Vivo X50 Pro
Vivo X50 Pro is the brand's flagship offering in India with a 6.59" FHD+ curved AMOLED display with a fingerprint sensor tucked underneath. The display is curved towards the edges and refreshes at 90 times per second for a much smoother experience. Internally, the smartphone is powered Snapdragon 765G processor with an integrated 5G support, and the Adreno 620 GPU takes care of the graphics performance.
Vivo X50 Pro's major USP lies in the camera department, and the smartphone boasts a quad-camera setup. The primary shooter is a 48 MP regular sensor with f/1.6 aperture and has a gimble styled OIS feature for much smoother and stabilized shots. The secondary camera is an 8 MP ultra-wide lens with 120 degrees FOV. The third camera is an 8 MP periscope lens with f/3.4 aperture and supports 5X optical zoom and 60X hybrid zoom, and the final shooter is 13 MP portrait lens. The tiny punch hole at the front holds the 32 MP front face facing snapper.
Vivo X50 draws its power from a 4315 mAh battery and supports 33W fast charging via the type C port. The smartphone runs on Android 10 with Funtouch UI on top of it. Vivo X50 is available in the sole Alpha Grey color option, and it is priced at Rs.49,999 for the 8GB Ram + 256GB Storage configuration.
Vivo X50 is the toned-down version of its bigger brother, X50 Pro. The smartphone retains the same display characteristics from its elder sibling, but the curved panel is replaced with a flatter one. Internally, the smartphone is also downgraded to Snapdragon 730 processor and losses out on 5G support. In the camera department, X50 sports a similar 48 MP sensor, but the gimble OIS feature is reserved only for the Pro variant.
