Realme Narzo 50 5G and Narzo 50 Pro 5G have been officially confirmed to arrive in India on May 18. These youth-targeted handsets have been teased by the company for featuring the most powerful processors in its segment, which is expected to be the mid-range smartphone market. There is speculation that the Narzo 50 5G might be powered by a Dimensity 810 5G SoC, while the Narzo 50 Pro 5G has been confirmed to be powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 920 SoC.
Realme India will hold a digital launch event on May 18 at 12:30 PM IST, which will be available live on its official YouTube channel and Facebook page. The Realme Narzo 50 5G and Narzo 50 Pro 5G will be sold online on Amazon apart from the official Realme India website. The company has also listed the Narzo 50 Pro 5G 6GB + 128GB variant in Hyper Blue color on Amazon as part of the preparation for the Narzo 50 Pro 5G launch. As we mentioned earlier, this confirms that this handset would be powered by a MediaTek Dimensity 920 SoC. The listing also mentions that the handset would feature a 5-layer vapor chamber cooling system for better heat dissipation. According to Vivo, this smartphone received an AnTuTu benchmark score of 4,96,670 points. The page also teases that more information regarding the display would be revealed on May 16. This will be followed by details on its build, claimed to be the finest in the Narzo series, on May 17.
Recently, the Narzo 50 5G series list has been uploaded on the official website of Realme India, which can still be spotted on the web archive. That listing has since been taken down, but not before it already revealed the May 18 launch date. It also states that these smartphones will go on sale for the first time in India on May 24.
Realme has yet to reveal the price of the Narzo 50 5G series. A recent report suggested that the Narzo 50 5G might be priced above Rs. 14,000 and the Narzo 50 Pro 5G is expected to cost over Rs. 22,000 for its base variant. These handsets have also been designed to arrive in Black and Blue colors.
