processor sees an increased of 25% in performance of both the CPU and GPU are increased by 25%, and has an AI processing chip which is twice as fast than the previous generation. It is one of the smartphones firstly featured LPDDR5 DRAM, with the speed increased by 29% and the power consumption reduced by 20%, in comparison with LPDDR4X.
The use of UFS 3.0+Turbo Write+HPB enhanced the speed by 80% and lowers the power consumption by 20%. realme X50 Pro 5G offers three variants of 8GB + 128GB, 8GB + 256GB and 12GB + 256GB.
According to Qualcomm EMEA SVP Enrico Salvatori, the collaboration between the two companies represents a milestone smartphones in the EU market.
