Realme has introduced the Narzo 50 carrying a couple of appealing specs that would appeal to performance junkies.
The Realme Narzo 50 boasts a really fast and smooth 120Hz refresh rate. It’s adaptive, too, as it automatically switches to 90Hz, 60Hz, 50Hz, 48Hz, or 30Hz depending on the task on hand for better efficiency.
It then uses a traditional IPS panel with a 180Hz touch sampling rate for better responsiveness. The screen is also slightly larger than everyone else at 6.6-inches.
For a cleaner look, we have the punch-hole on the top left for the 16-megapixel selfie camera. While on the back, there’s a square island with two circles on a 2×2 layout. It houses the triple camera setup led by a sharp 50-megapixel main camera and the LED flash.
Like a lot of its competition, the Narzo 50 is powered by the latest gaming-centric Helio G96 processor from MediaTek.
You can pair it with up to 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. For heavy multitaskers, there’s the dynamic RAM feature that can expand the memory by up to 11GB.
Another highlight feature is the fast 33W wired charging for its 5,000mAh battery.
If you haven’t noticed, the Narzo 50 is essentially the same as the Realme 8i, albeit with faster charging. Sadly, it still ships with Android 11 instead of Android 12.
The Realme Narzo 50 has a starting price of INR12,999 (around Php8,900) for the 4GB/64GB, while the 6GB/128GB model is at INR15,499 (around Php15,600). It will be available in India starting March 3, while release details in the Philippines are yet to be known.
