X50 Series New Addition -Vivo X50 Pro

Published

on

The Vivo X50 Pro is a part of the Vivo X series which serves the higher end of the market. The Vivo X50 Pro is the first smartphone in India to sport a Gimbal camera system. This system helps stabilize video and helps click better photos by stabilizing the primary camera. The Vivo X50 Pro sports a quad-camera system with the primary camera being a 48-megapixel sensor with a gimbal to stabilize it.

Vivo X50 Pro Price in India

Vivo X50 Pro smartphone price in India is likely to be Rs 45,690.

Vivo X50 Pro specifications: Future ready

One of the first things that caught my attention on the spec sheet of the Vivo X50 Pro was the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC. The Vivo X50 Pro was the first smartphone to launch in India with this processor, which we later saw in the lower-priced OnePlus Nord. It is a 5G-ready SoC that delivers very good performance if the Nord is any indication. There is only one configuration of the Vivo X50 Pro in India, which has 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. You don’t have the option to expand storage but 256GB should be enough for anyone. Vivo has used the UFS 2.1 flash storage format, which is slower than the UFS 3.0 storage found in the OnePlus 8 and Xiaomi Mi 10 5G.

The phone is powered by Octa-core (2.4 GHz, Single core, Kryo 475 + 2.2 GHz, Single core, Kryo 475 + 1.8 GHz, Hexa Core, Kryo 475) processor. It runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G Chipset. It has 8 GB RAM and 128 GB internal storage.

Vivo X50 Pro smartphone has an AMOLED display. It measures 158.4 mm x 72.8 mm x 8 mm and weighs 181.5 grams. The screen has a resolution of 1080 x 2376 pixels and 398 ppi pixel density. It has an aspect ratio of 19.8:9 and a screen-to-body ratio of 90.1 %. On the camera front, the buyers get a 32 MP f/2.4 Primary Camera and on the rear, there’s a 48+8+8+13 MP camera with features like Digital Zoom, Auto Flash, Face detection, Touch to focus. It is backed by a 4315 mAh battery. Connectivity features in the smartphone include WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, Volte, NFC, and more.

The sides of the frame are curved to help the phone sit well in the hand, the top and the bottom of the Vivo X50 Pro are surprisingly flat. It has a USB Type-C port, SIM tray, primary microphone, and speaker at the bottom. The primary microphone is too close to the SIM tray, so it could be mistaken for the ejector mechanism. On the top, there’s a secondary microphone along with inscriptions that say “5G” and “Professional Photography”.

The Vivo X50 Pro is available in a single color called Alpha Grey. You will notice a slight shift in color when light bounces off the back panel. It has a matte, frosted finish which helps hide fingerprints and smudges quite well. The rear camera module will definitely grab eyeballs, as the primary camera lens is one of the biggest I have ever seen on a smartphone in recent times. The entire camera module protrudes slightly, so I would recommend that you use the case provided in the box.

Vivo X50 Pro performance: 5G ready

The Vivo X50 Pro offered very good performance and I never noticed any lag or stutter while using it. The UI felt smooth, especially when I enabled the 90Hz refresh rate for the display. I did not have to wait for long to load heavy apps, and I was able to multitask between different apps very easily. The fingerprint scanner was quick to unlock the smartphone, and face recognition never required more than one attempt to work. The display produced crisp details and I enjoyed watching videos on the Vivo X50 Pro. The bottom-firing speaker got quite loud but the stereo output was missed.

The phone also posted some impressive numbers in benchmarks. In AnTuTu 8, it managed 2,63,410 points. It also scored 624 and 1899 points in Geekbench’s single-core and multi-core tests respectively. It isn’t the most powerful smartphone in this price range; the OnePlus 8 packs in a more powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC, which managed 5,78,289 in AnTuTu 8 and 912 and 3362 points in Geekbench. As for the GFXBench graphics benchmark, the Vivo X50 Pro managed 18fps and 32fps in the Car Chase and Manhattan 3.1 tests, respectively.

Battery life on the Vivo X50 Pro was very good, and it lasted beyond a day, without needing to be charged. I did notice that using the gimbal camera system drained the battery slightly faster. In our HD video loop test, the Vivo X50 Pro lasted for 15 hours and 40 minutes, which is fairly good. The supplied 22W Flash Charge 2.0 charger is quick to charge the device, getting it to 50 percent in 30 minutes and 91 percent in an hour.

Vivo X50 Pro cameras: Revolutionary or just a gimmick?

The Vivo X50 Pro has a quad-camera setup at the back like most smartphones these days, but the highlight feature is the gimbal stabilization system for the 48-megapixel primary camera, which can reduce shakes while shooting photos and video. The sensor is also physically bigger than most other sensors used in phones in recent times. This gimbal system allows the camera sensor to move and rotate slightly, compensating for accidental shakes.

The artificial intelligence (AI) on the Vivo X50 Pro is quick to recognize a scene and set the camera up accordingly. It also offers recommendations for which sensor to use, based on the scene.

The camera is the highlight of the Vivo X50 Pro, it is well equipped. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC that is 5G enabled. The Vivo X50 Pro has a 6.56-inch full-HD+ AMOLED display with a hole-punch at the top left corner. The panel also has a higher 90Hz refresh rate. It has 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. It houses a 4,315mAh battery that is capable of delivering all-day battery life.
