In the wake of the cancellation of MWC, Realme has had to postpone their debut at the biggest mobile show in the world, but they’ve pushed ahead a global event in Madrid to announce the X50 Pro 5G and their new line of Realme AIoT devices.
Realme is looking to be at the crest of the burgeoning AIoT device and 5G smartphone wave in cooperation with their hardware partners like Qualcomm.
The announcement of the X50 Pro 5G tonight follows on from the announcement of the Realme X50 5G which was their first 5G phone, with these two phones planned as the flagship of the companies 5G journey.
