In 2019, almost all smartphone makers have been focusing on the gaming capabilities of their phones. This year, the focus has been moved on the camera capabilities. We mean, if you want to boast of your smartphone, it should not only sport a top-end camera but also come with a number of innovations. In this sense, the VIVO X50 series handsets have no reason to worry about a thing. They are considered to be among the best camera-phones. Today, the X50 series models went on pre-order.
The VIVO X50 smartphone’s 8GB+128GB variant costs 3498 yuan ($492), and the 8GB+256GB version is available at 3898 yuan ($548). The VIVO X50 Pro’s 8GB+128GB model comes at 4298 yuan ($604), and the 8GB+256GB version sells for 4698 yuan ($661).
The X50 features a 48-megapixel main camera + 13-megapixel portrait + 8-megapixel wide-angle + 5MP macro lenses combination. The main camera is a custom sensor of the IMX598, and the X50 Pro has a 48-megapixel main camera + 13MP portrait + 8MP periscope telephoto lens + 8MP wide-angle macro lenses combination. Both main cameras use IMX598 custom sensors. But the X50 Pro is stronger in telephoto and wide-angle macro lenses.
When these phones were announced, we reported they are focusing on unprecedented video shooting features. The entire series comes with an image stabilization micro-cloud platform technology to achieve three-dimensional stabilization and 100% overall module stabilization.
The VIVO X50 series supports professional portrait mode, 60x super zoom, super night scene, night backlight portrait, starry sky mode, super wide-angle mode, super macro mode, and other functions. Among them, the night scene portraits of the VIVO X50 series can be targeted to optimize the face through the algorithm. It’s especially useful for the problem of underexposure of the face in the night scene environment with a dark foreground and bright background.
At the same time, the VIVO X50 series also integrates a 50mm professional portrait lens. This 50mm professional portrait lens can use algorithms to achieve fine-tuning of the face area, retain the true texture of the skin, and still produce beautiful skin tones under complex light sources.
In terms of video recording, the VIVO X50 series also implements the movie portrait function. It can blur the video, highlight the character’s blurred background, and retain the main color of the character.
At present, the VIVO X50 series smartphones have opened pre-sale online and offline channels. On June 6, they will be available for purchase.
