Realme has one-upped iQOO in its quest (no pun intended) to launch the first 5G smartphone in India. The manufacturer has announced that the Realme X50 Pro 5G will launch in New Delhi on 24th February. The date is a day earlier than iQOO’s own launch event for the iQOO 3 set for February 25 in China.
The Realme X50 Pro 5G launch will begin at 2:30 PM IST. The phone will also be announced on the same day in Madrid, Spain at 10:00 AM CET which is also 2:30 PM in India. Based on this, it will be a simultaneous launch in both cities.
