vivo has announced the X50 series which brings forth devices designed for professional mobile photography experience. vivo X50 comes with a range of excellent features in a mid-range budget. The device is provided with a bezel-less design with an on-screen fingerprint unlock feature. It comes with impressive internal specifications as well as massive storage capacity. Moreover, it comes with a fast-charging option, by which the battery can be refilled in a shorter duration. However, it lacks wireless charging features and doesn’t have any screen protection which can be counted as a drawback.
“X50 series is a professional photography flagship smartphone for consumers to record and share the best moments of their lives in a simple way,” said Spark Ni, Senior Vice President of vivo. “With stable-shooting capabilities, outstanding lenses and sensors, and an overall advanced camera system, the X50 series flagship devices allow users to capture life stories with professional quality. These are the first X series devices to be launched globally and we are excited to share the best of our innovative technology and design concepts with people around the world.”
The standard X50 sees a major change in chipset compared to the Chinese model, swapping out the 5G-enabled Snapdragon 765G in favor of the Snapdragon 730 processor. Otherwise, you’re still getting extras like a 90Hz refresh rate, and a 4,200mAh battery with 33W charging.
Meanwhile, the X50 Pro retains the Snapdragon 765G processor as well as a 48MP gimbal camera system for better videography and low-light shots. The Pro variant also delivers a 5x periscope camera compared to the standard model’s 2x telephoto zoom. Other notable features include a 90Hz refresh rate and a 4,315mAh battery with 33W charging.
With cutting-edge stabilization, night mode, zoom, and portrait technologies, X50 series smartphones enable users to capture stable and high-quality images and videos in a wide range of scenarios, making every shot a masterpiece. The design of Vivo’s X50 series draws from natural elements and futuristic aesthetics, aiming to complement the active lifestyles of consumers.

All three phones have a 32-megapixel hole-punch selfie camera, dual-mode 5G, and Wi-Fi 6. They all run Vivo’s Funtouch OS 10, based on Android 10.
