Chinese smartphone brand Realme have announced a super fast charging tech for their upcoming X50 Pro 5G smartphone on Twitter. This could have been a normal announcement, but then Realme made this announcement a fun affair.
They were responding to a Tweet from Realme’s chief marketing officer Francis Wang, Madhav Sheth, Realme’s CEO where he said the X50 supports ‘65W and not 50W charging’. Now, this is clearly a dig at Xiaomi, as they recently launched the Mi 10 with 50W charging.
Both these companies have been quite vocal about their rivalry on social media lately. In January, Xiaomi global VP and India MD Manu Kumar Jain as well as POCO’s general manager C Manmohan branded Realme a copy-cat brand.
Madhav took to Twitter:
‘Not 50W, but 65W. Introducing DART Charge Technology! – No heating while charging – Enjoy Gaming while Charging – Enhanced Battery Life See you in Madrid on 24th Feb’
Realme was all set to introduce the the X50 Pro 5G at Mobile World Congress 2020 at Barcelona in Spain, but then the convention called off owing to concerns regarding the outbreak of Wuhan Coronavirus.
Now, it is expected that the company will launch the phone at an event in Madrid on February 24.
This phone could come with specifications which include 90Hz super amoled display with a punch hole cutout to accommodate the front facing camera system. As per the images, the smartphone will also have a Snapdragon 865 chip with 5G support.
There are few reports which suggest that it will have 12GB of RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage.
