Earlier this year, an online report surfaced that claimed Xiaomi is likely to be the first smartphone maker to make use of India's own navigation technology called NavIC. The claim was officially confirmed by Manu Kumar Jain, MD of Xiaomi India, about a couple of days ago but now, Realme has revealed that it has already beaten the Chinese tech unicorn to the claim.
Madhav Sheth, CEO of Realme, has now confirmed that Realme X50 Pro is the world's first smartphone with NavIC support. He offered the confirmation while responding to a question asked by one of the fans. The official listing of the phone on Realme's website mentions "NavIC" under the Navigation tech specs section. It is listed along with other traditionally used navigation systems like GPS, AGPS, Glonass, and Beidou.
Yes, our ultimate flagship, #realmeX50Pro features #NavIC & even our upcoming phone will feature it as well.— Madhav 5G (@MadhavSheth1) February 27, 2020
So World's first, World's second, coming in a row, all for India.
Plan to talk more on 5th March. See you there with 1500 #realme fans. https://t.co/SXwcu1vYyI
He further added that not only the first but Realme will also unveil the world's second NavIC supported smartphone. The next Realme launch event is scheduled for March 5th where it will launch Realme 6 series smartphones. It is unknown whether both Realme 6 and Realme 6 Pro will feature the support or only one. Sheth said he will talk about the NavIC tech in detail at the launch event.
