Vivo Malaysia has officially announced that the latest X series smartphone, the Vivo X50, will launch locally sometime soon. Based on its debut in China earlier in June, the series consists of three devices: the standard X50, the X50 Pro, and the X50 Pro Plus.
Starting with the standard Vivo X50, the phone is equipped with a 6.56-inch Full HD+ display with 90Hz refresh rate, a Snapdragon 765 chipset, 8GB RAM and up to 256GB internal storage. It is powered by a 4,200mAh battery that supports 33W fast charging.
Camera-wise, the device sports a quad-camera setup on its back consisting of a Sony IMX598 48MP sensor with four-axis OIS, 13MP portrait, 8MP periscope, and a 8MP wide angle. Housed in a punch-hole cutout in the front display is a 32MP selfie camera.
The Pro variant offers mostly similar specifications, save for some minor differences. These include a slightly larger 4,315mAh battery and instead of a four-axis OIS, its 48MP camera utilises a gimbal-like technology that provides better stabilisation.
Lastly, the Vivo X50 Pro Plus comes with a 6.56-inch Full HD+ OLED display with 120Hz refresh rate. Under the hood, the phone features a higher-end Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 chipset, up to 12GB RAM, and a storage capacity of up to 256GB. It is powered by a 4,350mAh battery that supports 44W fast charging.
The Pro Plus also comes with an advanced quad-camera setup on its back, which consists of a main Samsung GN1 50MP shooter, a 32MP portrait, 13MP periscope, and a 13MP wide angle. Like the Pro version, its main camera features the gimbal technology for image stabilisation. In front is a 32MP selfie camera housed in a punch-hole cutout in its display.
Keep in mind that the specs for all three phones in the X50 series listed above are based on its Chinese release. Vivo Malaysia has not revealed the full spec sheets, and we have yet to see if the phones will have different configurations when released locally.
The exact launch date and pricing for the new X50 series have not been announced as well. But for your reference, the Vivo X50 Pro Plus with 8GB + 128GB retails at CNY4,998 (~RM3,015) in China. While the the X50 Pro with 8GB + 128GB is priced at CNY4,298 (~RM2,592), and the base X50 comes in at CNY3,498 (~RM2,110) for the 8GB + 128GB model.
