Realme X50 Pro - First phone with ISRO's NavIC support

Realme X50 Pro 5G will be the first phone to come with ISRO's NavIC support. The flagship device is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC, which is the company's high-end smartphone and tablet SoC flagship smartphone processor. However, as Qualcomm addressed its support for NavIC technology, it had only named the Snapdragon 720G, Snapdragon 662, and Snapdragon 460 SoC to have supported the technology and there was no mention of the Snapdragon 865 SoC having NavIC technology support. Qualcomm had made the announcement in October last year and it needs to be confirmed if ISRO's NavIC technology on the Realme X50 Pro is software-based or if there is a chip that has been equipped with the navigation technology from ISRO.
