Qualcomm has announced not one but three 5G-capable mobile platforms at its annual technology summit. The Snapdragon 865 chip is the successor to the 855, which is used by many of today’s flagship devices. The Snapdragon 765 and 765G (the “G” stands for gaming), on the other hand, will power midrange smartphones.

Companies like OPPO, Xiaomi, Meizu, and Nokia are already confirmed to use the said mobile platforms for their upcoming handsets. But which brand will do it first?

Realme claims that it will be the first to launch phones powered by Snapdragon 865 and 765G. It made the announcement on Chinese social media platform Weibo.

Could one of the devices the brand is referring to be the Realme X50, which we already know is its first 5G phone? It has been rumored to get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 735G processor, but who knows? The rumor mill might have gotten it wrong.

In case you didn’t know, the X50 supposedly features four rear cameras, one of which is a 60-megapixel sensor from Sony paired with 8-megapixel ultra-wide, 2-megapixel macro, and 2-megapixel depth sensors.

Thirty-two-megapixel and 8-megapixel front cameras are said to be housed in a pill-shaped cutout on the upper-left side of the 6.44-inch AMOLED screen with a 90Hz refresh rate.

The Realme X50 also allegedly features a 4,500mAh battery that supports Super VOOC 4.0 Flash Charge technology, up to 8GB of RAM, and as much as 256GB of storage.

The model is expected to launch this December. Considering 5G is not ubiquitous in the Philippines yet, we’re not sure if the X50 is coming here immediately — or at all.
