This phone delivers 5G and a 120Hz display for less than $300
Not long ago, we reviewed the Realme X50 Pro. We said the device was pretty good, but its sub-par camera setup left much to be desired. Now, Realme has unveiled the X50 Pro 5Gâ€™s little sibling ? the Realme X50m 5G ? and though we doubt it will address the more premium variantâ€™s camera issues, youâ€™ll probably want to give it a look.
The Realme X50m touts several of the things that make the X50 Pro so good, namely 5G connectivity and a high-refresh rate display. Even though it comes with a slightly downgraded CPU in the form of the Snapdragon 765G, the handsetâ€™s 6.57-inch Full HD+ display supports up to 120Hz. For comparison, the X50 Pro tops out at 90Hz.

This is even more impressive considering the Realme X50mâ€™s incredibly low price, which starts at only 1,999 yuan (~$280). Thatâ€™s nearly half the price if its more premium ~$528 counterpart.
Other than that, the X50m features the Adreno 630 GPU, 6 or 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage, a 4,300mAh battery, 30W fast charging, Android 10, and a quad-camera setup. This rear-facing camera array touts a 48MP primary sensor, an 8MP ultra-wide sensor, and two 2MP sensors, one for macro and one for portrait shots.
All in all, for less than $300, the Realme X50m 5G packs one hell of a punch. Itâ€™s nearly impossible to get 5G and a 120Hz display at this price. The device goes on sale April 29, so if you are looking for a new budget-friendly handset, you need to give it a look then.
