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.
