Design and display
Realme Narzo 50i Prime has a glass front, plastic back and plastic frame build. Realme’s rear panel is marketed as a “Stage Light Design”. It also has a trendy flat-back design, which is more practical these days. Its rear panel also houses a single camera sensor, which is paired with an LED flash. Overall, it has a decent design and doesn’t feel like a budget phone.
It weighs around 182 grams and has a thickness of 8.5 mm. It is available in Dark Blue and Mint Green color options. Surprisingly, there is no fingerprint sensor on it.
Up front, there is a basic 6.50-inch IPS LCD display, which offers a resolution of 720*1,600 pixels and 270 PPI density. The display covers around 88.7 percent of the body allowing for a wide view of media. Likewise, it can also achieve a normal brightness of up to 400 nits.
The Realme Narzo 50i Prime comes with only basic camera settings. It offers an 8MP primary camera at the rear with auto-focus (AF) and HDR features. It is also capable of recording videos in 1080p resolution at 30fps. On the front is a 5MP sensor with an aperture of f/2.2 with HDR feature, while the video recording option on the front camera is limited to 720p resolution only.
Camera modes on it include Beauty, Filter, HDR, Panoramic View, Portrait, Time-Lapse, Expert and Super Night.
Performance and storage
Realme Narzo 50i Prime runs Realme UI Go based on Android 11. It should get at least two years of Android updates and up to three years of security updates. The phone is powered by Unisoc T612 (12nm) chipset while graphical duties are handled by Mali-G57. Well, Realme has marketed that this octa-core processor can handle even the most demanding games, but don’t get your hopes up.
It is currently available in two variants. The 3GB RAM variant has 32GB of internal storage while the 4GB variant has 64GB of internal storage. It also offers the much-needed dedicated SD card slot to expand storage up to 1TB.
Battery life, connectivity and more
The Realme Narzo 50i Prime has a typical 5,000-mAh non-removable battery backup. It does not support fast charging and only has a 10W charger. However, the ultra-saving mode on it can be really useful for users. When it is at very low power, users can enable this mode. With this mode enabled, it can provide up to 1.5 hours of WhatsApp chatting, up to 2.3 hours of voice calling and up to 4.1 hours of Spotify (as advertised).
It supports dual SIM with 4G network connection. Other connectivity options include Wifi 802.11, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS and radio. It uses a micro USB 2.0 cable for charging and wired pairing. For audio, it also has a single speaker and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Realme Narzo 50i Prime is priced at Rs 14,999 for the 3/32GB and Rs 15,999 for the 4/64GB variant.
