Realme X50 Pro (review) will go on sale in India once again starting July 13th, the company has announced. Due to logistical issues, the Realme X50 Pro was unavailable for purchase in India for a while, but you can buy the flagship smartphone on Monday at 12pm IST on Flipkart and realme.com. Interestingly, Realme has increased the Realme X50 Pro prices in India for all variants by up to Rs 3,000, making it more expensive than before. The X50 Pro, to recall, was launched earlier this year as India’s first smartphone with the Snapdragon 865 SoC and 5G connectivity.

Realme X50 Pro price in India

Realme X50 Pro price in India now starts at Rs 39,999 for the 6GB RAM + 128GB storage variant, up from Rs 37,999. The 8GB + 128GB variant price has been increased to Rs 41,999 from Rs 39,999, while the 12GB RAM + 256GB option will cost Rs 47,999 instead of Rs 44,999.

The phone has a few competitors at the price point. It goes up against the likes of OnePlus 8 (review), which also touts the Snapdragon 865 SoC and 90Hz AMOLED display, but has triple rear cameras instead of quad cameras and a slower 30W fast charging support as opposed to 65W fast charging on the Realme phone. Then there is the iQOO 3 (review), which is a gaming-centric smartphone. It’s the most affordable Snapdragon 865 SoC-powered phone in India right now with a starting price of Rs 34,990. Though iQOO 3 is a worthy option going by specs sheet, it lacks a high screen refresh rate.

For those unaware, the Realme X50 Pro runs Android 10-based Realme UI out of the box. It is expected to be the first Realme smartphone to get updated to Android 11 in the future.

The handset rocks Snapdragon 865 SoC coupled with up to 12GB LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB storage onboard. It’s driven by a 4,200mAh battery with an impressive 65W SuperDart fast charging technology over USB Type-C port.

In optics, the Realme X5 Pro features quad rear cameras comprising main 64MP wide-angle lens, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle and macro camera, a 12MP telephoto lens with 20x zoom support, and a 2MP portrait camera. Up front, the phone gets a 32MP Sony IMX 616 main sensor and an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens housed in a pill-shaped cutout.
