The launch is still pushing through on schedule
Following the cancellation of this year’s MWC, brands like OPPO have decided to delay the launch of their upcoming devices to a later date. Other brands like Realme, however, have decided to push through as scheduled, but going for an online-only launch—similar to what Xiaomi did when it unveiled the Mi 10 series in China.
You can read Realme’s statement below:
Since the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, realme has been concerning about the effects and working on alternatives of all possible situations, including having planned our event undertaken by our European team based in Spain without any staff from China.
Keeping in light with the impact of the virus and the cancellation of MWC 2020, realme has decided to cancel the participation at MWC Barcelona 2020, accordingly. Our first 5G flagship smartphone realme X50 Pro 5G, originally planned to debut at the MWC, is going to be launched online globally in Madrid on February 24th. Our Vice President of realme and Chief Executive Officer of realme India, Mr. Madhav Sheth will join the launch and reveal our future AIoT plans.
Thanks for your understanding and support. We will announce the updated arrangements of realme X50 Pro 5G online launch event soon. Please stay tuned.
As far as specs is concerned, Realme confirmed that the Realme X50 Pro 5G will have a Snapdragon 865 processor, up to 12GB RAM, up to 256GB internal storage, Android 10-based RealmeUI, and NFC.
