Announcement. Realme Narzo 50 5G - mid-range with simple cameras, copy of Realme V23

Realme has announced a couple of smartphones today.
Realme Narzo 50 5G
and
Realme Narzo 50 Pro 5G.The devices are completely different, I don’t see the point in comparing them with each other. So there will be separate news about each. This one is about Realme Narzo 50 5G. You can read about the second smartphone here.

Realme Narzo 50 5G looks a lot like its ownRealme Narzo 50 namesake announced in February. Screens, battery… In fact, even the chipsets are very close, although they are made according to different technical processes and one of them, obviously, does not support 5G networks. But the sets of cameras are fundamentally different, so I still can’t consider these two smartphones close relatives.

Where the Realme Narzo 50 5G looks like two peas in a pod is the Realme V23 destined for China (available on AliExpress). Only the “Chinese” has much more memory.


Realme V23

About the characteristics.

MediaTek Dimensity 810 chipset, made using 6 nm process technology. The power is average, 300-350 thousand points in AnTuTu. If you're lucky, even a little more.

4 or 6 GB of RAM, 64 or 128 GB of permanent. (Realme V23 has 8 or 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage - feel the difference).

The screen has a diagonal of 6.6″ (105 cm²).The resolution is standard high, 1080×2408 (400 ppi). Refresh rate up to 90 Hz. Realme V23 has a slightly different screen, 6.58″. But this is just a “rounding error”, marketers indulge.

The battery is classic, 5000 mAh. Charging medium-speed, 33 watts.

Save money on cameras. Everything is simple here. Frontal resolution 8 MP and rear duet 48 + 2 MP.

Other.The fingerprint scanner is combined with the power button. There is Type-C and a fifth Wi-Fi. The NFC module will be present in the European version of Realme Narzo 50 5G. The Indian version of Narzo, as well as Realme V23, lacks NFC support.

And about money.

In India, the Realme Narzo 50 5G will cost ₹15,999 (₽13,100, $207), ₹16,999 (₽14,000, $220) and ₹17,999 (₽14,800, $233) for the 4+64, 4+128, and 6+128GB versions, respectively.

The European price is known only for the older version – €259.99 (₽17300, $272). (In Malaysia, it will also cost RM899 (₽13,300, $209)).

For comparison, Realme V23 can now be bought on AliExpress for $252.52 (₽17900) (8+256 GB).
