Vivo has already launched the Vivo X50 series in China and may hit the Indian markets at the beginning of July. One of the main selling points of the series is that the Vivo X50 Pro phone comes with a gimbal optical image stabilization technology for its main camera. A new poster by the Chinese firm has released a coming soon text suggests that the X50 series may come the upcoming month.
The Vivo X50 series is likely to arrive in multiple markets including Malaysia, Indonesia, India, Singapore, and Thailand. The series has three devices refer as Vivo X50, Vivo X50 Pro, and Vivo X50 Pro plus. It remains to be seen whether all these phones make to the market mention above. The Vivo X50 series features a Full HD+ display with a super AMOLED screen and a punch-hole design. The X50 has a flat display panel, whereas the other two upper-tier models have curved edges. The X50 and X50 pro support 90Hz refresh rate whereas the pro model comes with 120Hz refresh rate support.
The snapdragon 765G Soc with up to 8GB of LPDDR4x RAM powers the X50 and X50 pro models. The device has huge internal storage up to 256GB that is enough to store all images, videos, and files of yours. The phone is powered by Snapdragon 865 SoC powers the X50 Pro plus with up to 12GB of RAM and 256G of native storage. The Vivo X50 trio has 4,315mAh batteries. The X50 and X50 pro support fast charging of 33W whereas the X50 pro plus supports 44W fast charging. The trio phone series is loaded with FunTouch OS 10 on the top of Android 10 OS. The three phones feature 32-megapixel front-facing cameras.
The Vivo X50 has a 48MP camera with optical image stabilization technology as its primary camera, a 13MP portrait camera lens, an 8MP ultra-wide camera lens, and a 5MP macro camera lens camera system. The Vivo X50 Pro also features 4 camera system module with a 48MP with gimbal OIS, an 8MP periscope telephoto lens with OIS, a 13MP portrait camera lens, and an 8MP ultra-wide camera lens.

Vivo iQOO Z1 5G is the latest gaming phone to feature the MediaTek flagship chipset for the first time. The company has already launched two gaming phones this year - iQOO 3 and iQOO Neo 3. Although snapdragon chops dominate the android phone in recent years, the MTK density series is in a better position for the high-performing needs. Let's talk about the display first. The phone has 1080MP LCD at a 144Hz refresh rate. The Z1 has scored over 520,000 points in the Antutu benchmark, but this isn't as good as 597,000 points of the Neo 3 running the Snapdragon 865. We see the GPU performance of the MTK chipset is much close to the Snapdragon chipset.
The gaming experience is not very different from what you can have on the Snapdragon since there are not many games that require extremely high CPU or GPU performance from Android phones. Most games support up to 60 fps frame rate. There are a few games that can lock the frame rate under 30fps like Asphalt 9. The game got a z1 shutter sometimes, but it still reaches at 29fps on an average. With games that don't lock the frame rate, Z1 could offer a super smooth gaming experience with its 144Hz display. If you continue to play games for a long time, the frame rate may drop down to 90fps to prevent any heating issues.
The phone comes with a 44W charger that takes only 23 min to charge up to 50% of the power and an hour to fully charge the phone. The one-hour PUBG mobile game consumed around 16% of the power. That means you can continue to play for another 5 hours of the game. The phone isn't perfect and has a performance gap between Snapdragon 865 and the Dimensity 1000 plus. However, with most android games, the gap is really hard to perceive due to frame rate limits. Z1 cost around $300 and is one of the cheapest gaming phones this year.
Vivo Apex 2020, a concept phone by Vivo was supposed to be unveiled at the event, but because the event was canceled due to coronavirus, it was doomed to be a footnote in the history despite its amazing features. Vivo intends to create more distinct devices than anyone else is creating reight now. The company was teasing the launch on the X50 series on Weibo, highlighting its main selling feature - the Gimbal camera system on the X50 Pro in particular.
Vivo X50 series has three phones -Vivo X50, X50 Pro, and X50 Pro+. All of these feature 6.56" FHD AMOLED display with 90Hz display refresh rate except Vivo X50 Pro+ that has 120Hz refresh rate. The camera module of the X50 Pro includes a periscope telephoto camera (like the Galaxy S20 Ultra, Huawei P40 Pro, and the OPPO Find X2 Pro), the other two are normal camera lenses (most likely an ultra-wide-angle camera and a normal telephoto), and a much larger module that is the primary camera. The lens rotates as the module is manipulated by a robotic gimbal. The key benefit here is image stabilization.
Vivo is also adding a Gimbal Radar with the Camera UI which will be depicting as a small animated ball to reflect the gimbal's movement. This will let the users know when the frame is being stable. Other techniques are being used as well, including motion-deblur algorithms and continuous focus tracking to enhance the final result and clear video. The camera system also includes super night mode and Astro mode, which enable users to captures night time photography of the streets, city, or scenes, etc.
Vivo X50 series smartphone uses Android 10 out of the box with Funtouch OS 10.5 on the top. The front camera is 32MP for all three phones, whereas the rear camera starts from 48MP to 50MP for Vivo X50/Pro and X50 Pro+ respectively. The phone has launched in China but we don't know when it is going to be available in India or other markets.
