We recently reviewed a pair of Realme phones that put the company’s name under the spotlight. The Realme GT Master Edition and its more premium Explorer sibling are head-turners, a minimum of their “Travel Suitcase” vegan leather rears. However, realms upcoming mid-range phone will probably take the cake in terms of unorthodox design, with a dual-tone back and an odd fingerprint sensor placement, which will cause you to wonder what Realme’s designers thought once they conceptualized the Realme Narzo 50A.
Given its mediocre specs and limited market availability, it’s no surprise that Realme‘s Narzo line of smartphones didn’t hit the headlines. Even the Narzo 30A earlier this year probably didn’t make a blip with its dual-tone design that appeared to borrow some cues from the first Google Pixel. As if trying to repair that, Realme is seemingly stirring things up a touch with the Narzo 50A, though it’s going to achieve notoriety rather than fame for it.
The Realme Narzo 50A shown in renders from 91mobiles and @OnLeaks still bears a dual-tone design on its back. However, the second tone runs vertically down from the massive, square camera bump and is as wide as that structure. We’ve seen some phones adopting a vertical stripe down one side of the phone, but this takes that aesthetic to the acute.
Even stranger is that the placement of the fingerprint sensor that’s actually inside the camera bump. Technically speaking, it seems to truly get on an equivalent vertical level because of the Narzo 30A’s fingerprint scanner. It is, however, touch off to at least one side and being a part of an equivalent structure because the cameras could end in some accidental fingerprint smudges on the camera lenses when trying to unlock the phone.
Details about this odd Realme phone are still slim at the instant, though there’s talk about an 8MP front camera and a 12.5MP main sensor. The Realme Narzo 50A might follow its predecessor’s path with a MediaTek Helio chipset and an outsized battery that would increase the quirky-looking phone’s appeal.
