While some reports had referred to the phone as the Realme Race and assumed it was supposed to be the continuation of Oppo's Ace series, Xi Qu clarified that 'Race' was just a codename for the device. He also noted that the phone will signify the launch of a whole new lineup of phones by the brand.
The folks at GizmoChina, meanwhile, have discovered a new profile on the company's Weibo page for a Koi phone, complete with images of the iconic fish making up the outlines of an 8. The description also references '888', so it's likely that the Race may officially launch under the Koi moniker.

At the moment, there's no word from Realme on exactly when the phone will be available, though it's expected to launch in either January or February.
Though almost a year old, Realme's X50 Pro 5G is still one of the values you can get for your money. A vibrant 90Hz display, a Snapdragon 865, up to 12 GB of RAM, and a massive battery with 65W fast charging allow this phone to stay toe-to-toe with even the best from Samsung and Xiaomi.
