We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: 2020 was chaos. It messed with our lives—travel and self-development plans included. But if there’s one thing that helped us power through this year, it would be our smartphones. We used our phones to attend classes or work from home, communicate with loved ones we couldn’t visit for obvious reasons, spazz over our fave K-pop groups, play mobile games, and rant over our frustrations on social media.
Our phones are sooo overworked this year that we half expect them to act up and crash on crunch time. This only means they have reached their limit and it’s time to let them rest. But where do we find a new, good quality phone that won’t hurt our wallet?
realme X50 Pro 5G
Thank heavens for realme, honestly. The local tech brand recently launched its 5G-ready smartphone called the realme X50 Pro 5G. It has a 90Hz super AMOLED display, 64-megapixel main quad camera, 32-megapixel front camera, internal storage for up to 256 GB, and a five-dimensional vapor cooling system to avoid overheating despite heavy use.
We can avail of the phone through the Smart Signature Plan M for P1,899 per month with a one-time cash-out of P6,900. “The new realme X50 Pro 5G boosts our line-up of Smart 5G-certified devices under our Smart Signature Plans, enabling our customers to unlock the many exciting possibilities of 5G,” said Richard Matthew Dimagiba, VP for Smart Postpaid Marketing.
Even better news: Cosplay royalty, gamer and content creator Alodia Gosiengfiao recommends this phone to gamers and non-gamers alike as it allows a smooth and competitive user experience.
The brand also launched the following devices alongside realme X50 Pro 5G:
realme Buds Air Pro
These earbuds from realme are equipped with the new and customized S1 high-performance noise cancellation chip. They guarantee noise cancellation effect while consuming low power. They also have a 10mm Bass Boost Driver and an advanced Dynamic Bass Boost (DBB) that enhances the bass of any audio.
realme Buds Air Pro also offers a 25-hour total playback for a continuous music listening, gaming, calling and watching experience.
realme Watch S
realme Watch S can help us prioritize our health. It is water-resistant, can last 15 days on standby, and has a Goodix sensor that supports 24-hour uninterrupted and real-time heart rate monitoring. It also supports 16 kinds of fitness modes and health functions such as step monitoring, sedentary reminder, sleep monitoring, hydration reminder and meditation relaxing.
Plus, this smartwatch can monitor all our app notifs and show some corresponding support in the display of calls, SMS and third-party app messages.
