Realme Narzo 50 Pro 5G Design and Build
Starting with the design, the Realme Narzo 50 Pro 5G features a gradient Kevlar texture on the back panel with a subtle narzo branding on the bottom left. The gradient finish on the back does not attract fingerprints and smudges.
The phone comes in two colour options: Hyper Black and Hyper Blue. I have the Hyper Black variant with me and it looks and feels really good in my hands.

I have to say that the camera unit on the back protrudes quite a bit and the phone wobbles when placed on a flat surface. The phone feels quite light in the hands and perfect for one-hand use.
The power button is on the right side and its placement was perfect for my hands. The left side has volume keys and a sim tray slot. The bottom has a Type-C port, primary speaker grille and our beloved 3.5mm audio jack.
Realme Narzo 50 Pro 5G Display
Coming to the front, the Realme Narzo 50 Pro 5G features a 6.4″ Super AMOLED display with a 90Hz refresh rate. The display offers an immersive experience with vivid and rich colours. The display is bright enough for outdoor use with a peak brightness of 1000 nits.
The refresh rate can be set to the standard 60Hz or the high 90Hz from the settings. The phone has a touch sampling rate of 360Hz which makes the display quite responsive.
The display is protected by the Corning Gorilla Glass 5. You will find an in-display fingerprint scanner on the front featuring a heart rate sensor. I tried out the heart rate feature and found it pretty cool to see it on a phone.
Realme Narzo 50 Pro 5G Camera
For the cameras, Realme Narzo 50 Pro 5G has a triple camera setup. It includes a 64MP primary camera, 8MP ultra-wide lens and a standard macro lens. On the front, you will see a 16MP selfie camera.
The photos taken with the primary camera have a lot of details and the colours come out really well. The pictures are very clear and the colour saturation is also good. In addition, the camera app has tons of filters and features to play around with.
The ultrawide lens captured more view but the details were somewhat lost on the way. The images had decent details in the middle but got blurry around the edges.
The macro shots were not any good as well. The selfies taken were also very detailed and the skin tones looked quite natural.
Realme Narzo 50 Pro 5G Performance
Now let’s talk about the heart of the Realme Narzo 50 Pro 5G, the MediaTek Dimensity 920 chipset, which is based on the 6nm technology. The phone runs on Android 12 with Realme UI 3.0 skin. Paired with 8GB RAM, this phone can handle almost anything you throw at it.
You can further expand the 8GB RAM up to 5GB using the Dynamic RAM expansion feature. This doesn’t really help a lot but you will be able to run a few more apps in the background. The 90Hz display adds to the overall performance while scrolling and gaming.
Talking about gaming, we tried a couple of games including COD: mobile, Asphalt 9, and BGMI. All the games ran well in medium-high settings. We will talk about the detailed gaming performance in the full review.
I didn’t notice the phone getting hot even after an hour of gaming, thanks to the Vapor Chamber cooling system.
Realme Narzo 50 Pro 5G Battery and Charging
The Realme Narzo 50 Pro 5G packs a beefy 5000mAh battery that easily lasts a day of heavy use. A casual user can expect the phoner to survive two days with light gaming. There are battery saving features in the settings to further extend the battery life.
The Narzo 50 Pro bundles with a 33W fast charger in the box which can charge the phone up to 50 per cent in just 31 minutes. The phone can fully charge from 0 to 100 per cent in about 70 minutes which is not bad at all.
