SINGAPORE, 5 August 2020 – vivo has announced the launch of the X50 and X50 Pro 5G—part of the all-new vivo X50 series of flagship smartphones— across Singapore on August 15. Realizing vivo’s commitment to user-centric design and innovation, X50 and X50 Pro 5G feature professional-grade camera technologies that revolutionize the mobile photography experience.
With cutting-edge stabilization, night mode, zoom, and portrait technologies, X50 series smartphones enable users to capture stable and high-quality images and videos in a wide range of scenarios, making every shot a masterpiece. The design of vivo’s X50 series draws from natural elements and futuristic aesthetics, aiming to complement the active lifestyles of consumers. With professional photography capabilities, stunning design, and smooth performance, X50 series pushes the boundaries of high-end flagship smartphones.
“Guided by vivo’s deep insights into consumer needs, and underpinned by our advanced technology, the X50 series is a professional photography flagship smartphone for consumers to record and share the best moments of their lives in a simple way,” said Messi Liu Hong Bin, CEO of vivo Singapore.“With stable shooting capabilities, outstanding lenses and sensors, and an overall advanced camera system, the X50 series flagship devices allow users to capture all of life’s stories with professional quality. We are excited to share the best of our innovative technology and design concepts with local consumers.”
With 5G developing rapidly and soon available in Singapore, more consumers will be able to enjoy the benefits 5G can bring given its much faster speed, low latency and massive interconnectivity capabilities. Through the X50 series, vivo hopes to bring the next generation mobile experience closer and more accessible to users, allowing everyone to enjoy the benefits of the latest technology, enabling more creativity and productivity.
Mobile Photography, Redefined
The X50 series integrates professional photography technologies. To reduce shaking, the main camera of X50 Pro 5G is equipped with an industry-leading Gimbal Camera System, allowing users to take clear photos and videos while in motion, even at night. Modelled after a full-size professional gimbal, X50 Pro’s built-in miniature 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, resulting in super clear images. 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 series consists of true photography flagship smartphones. X50 Pro 5G has a versatile camera setup with one 32MP front camera and four cameras on the rear (48MP Main, 8MP Super Wide-Angle, 13MP Professional Portrait, and 8MP 5x Telescopic). X50 Pro’s 5x Telescopic lens also supports 60x Hyper Zoom, leading to photos of breathtaking detail.
X50 and X50 Pro 5G feature Super Night Mode and Astro Mode, which together enable users to capture stunning photographs of both city and country scenes at night, while 120° Super Wide-Angle (108° after distortion correction) and Super Macro functions help create professional-quality photos in a wide range of scenarios. 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.
Sleek Performance and Design
In addition to its professional photography capabilities, the X50 series delivers overall flagship performance. The series supports 5G connectivity, allowing users to stay online with super fast speeds and low latency. Powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor, X50 Pro 5G provides fast computing speed and smooth multitasking capabilities. The series features a high screen refresh rate of 90Hz, displaying crisp images, movies, and games without smears or blurs.
Reflecting vivo’s design-driven innovation, X50 series smartphones are built with flexible screens, which are slimmer, lighter, and more durable than traditional screens. X50 Pro 5G is one of the slimmest 5G phones ever. HDR 10+ technology delivers a bright and vivid display, and AG Matte Glass offers 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 5G.
