Unfortunately, as we well know, the MWC 2020 event in Barcelona was canceled due to the Coronovirus epidemic that put the whole world on alert and which in these hours makes our beautiful country remain in suspense. The presentation events that should have been held during the technological event have been postponed, many with dates to be set while others have begun to peep out, like the one held yesterday by Realme that presented its X50 Pro flagship.
We talked about him in this article, but during the occasion, Realme's management has not lost any way of telling us about its plans for the future. In fact, the Chinese company has announced that it will concentrate its efforts on 5G, a technology that in 2020 will be the guiding thread for many smartphones that will be presented during the year.
Realme announces 5 new 5G smartphones also for Italy
Realme country manager, Emilio Alvarez, from the stage where the new Realme X50 Pro is presented has announced that at least 5 smartphone models will take shape in 2020 and will boast the new 5G connectivity technology, thus making the spread of the brand in the rest of the globe. In fact, the company's intention is to export these new models to other countries beyond China and among these we find, Greece, India, the Czech Republic, the United Kingdom, France, Poland, Spain, the Germany and especially Italy. The countries mentioned are actually many more, but what interests us brand enthusiasts is that Realme has very specific aims towards the market of our country.
It is inevitable that with the emergence of the new 5G technology, the production of 4G smartphones will cease gradually. Currently the devices of the Asian brand equipped with the new connectivity are only two, namely the Realme X50 and X50 Pro, both with Snapdragon 865 hardware base. What is frightening is perhaps the prices at which the new smartphones will be proposed, even if the solutions offered by MediaTek , with the Dimensity 1000 and 800 SoCs, will help the spread of 5G also in the entry level segments of the market.
If on the one hand the technological innovation that Realme will adopt can only please us, however, we cannot fail to take into consideration that 5G in Italy compared to the rest of the world is proceeding slowly. In fact, analyzing the sector reports, Italy's delay compared to other European markets, such as the English or German ones, is rather evident. It is estimated that by 2023 52,5 million users will be connected to the Internet via mobile technology, of which less than half will have access to 5G while the value of 4G connections should almost double, which will go from 29% (data for 2018) to 48,9%.
