First impressions of the vivo X50 Pro: shaking

In the spring we wrote about vivo X30 Pro, which was never officially released in Russia, but sorry — this is quite an interesting smartphone with original combination of qualities: sudden hardware platform Samsung Exynos 980, 60 x digital zoom (and optical fivefold), miniature frontalka. In the plan vivo X50 Pro was even more curious — and besides, he has officially presented in Russia.

The smartphone is vivo used one of the innovations showcased in the concept 2020 the APEX, let frontali hidden under the screen panel, and camera with variable focal length, we have not waited, but advanced system of stabilization by the summer went into the series. The company says about three-fold advantage of stabilization with special suspension to conventional optical — this allows you to obtain higher quality and smooth video, as well as to increase the duration of exposure when shooting at night. Will check it in on the final sample of the smartphone, here we will talk about more generalized things.

In addition to the steep stabilization main camera vivo X50 Pro has also received a very high aperture — ƒ/1,6. In theory, it is the combination of these two features with the system Bayer Quad (here used a 48-megapixel sensor) gives a very special opportunity when shooting in night mode. In practice, we’ll look at later, but one thing is immediately clear to the naked eye: the lens is very large. Block the rear camera (or rather, the back cameras) vivo X50 Pro is due to this unusual: the prevailing main module, two normal (portrait sensor of 13 megapixels and a focal length of 50 mm and wide-angle sensor 8 megapixels and a focal length of 16 mm) and located slightly below mine periscope (8 MP, 135 mm), which provides a five-fold optical zoom, in the manner of vivo X30 Pro.


As you can see, in addition to potentially very cool at night the main camera, there is also an expanded viewing angle and from a couple of zoom-ins — a regular, not Quad Bayer, as in X30 Pro, but in the aggregate quality it all looks very impressive. Before us another “cameraphone” flagship out of limits, in the manner of Xiaomi Mi Note 10.

The overall design vivo X50 Pro, with the exception of the unusually organized unit rear camera, at first glance does not carry original elements, and yet leaves a very nice and fresh impression. It is difficult to say what is this freshness in an unusually slim for a modern smartphone package (8 mm), whether in the shimmering finish of the upper face, is provided with the addition of engraving, but it turned out great.


Two colour options, both start from the shades of blue — lighter, as in our case, and darker. The front and back surfaces covered with curved glass, the sides are made of aluminum.


The gadget is no mini-Jack is already familiar even outside the flagships, here vivo does not make discoveries. In the rest of the design is the usual: the USB Type-C and mono speaker on the bottom edge, two hardware keys on the right.

The front camera is located in the corner of the bezel and the lens is as small as in X30 Pro, but with a larger rim. Not to notice the camera in the space of the display anymore, but I will not say that it somehow interferes. As a minimum, the status bar was placed in full. It is, incidentally, organized the original “sparse” and the clock in the center, not the right side.

The screen on the X50 Pro vivo is quite relevant: 6.56 inch, Super AMOLED, 2376 × 1080 pixels. Permission is not marginal, but sufficient, the matrix feels quality, without excesses, color range and high PWM. With the perception of information in a Sunny day on the street no problems. Detailed tests with a colorimeter later.

The hardware platform Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G, which is clearly destined to become one of the most common market in 2020. It is a system-on-chip the middle class, but with 5G modem on Board and a very decent performance, we met her earlier in OPPO Reno3 Pro. The platform consists of eight cores Kryo 475: one redesigned upscale Cortex-A76 2.4 GHz, one productive core ARM Cortex-A76 2.2 GHz and six energy-efficient cores ARM Cortex-A55 1.8 GHz. Graphics processor — Adreno 620, the clock frequency of which is not disclosed, but in G it must be enhanced compared to the usual Snapdragon 765. Workflow — 7 nm. Its power is enough to run any modern games and fast OS.

Memory in vivo X50 Pro enough: 8 GB of the RAM LPDDR4X and 128 or 256 GB of flash UFS 2.1. Apparently, in Russia, the company relies on version 8/256 GB, at least she got to us in hand before the announcement. It is logical slot for a memory card is not provided here, and the smartphone, sharpened by shooting photos and videos, it is better to be drive larger.

The battery is about the same as in predecessor — 4315 mAh. And despite the increase in display size, we can expect that autonomy will be fine. At least, charged vivo X50 Pro quickly if you do it with a complete charge capacity of 33 watts. Wireless charging is not supported.

First impressions of the vivo X50 Pro is strictly positive — the company has released a second dedicated camera-phone of the year, but now is available officially and, most importantly, with a unique offer in the form of special stabilizer on the main camera, which probably brings the smartphone one of the leaders in the night scenes. Be sure to check with the full testing of the final sample.

The release date of the vivo X50 Pro on sale price and will be added into the material after the official announcement.
