The GeForce GTX 1050 Ti never had a true heir. For reasons unknown, the GeForce GTX 1650 Ti was only available in the mobile form factor.
1650 and 1650 Super want to know your location.

RTX on a 3050 sounds like a waste, similar to a 2060. The only ray of light on this is that people that didn't get the 2060 could experience the technology (visually, not performance wise) on the "cheap" side.

The "raytracing on the cheap" title needs to be taken with a cargo ship worth of salt in the current GPU market situation.

As for 4GB, it should be perfectly workable as long as it is backed by 4.0x16 for the fastest system RAM access possible. I doubt many people expect to play games at anywhere near Ultra on a 50-tier GPU and VRAM requirements go down drastically once you start turning down details. 4GB also makes them completely useless for ETH.
