At the beginning of this month, vivo unveiled its latest smartphone innovation: a gimbal optical image stabilization system, which the vivo X50 Pro uses for its main camera sensor instead of a traditional OIS system.
The X50 Pro was joined in the spotlight by the vanilla X50 and the X50 Pro+ (although confusingly the latter drops the gimbal-like stabilization despite its name implying it’s a step up in all areas compared to the Pro).
That announcement was in China, for the Chinese market, but if you were patiently waiting to hear about a global release, here’s some good news for you. vivo is going to take the X50 series out of China next month.
That’s everything we know so far – which, admittedly, isn’t much. But expect these handsets to be found wherever vivo already has an official presence outside of its home country. So, in Asia, we will probably see them in – among other places – Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, and, of course, India. We’ll give you pricing and availability details once we have them.
