After plenty of hype and anticipation, the Realme X50 Pro Player Edition has officially launched! We’ve been hearing about this device non-stop for the better half of the month, and now that it’s finally here, we can take a closer look at just what’s so special about it.
The Realme X50 Pro Player Edition has the same design as the regular Realme X50 Pro 5G. There’s a bezel-less display, a curved glass back, and of course, no headphone jack. There’s also a single bottom-firing speaker at the bottom. The only colour available on this one is Gray, sadly.
On the inside the device packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC, with the same 6.44-inch AMOLED display @ 90 Hz, LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.0 storage. 5G connectivity is also intact, and there’s a 4,200mAh battery with 65W fast-charging onboard.
What’s new is Realme’s HyperBoost 3.0, a piece of software that allocates memory, chipset, and battery power to boost gaming performance. It allows the device to seamlessly switch between Wi-Fi, LTE or 5G depending on which offers the best speeds. As one would expect, it also hides notifications and turns off background apps while gaming.
Further emphasizing the gaming nature of the device is its cooling system, which features graphite sheets between the battery and the back panel of the device. This is to help the Realme X50 Pro Player Edition better dissipate the heat and provide optimal gaming.
The other big change we’re seeing is a downgrade to the cameras. The front facing setup is now a made up of a 16MP + 2MP depth sensor, and the rear setup has been brought down to a still decent 48MP main sensor and a 2MP macro sensor. It’s really still a decent setup though.
Pricing and availability of the Realme X50 Pro Player has yet to be announced, though we’re expecting to see more details about it come up soon. We’re expecting it to be priced a little lower than the Realme X50 Pro 5G at the very least. In the meantime, check out Giztop.com for all your Realme related news.
