I review many smartphones and while each brings their own unique charm, personality and characteristics, one thing which seems to never really change is the basic formula, that is of course until now, Vivo mobile has given us the world’s first gimbal camera smartphone and with my passion for photography, I’m glad to report that it certainly delivers!

The Vivo X50 Pro 5G features a 6.56-inch curved Super AMOLED display with a punch-hole and 90Hz refresh rate. The screen delivers Full HD+ resolution of 2376 x 1080pixels. Vivo X50 Pro 5G is equipped with an in-screen fingerprint reader. All of this is on top of the devices simply stunning looking frosted rear panel and incredibly premium build in the hand.
The X50 Pro 5G is powered by Snapdragon 765G with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The 8GB of RAM delivers outstanding overall performance for opening and running applications, flipping through menus, running home screens and more. FunTouch OS 10 offers a seamless and silky overlay to Android 10 out of the box, and makes for a great overall visual and user experience.
The Vivo X50 Pro 5G is all about photographic quality. Featuring quad rear cameras, including a Sony IMX598 48-megapixel primary shooter, a 13-megapixel portrait, an 8MP Periscope telephoto lens (60x digital zoom) and an 8-megapixel ultrawide lens. For shooting selfies, it will come with a 32-megapixel selfie camera, the camera quality produced by the X50 Pro is sublime.
From shooting low-light to ultra 60x zoom, 4k Video to portraits, images come out simply incredibly thanks to the worlds first gimbal stabilised camera smartphone.
The Vivo X50 Pro 5G is powered by a 4315mAh battery that carries support for 33W fast charging. Ultra Power Saving mode lets you keep your phone powered on for longer in between charges which is a good job considering the powerful internals and simply beautiful waterfall style screen which adorns the X50 Pro.
Much in-keeping with Vivo Mobiles BENFEN philosophy and corporate vision, the X50 Pro represents a vision into revolutionising rather than just evolutionising a segment of technology. It is a vision of tomorrow all packaged in a beautiful construction and one which I really can easily recommend.
