Mobile Photography, Redefined
To reduce shaking, the main camera of X50 Pro is equipped with an industry-leading Gimbal Camera System, allowing users to take clear photos and videos while in motion, even at night. Modelled after a full-size professional gimbal, X50 Pro’s built-in miniature gimbal module moves in the opposite direction of shaking motions, providing increased stability for the main camera. This system also widens the rotation angle and anti-shake area compared to popular stabilization methods, resulting in super clear images. The Gimbal Radar, an on-screen animated ball that reflects the gimbal’s movement, lets users know when the frame is stable. vivo’s motion-deblur algorithm, customized sensors, and continuous focus tracking further enhance image and video clarity.
X50 series consists of true photography flagship smartphones. X50 Pro has a versatile camera setup with one 32MP front camera and four cameras on the rear (48MP Main, 8MP Super Wide-Angle, 13MP Professional Portrait, and 8MP 5x Telescopic). X50 Pro’s 5x Telescopic lens also supports 60x Hyper Zoom, leading to photos of breathtaking detail.
X50 and X50 Pro feature Super Night Mode and Astro Mode, which together enable users to capture stunning photographs of both city and country scenes at night, while 120 degrees Super Wide-Angle (108 degrees after distortion correction) and Super Macro functions help create professional-quality photos in a wide range of scenarios. vivo’s Portrait Mode, powered by a 4-layer masking algorithm, allows users to separate the subject from the background and apply separate effects for a more refined result.
Sleek Performance and Design
In addition to its professional photography capabilities, the X50 series delivers overall flagship performance. The series supports 5G connectivity depending on local market conditions, allowing users to stay online with super fast speeds and low latency. Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor, X50 Pro provides fast computing speed and smooth multitasking capabilities. The series features a high screen refresh rate of 90Hz, displaying crisp images, movies, and games without smears or blurs.
Reflecting vivo’s design-driven innovation, X50 series smartphones are built with flexible screens, which are slimmer, lighter, and more durable than traditional screens. X50 is one of the slimmest 5G phones ever. HDR 10+ technology delivers a bright and vivid display, and AG Matte Glass offers a soft and delicate touch. The Gimbal Camera System is also designed in the shape of an eye, serving as a unique design element on the rear of X50 Pro.
The X50 series’ color palette aims to provide positive messaging and serve as a channel for users’ personal expression. X50 Pro comes in "Alpha Grey", which represents the silver blue in the deep sky, while X50 comes in "Glaze Black", with a signature gradient effect, or the fluid and light "Frost Blue".
