The Vivo X50 5G has, as announced at the launch event, officially gone on sale in China. The device has a slew of features, mostly camera-centric such as the 60x hybrid SuperZoom, starry sky shooting, super night mode and many others.
The Vivo X50 5G is the basic variant of the device, and as such it features the lowest specs of the bunch, though it’s no slouch by any means. There the Snapdragon 765G chipset, paired with 8GB of RAM and either 128GB or 256GB of internal storage.
It features the 6.56-inch AMOLED 1080p+ display of its more expensive Pro brethren, but it’s a normal flat panel instead of a curved one. The battery here is also slightly smaller than the others at 4,200 mAh, but it features the same 33W fast charging as the Vivo X50 Pro.
As for the quad camera setup on the back, we’ve got a Sony IMX598 48MP main camera, along with a Samsung S5K3L6 13MP camera, an OmniVision OV08A10 8MP telephoto lens, and an 8MP Hynix Hi-846 ultra-wide sensor. On the front, we have a 32MP Samsung GD1 camera. It unfortunately misses out on the gimbal stabilization action.
The standard Vivo X50 is, as expected, the lowest priced variant of the trio. The 8GB/128GB model will set you back at 3,498 yuan ($490), while the 8GB/256GB goes for 3,898 yuan ($550). Sales for the device begin on June 6, and it comes in Black, Pink and Blue colour options.
