Today vivo announced the arrival of its X50 and X50 Pro smartphones in India. The X50 Pro+ that was unveiled alongside those two last month didn’t make the cut, but vivo brought the TWS Earphone Neo earphones to the Indian market.
vivo X50 Pro
The vivo X50 Pro is built around a 6.56″ 90Hz AMOLED display of FullHD+ resolution, that has curved edges and a fingerprint reader underneath. The smartphone boots Android 10 and has a Snapdragon 765G SoC at the helm. It comes in a single 8GB/256GB configuration.
The headline feature of the vivo V50 Pro is its camera system. The smartphone sports a 32MP selfie camera and around the back is a quad camera setup comprising 48MP main, 13MP portrait, 8MP periscope telephoto, and 8MP ultrawide angle units.
The primary camera features a gimbal-style stabilization, which promises videos much smoother than any rival. The 8MP telephoto unit comes with 5x optical zoom and promises up to 60x hybrid zoom.
The vivo X50 Pro is powered by a 4,315 mAh battery that draws power from a USB-C port at up to 33W.
The X50 Pro is offered in an Alpha Grey color and is priced at INR49,990 ($665/€580).
The vivo X50 that was launched in China last month came with a Snapdragon 765G SoC, but the Indian unit has the Snapdragon 730 chipset under the hood. The X50 runs Android 10 out of the box and has two memory configurations – 8GB/128GB and 8GB/256GB.
Like the Pro version, the vanilla X50 also sports a 6.56″ 90Hz FullHD+ AMOLED display with a fingerprint reader embedded, but we are looking at a flat panel here instead of one with 3D curves.
The regular X50, like the Pro variant, comes with a total of five cameras but there are some differences. The X50 retains the 32MP selfie shooter and the 48MP main camera, but the gimbal system is gone and the 8MP periscope module is replaced with a 5MP macro unit.
The battery size is also reduced to 4,200 mAh, but it still charges at up 33W through a USB-C port.
The vivo X50 comes in two colors – Frost Blue and Glaze Black. The base model with 8GB RAM and 128GB storage is priced at INR34,990 ($465/€410) and for INR3,000 ($40/€35) more you get double storage.

The vivo TWS Earphone Neo are priced at INR5,990 ($80/€70) and have two color options – Moonlight White and Starry Blue.
