    Realme is already in a race to the race to launch a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865-powered smartphone in the first half of the year. Ahead of an official launch, a new Realme smartphone has been spotted on AnTuTu benchmarking website. According to rumours, this phone is likely to launch as Realme X50 Pro and come with SD 865 SoC.
