Vivo has actually formally revealed its very first flagship phones of 2020, the X50 series. As formerly teased, the essential feature is the main camera’s heavy-duty stabilization system, which Vivo variously compares to expert gimbals and chameleons’ eyes. It formerly showed up on Vivo’s Peak 2020 concept phone, but the company wasn’t able to reveal it off personally due to the COVID-19 pandemic; now it’ll be shipping on commercial devices.
The highest-end design is the X50 Pro , which uses Samsung’s new 50- megapixel 1/1.3- inch ISOCELL GN1 sensor for the primary camera. The gimbal system uses an on-screen “radar” that illustrates the lens’ motion and suggests when a shot will be steady. The X50 Pro and X50 Pro likewise consist of periscope telephoto cams, though the X50 does not.
Vivo hasn’t yet announced full spec sheets for the phones, but the X50 Pro has a Snapdragon 865 processor with the requisite X55 5G modem. Vivo says that the regular X50 is the slimmest 5G phone ever at 7.
That’s pretty much all Vivo is stating about the X50 lineup in the meantime, for some factor, so we’ll have to wait until we have the device( s) in hand to inform you more– including the cost and the release date. The company does have a track record of debuting new hardware functions that end up getting widely adopted somewhere else, from in-display finger print sensing units to pop-up selfie cams, so we’re certainly interested to try out the gimbal stablization for ourselves.
