New Vivo X50 series smartphones: Shoot like a professional photographer

Camera capabilities have become a key consideration when choosing a smartphone. Practically every brand of flagship smartphone aims to outdo the other with their camera technologies — whether it’s more lenses or photo enghancement software.

The new Vivo X50 and X50 Pro have been pitched as being able to “revolutionise the mobile photography experience” because of their professional-grade camera technologies.

Available in major APAC markets, including India, from next quarter, the X50 series flagship smartphones are designed to provide a professional photography experience to users.

“With stable shooting capabilities, outstanding lenses and sensors, and an overall advanced camera system, the X50 series flagship devices allow users to capture life stories with professional quality,” said Spark Ni, Senior Vice President of Vivo.

With stabilisation, night mode, zoom, and portrait technologies, the X50 smartphones lets users capture stable and high-quality images and videos in a wide range of scenarios.

To reduce shaking, the main camera of X50 Pro is equipped with a Gimbal Camera System that allows users to take clear photos and videos while in motion, even at night. Modelled after a full-size professional gimbal, X50 Pro’s built-in miniature gimbal module moves in the opposite direction of shaking motions, providing increased stability for the main camera. This system also widens the rotation angle and anti-shake area compared to popular stabilisation methods, resulting in super clear images. The Gimbal Radar, an on-screen animated ball that reflects the gimbal’s movement, lets users know when the frame is stable. Vivo’s motion-deblur algorithm, customised sensors, and continuous focus tracking further enhance image and video clarity.

X50 Pro comes with one 32MP front camera and four cameras on the rear — 48MP main, 8MP super wide-angle, 13MP professional portrait, and 8MP 5x telescopic that supports 60x hyper zoom.

The super night mode and astro mode in both smartphones lets users capture stunning photographs of both city and country scenes at night. The 120-degree super wide-angle and super macro functions help create professional-quality photos in a wide range of scenarios.

Powered by a four-layer masking algorithm, Vivo’s portrait mode allows users to separate the subject from the background and apply separate effects for a more refined result.

Beyond these professional photography capabilities, the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor-powered X50 Pro supports 5G connectivity and has a high screen refresh rate of 90Hz, to display crisp images, movies and a smooth gaming experience.
