The vivo X50 is a smartphone lineup that is all about mobile photography with custom sensors and unique design of the camera setup. Two phones are already selling in China – vivo X50, and vivo X50 Pro, while the vivo X50 Pro+ is expected to hit the shelves in a few days.
The first two are also scheduled to arrive outside China – they will hit India “soon”, and one leakster on Twitter says the date might be July 16.
The vivo X50 series already has a dedicated landing promo page on Flipkart, and the phone will sell on Amazon India as well. Claims are all three models will launch simultaneously with offer for the early adopters, free screen protectors, some bank cashback and a discount for the vivo TWS Neo earphones.
The vivo X50 Pro+ brings a 50 MP camera with Samsung’s ISOCELL GN1 1/1.3” sensor. There is also a periscope lens with up to 60x Hybrid Zoom, as well as a 13 MP portrait cam. The regular X50 Pro is intriguing on its own – it brings a 48MP Sony IMX598 camera with a unique gimbal-style stabilization.
The vivo X50 is mostly about the style – it is a big thin phone with 5G connectivity, AMOLED, and an affordable price tag.
The phones have starting prices of the equivalent of $700, $600, and $490, respectively. We have to wait a week to see if India will get the same prices, though.
