VIVO is working hard on a 5G smartphone this year. They could make a Snapdragon 865 flagship within 3,000 yuan ($ 421) and a Dimensity 1000 5G phone. In this sense, the VIVO X50, X50 Pro and X50 Pro + phones released tonight show that the Snapdragon 765G can be sold for 4,698 yuan ($ 659). Honestly, this series is great, but it makes a lot of people feel a little weird.
Main differences of the VIVO X50 series
As the flagship model of the VIVO, the point of sale of the X Series was not always the cost-effectiveness ratio, but the extremely light body and camera. In this respect, VIVO has worked very hard. The X50 weighs only 173 grams and is 7.49 mm thick. Among today’s flagship models, this is the lightest model. At the same time, due to the COP packaging process, the X50 Pro weighs 181.5 grams and has a thickness of 8.04 mm.
However, the selling point of the VIVO X50 series is the invisible video capture capabilities. The phone has a new image stabilization system, which is much better than OIS.

In terms of screen, the VIVO X50 / X50 Pro / X50 Pro + has a 6.56-inch AMOLED screen. But if the X50 has a straight screen, the X50 Pro and X50 Pro + come with a curved screen. The refresh rates of the three are 90Hz, 90Hz, 120Hz and the touch sampling rates are 180Hz, 180Hz, 240Hz, respectively. Obviously, the X50 Pro + is slightly better.
The X50 series uses a screen design with a hole (the X50 and X50 Pro are both 6.56 inch screens, the previous body width is 75.39 mm, the last one is 72.80 mm, the handle is more comfortable). They also come with a flexible AM3ED P3 full color display with COP packaging process, 1300nit maximum brightness, HDR 10+ technology and support for Eagle Eye function to enhance the game screen and LTM sunlight display (Switzerland SGS).
In terms of design, the VIVO X50 Pro + uses a simple high quality leather material, which is available in camel and gravity colors.
Under the hood, the VIVO X50 / X50 Pro features a Snapdragon 765G processor, 8 GB LPDDR4X memory, UFS 2.0 / UFS 2.1 flash storage, while the X50 Pro + does not specify flash memory and memory. However, we do know that the processor has been upgraded to Snapdragon 865.
In addition, the X50 Pro + only provides a maximum capacity of 256 GB, which is a little less. The top configuration must be 12 + 512 GB.
In terms of battery and charging, the VIVO X50 / X50 Pro has 4200mAh and 4315mAh batteries, supporting 33W flash charging. But the X50 Pro + has a 4350mAh battery. The capacity has not been upgraded much, but the charging has been upgraded to 44W.
Photo and video recording
The biggest difference is of course the rear camera. The X50 has a 48 megapixel main camera + 13 megapixel portrait + 8 megapixel wide angle + 5MP macro lens 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 lens combination. Both main cameras use custom IMX598 sensors. But the X50 Pro is more powerful in telephoto and wide-angle macro lenses.
The most important difference is the image stabilization. The X50 still uses traditional OIS (optical image stabilization), while the X50 Pro has micro-camera image stabilization.
As for the VIVO X50 Pro +, it has been further upgraded to a 50MP main camera, 32MP professional portrait, 13 MP telephoto lens and 13MP wide-angle telephoto lens. The main camera sensor is still the custom Samsung GN1 with 50MP resolution, 1 / 1.3 outsole and also supports 100MP function.
In terms of sound quality, the VIVO X series always performs well in HiFi. The X50 supports three microphones and Hi-Res certification, while the X50 Pro adds an AK4377A audio quality chip. The latter also supports Hi-Res certification.
Finally, the VIVO X50 8 + 128 GB is 3498 yuan ($ 491) and the 8 + 256 GB is 3898 yuan (547). The price of the X50 Pro is 4298 yuan ($ 603) for the 8 + 128 GB variant and 4698 yuan ($ 659) for the 8 + 256 GB model.
In short, comparing the prices and specifications of the three X50 / X50 Pro / X50 Pro + phones, we believe that the 4950 yuan X50 Pro + phone is more honest.
