Just as expected, the Vivo X50 Pro has finally gone on sale over in China, meaning we’ll now get a taste of just what exactly the gimbal stabilization on the cameras have to offer. Vivo have been drumming up a huge amount of interest in the device, so we hope it lives up.
The Vivo X50 Pro isn’t your typical ‘pro’ device in that it doesn’t feature a flagship SoC. It comes running a Snapdragon 765G, paired with 8GB of RAM and options of 128GB and 256GB of internal storage. We’ve also got a curved 6.56-inch AMOLED display with a 1080p+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate.

The quad camera setup on the back is almost the same as the Vivo X50’s, but it features a gimbal style stabilization system that extends the rotation angle and anti-shake area, and an 8MP periscope zoom camera that provides a 60x hybrid zoom called Hyper Zoom.
We’ve got the same AK4377a DAC inside, which is excellent to see in a high-end 2020 smartphone. The Vivo X50 Pro begins at 4,298 yuan ($600) for the 8GB/128GB model, while the the 8GB/256GB costs 4,698 yuan ($660).
