Over the past few days, Vivo has been publishing a couple of teasers to build up the hype for its upcoming Vivo X50 Pro. The referred device may go official on June 1 and apart from the flagship specifications, it will debut with groundbreaking camera solutions. Among them, we have the so-called gimbal-like image and video stabilization system. According to Vivo, the feature is called “micro cloud” and offers a much better solution over traditional OIS systems.
The company explained the system that features a double-ball suspension allowing the module to pivot the image sensor by +/-3º, three times the angle of a traditional system. Moreover, the system is powered by two voice coils with a ribbon cable connecting the sensor to the smartphone. It is folded two times to make it flexible enough. Interestingly enough, the module is bigger than the current solutions found in smartphones. It takes up to 363mm2 board space and is 4,5mm thick. Of course, Vivo had worked work with engineers to reduce the size as much as possible. So, the final result is what technology can achieve right now.
The micro-cloud system will be a massive improvement over standard OIS
There is a promo video comparing the micro cloud system to a typical optical image stabilization system. Interestingly enough, the gimbal system hardware will work alongside EIS to produce more stable videos.
As usual, Vivo also shared a new promo video that once again has a focus in the micro cloud stabilization system.
The new report also compares the overall improvement brought by the Vivo X50 Pro in comparison to the X30 Pro. According to it, the new smartphone users a special color filter that ensures 39% more light. Moreover, the advanced image stabilization systems allow the camera to capture a whopping 220% more light. Based on this, it’s safe to say that the new smartphone will offer one of the best cameras for video recording, but how about the images? According to the teaser below, the X50 Pro surpasses an unnamed handset with regular OIS.
The new smartphone will go official on June 1. It’s unclear right now if more variants will be revealed in the same event. However, we’re also expecting a vanilla Vivo X50 and X50 Lite. Below you can check the company’s full infographic giving all the details about the Vivo X50 Pro.
