Popular smartphone manufacturer Realme is all set to launch a 5G smartphone in India on February 24 next.

The company claimed that the smartphone  Realme X50 Pro 5G will be the first 5G smartphone of India .

In a tweet,  Realme CEO Madhav Seth announced that India will be getting its first 5G phone on at 2:30pm on February 24.

“India’s first 5G smartphone is here!Launching #realmeX50Pro at 2:30PM, 24th Feb. Excited? RT using #real5G and stand a chance to get invited for the launch,” Seth tweeted.

However, the launch of the 5G smartphone comes at a time when another technological giant Vivo is gearing up to launch its 5G smartphone  IQOO 3 5G in India on February 25.

Both the rival companies are claiming that their respective products will be the first to dominate the 5G smartphone market in India.

The new  Realme X50 Pro 5G will be powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 865 SoC processor.

It will also comprise of a 90 Hz display, 65 W charging capacity and a dual punch-hole setup.

However, India does not have a 5G network infrastructure, which makes the proposition meaningless for Realme and Vivo.

It may be mentioned that many smartphone manufacturers are coming up with efficient marketing techniques to shine big in the electronic market sector in India.

Technological giant Xiaomi recently implemented a price cut of Rs 1000 for all the Redmi Note 8 variants.

The 128GB storage is going for sale at Rs 15,999 whereas the top-end variant with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage will now sell for Rs 17,999

The phone with 6GB RAM and 64GB storage which was priced at Rs 14999 is now being sold for Rs 13999.
