Meanwhile, the phone was also spotted on China's regulatory body TENAA's website, indicating its key specifications. Additionally, a notable tipster has also tipped the alleged pricing and camera details of the upcoming Realme phone. From the alleged specifications, it is speculated that the Realme X50 Pro Player Edition will come with downgraded cameras compared to the Realme X50 Pro 5G.
Last week, Realme via its Weibo account confirmed that the Reame X50 Pro Player Edition will come with quad rear cameras - similar to the Realme X50 Pro 5G that was launched in India in February. Through a new post on the Chinese micro-blogging site today, Realme has confirmed the that the phone will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC and will pack LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 storage. Moreover, a separate post revealed that the phone will come with 5G support and Wi-Fi 6.
Previously, it was also reported that the Realme X50 Pro Player Edition will carry the model number RMX2072. A Realme phone with the same model number has been listed on TENAA website, therefore, it is speculated that the aforementioned smartphone on the site is Realme X50 Pro Player Edition. According to the TENAA website, the Realme phone will be offered in Red, Dark Black, and Silver White colour options. It was reported that the phone will feature a 6.44-inch AMOLED display that has Full HD+ resolution of 1,080x2,400 pixels. Moreover, the Realme X50 Pro Player Edition is said to come in three RAM variants namely, 6GB RAM, 8GB RAM, and 12GB RAM. Further, the phone is said to be offered in 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB onboard storage options. It is speculated that the upcoming Realme phone will run Android 10.
The TENAA website also hinted that the Realme X50 Pro Player Edition will carry an in-display fingerprint sensor along with gravity sensor, distance sensor, and light sensor. Lastly, it was highlighted that the phone will measure 159.0×74.2×8.9mm and weigh 209 grams, adding that there's a 2,055mAh battery as well. The battery capacity listed on TENAA is likely wrong.
A notable tipster, Digital Chat Station (translated) further indicated that the quad rear camera setup will include a 48-megapixel main camera, instead of a 64-megapixel primary camera as seen on Realme X50 Pro 5G. The tipster claimed that there will also be an 8-megapixel secondary camera along with two more 2-megapixel shooters. The same rear camera specifications were highlighted in TENAA listing. It was added that the phone will come with a dual selfie camera setup that will include a 16-megapixel camera and a 2-megapixel camera. Additionally, the tipster claims that Realme X50 Pro Player Edition will pack a 4,200mAh battery, which is more likely to be accurate than the 2,055mAh listed on TENAA.
Lastly, the tipster claims that the Realme X50 Pro Player Edition will cost CNY 3,299 (roughly Rs. 32,000) for the 8GB RAM + 128GB storage variant. As mentioned, Realme has only confirmed a handful number of specifications for the Realme X50 Pro Player Edition, therefore, the details highlighted on TENAA and by the tipster should be taken with a pinch of salt.
