Realme are hoping to expand their market share in the UK this year. The affordable brand which I have covered a lot in the past 6 months can sometimes be slow listing their products on Amazon UK, but that is all changing.
A few weeks ago they launched the Realme 6 and Realme 6i, which are both now available in the UK, with the Realme 6 being the star of the show from my reviews.
Now the brand is launching the Realme 6 Pro with which swaps out the chipset for the excellent Qualcomm Snapdragon 720 and including a telephoto zoom lens giving you premium like features at incredibly affordable prices.
The big news is the launch of the Realme X50 Pro which is their flagship device of the year, featuring the 5G Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. It is the cheapest phone on the market to feature this chipset while also offering a superior camera specification to the slightly more expensive OnePlus 8.
The two phones will launch via live stream on the Realme youtube channel at 10am BST 5th May 2020 which you can access here: https://youtu.be/I78GjiqihOA
UK prices have not been confirmed but the Realme X50 Pro starts at 669-Euros on Amazon Spain for the 8GB/256GB model which works out as £583. There is also supposed to be a 8GB/128GB model for 599-Euros, but Amazon don’t currently list that.
Currently there is no word on EU or UK prices for the Realme 6 Pro and it may struggle to stand out from the pack with only small price differences between the Realme linup:
- Realme 6 – 219-Euros or £219 from Amazon UK
- Realme X2 with SD370G – £299 with 8/128GB
- Realme 6 Pro – This will likely sit above the X2 due to its better display and zoom lens
- Realme X2 Pro is just 389-Euros for the base model or £419 for 8/128GB via Amazon UK
In my opinion, the best options for Realme would be:
- Realme 6 if you want something affordable
- Realme X2 Pro if you want flagship like specs at an incredible price
- Realme X50 Pro if you want 5G and the fastest chipset on the market
