Vivo has a history of introducing some cool features in a concept device first; and then replicating it into its regular, ready-to-launch smartphones. Its “APEX” lineup of concept phones have been doing so for the past couple of years. And just a couple of months ago, the Vivo APEX 2020 showcased some amazing innovations like an in-display selfie camera, a primary lens with gimbal-like stabilization, and more. Not every one of them will be ported anytime soon. But, Vivo has unveiled the new X50 series (X50, X50 Pro, and X50 Pro+) of smartphones with gimbal-like stabilization. Check out the specs, features, expected price in Nepal, and availability of Vivo X50 series (X50, X50 Pro, and X50 Pro Plus).

Vivo X50 Series Gimbal Stabilization Overview

A gimbal is basically a device which uses motors & other sensors to support a camera lens, and thus result in a smooth video recording. While most expensive smartphones come with OIS & EIS for video stabilization, in their current state, they simply cannot outperform a separate gimbal. So you bet your bottom dollar when we say this feature is absolutely going to revolutionize smartphone videography.

Vivo says that this lens has been inspired by a chameleon’s eyes. And that is reflected in the way it moves. It rotates inside the module and is handled by a robotic gimbal. This improves the stabilization angle by up to 200% compared to phones with OIS.

Vivo X50, X50 Pro Overview


The X50 and X50 Pro come with Sony IMX598, which is an improvement over IMX586. The former is a 48MP sensor with an aperture of f/1.6. It supports 4-in1 pixel-binning and has added filters. X50 Pro has a periscope telephoto lens that supports 5x optical zoom and 60x hybrid superzoom. It is replaced with a macro lens on the X50. The 8MP wide-angle camera on the X50 series has a Field of View of 120-degree. It can also take macro shots of objects as close as 2.5cm. The fourth camera is a 13MP portrait lens.

Vivo claims that the setup allows 39% better photosensitive property compared to the Vivo X30 series. It is because of the application of a new sensor along with the anti-shake property. Vivo has also utilized the AI noise reduction algorithm to make night shots clearer and less noisy. The feature doesn’t end here. The X50 series comes with a new feature such as 3D SoundTracking and Zoom, Motion AF tracking, Video Bokeh, Video Filters, Instant Filters, Photo Restoration, Passerby Removal, and Shadow Removal.

Design and Display

Both Vivo X50 and X50 Pro come with a 6.56-inch AMOLED screen. It has a circular cutout of 3.96mm that houses the front camera. Thanks to the punch-hole display and the 3D curved screen panel, it has a screen to body ratio of 92.6%. The X50 and X50 Pro also support a 90Hz refresh rate and a touch sampling rate of 180Hz. The brightness level peaks at 1300nit. Vivo claims that the E3 AMOLED on the X50 series reduces harmful rays by about 61%.

Performance and Memory

Both X50 and X50 Pro are powered by Snapdragon 765G. The chipset has an integrated 5G chipset that supports both SA and NSA 5G bands. For a stable connection, Vivo has included a 3D Antenna system that distributes the antenna among different parts of the smartphone. The two devices are available in two memory configurations – 8GB + 128GB and 8GB + 256GB.

Battery and Others

The only major difference between the X50 and X50 Pro lies in the battery capacity. The Pro model has a larger 4315mAh battery while the vanilla edition has a 4200mAh battery. Both the device supports Vivo’s 33W flash charge technology. On top of that, you get Vivo Energy Guardian that will keep your phone’s battery on the check. Other notable feature includes NFC support, Hi-Res Audio, and an under-display fingerprint sensor.

Performance and Memory

Vivo X50 Pro Plus is a flagship device within the X50 series. As with almost every flagship of 2020, it has Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor under the hood. You can choose between 8GB and 12GB of RAM. If you want the former, you have to choose between 128GB and 256GB of internal storage. The 12GB variant doesn’t provide such privilege and is available only with 256GB storage.


Another difference is in the camera setup. The X50 Pro Plus comes with the new 50MP Samsung ISOCELL GN1 image sensor that the company just announced. With this, Vivo is claiming the phone will have exceptional low-light performance. This sensor has a large 1/1.3″ optical format with Tetracell technology, which is actually bigger than the one on Samsung’s Galaxy S20 Ultra. It also has a 32MP portrait lens, 13MP wide-angle lens, and 13MP periscope telephoto lens.


X50 Pro Plus’s battery is slightly bigger at 4350mah, but Vivo has coupled it with faster 44W flash charging technology.
