vivo unveils flagship X50 series with built-in gimbal

X50 Pro is equipped with a Gimbal Camera System, enabling ultra-stable photos

vivo unveiled the X50, X50 Pro, and X50 Pro+ series of flagship smartphones, which feature “professional-grade” camera technologies that revolutionize the mobile photography experience. The X50 series features stabilization, night mode, zoom, and portrait technologies.

“Guided by vivo’s deep insights into consumer needs, and underpinned by our advanced technology, we crafted the X50 series to provide a professional photography experience to our users. The X50 series’ stable-shooting capabilities, outstanding lenses and sensors, and overall advanced camera system allow users to capture all of life’s stories with professional quality,” said Spark Ni, Senior Vice President of vivo. “As the first X series products that will be made available to international markets, we are excited to share the best of our innovative technology and design concepts with people around the world.”

The X50 series integrates advanced photography technologies. To reduce shaking, the main camera of X50 Pro is equipped with a gimbal camera system. Modeled after a full-size professional gimbal, the company claims the  X50 Pro’s built-in 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 stabilization methods. 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, customized sensors, and continuous focus tracking further enhance image and video clarity.

X50 Pro has a versatile camera setup with one front camera and four rear cameras. X50 Pro and X50 Pro+ both feature a periscope lens supporting 60x Hyper Zoom, and the main camera on X50 Pro+ features 1/1.3 inch ISOCELL GN1 sensor. The X50 series also feature Super Night Mode and Astro Mode, which together enable users to capture stunning photographs of both city and country scenes at night, while Super Wide-Angle and Super Macro functions help create professional-quality photos in a wide range of scenarios, according to vivo. vivo’s Portrait Mode, powered by a 4-layer masking algorithm, allows users to separate the subject from the background and apply separate effects for a more refined result.

vivo’s X50 series smartphones are built with flexible screens, which are slimmer, lighter, and more durable than traditional screens. X50 is the slimmest 5G phone ever, measuring 7.49mm thick. HDR 10+ technology delivers a bright and vivid display, and AG Frosting on the glass surface creates a soft and delicate touch. The Gimbal Camera System is also designed in the shape of an eye, serving as a unique design element on the rear of X50 Pro.
