Scheduled for release on January 23, 2024, the Realme Note 50 has already piqued the interest of tech enthusiasts, thanks in part to its early reveal on Shopee.

The Realme Note 50 boasts a 6.74-inch LCD screen, offering an immersive viewing experience with its HD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate. This, combined with a screen-to-body ratio of 90.30% and a touch sampling rate of 180Hz, ensures a smooth and responsive user interface.
Under the hood, the device is powered by a Unisoc T612 chipset, supported by 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. For users needing more space, there’s a microSD card slot for storage expansion. This hardware configuration is complemented by the Realme UI T Edition, based on Android 13 Go, offering a user-friendly and efficient operating system.
Photography enthusiasts will be pleased with the Realme Note 50‘s camera capabilities. Initially reported to have a 13MP main camera and a 5MP front camera, there is a notable contradiction with a later report of a 50MP primary camera alongside a depth sensor. This disparity in information suggests a potential variation in models or a last-minute upgrade, adding an element of surprise to its launch.
The device also features a robust 5,000mAh battery with 10W charging, ensuring prolonged usage times. Additionally, the inclusion of a 3.5mm audio jack caters to users who prefer traditional wired headphones, and the IP54 water resistance rating provides an added layer of durability.
Set to be available in two color options, the Realme Note 50 is not just a smartphone; it’s a statement by Realme that high-end features and affordability can go hand-in-hand. As consumers eagerly await its arrival in Malaysia and potentially other markets, the Realme Note 50 stands poised to make a significant impact in the world of entry-level smartphones.
