Vivo X50 Pro First Impressions: The Vivo X50 Pro is the first smartphone to come equipped with Snapdragon 765G in India.
It also sports a Gimbal Camera system which claims to enhance stabilisation for a movie, in addition, to still photography. Smartphone maker Vivo hasn’t updated its X series since the Vivo X21 launched over two decades ago.
It was the very first smartphone in India to game an in-display fingerprint scanner. The company has launched two new smartphones in this series, called the Vivo X50 and the X50 Pro.
The Vivo X50 Guru is the highlight here since it packs at a gimbal camera along with OIS and EIS, and claims to give excellent stabilisation. We got to spend some time together with the Vivo X50 Pro, and here are our first impressions of the device.

With the Vivo X50 Guru, the messaging is apparent: it’s a camera-focused smartphone that brings a new gimbal camera system to the market.
While most smartphones rely upon OIS or EIS to stabilise footage, the Vivo X50 Pro additionally uses a gimbal, which means that the detector physically moves to compensate for replacements.
Let’s start with the design
The display curves on the sides where it matches the frame. The glass back panel also curves to the frame, provides this phone a superior look and makes it comfortable to hold.
Vivo ships the X50 Pro within an Alpha Grey complete. Vivo has opted for Schott Xensation UP glass at the front and rear.

The Vivo X50 Pro has a 6.56-inch AMOLED display with a hole to the selfie camera towards the upper left corner, which is not very distracting. (Vivo X50 Pro First Impressions)
This panel includes a 90Hz refresh rate that made the UI feel smooth whilst scrolling through the different menus. It also has an in-display fingerprint scanner that’s conveniently positioned.
The screen becomes bright enough and has very good viewing angles. I will report more of my findings once I review this device.
The frame of this X50 Pro is thin, and the power and the volume buttons are on the right. There is a small recess where these buttons are positioned, plus they have good feedback, making them easy to hit only by feel.
The top and the base of the telephone are completely flat. It’s a USB Type-C port in the bottom along with a bottom-firing speaker and a SIM tray.
There’s no 3.5millimeter headphone jack on this apparatus, but the company ships a USB Type-C into 3.5millimeter adaptor and an in-ear headset in the box. The Vivo X50 Guru is a dual-SIM device and has two Nano-SIM slots. (Vivo X50 Pro First Impressions)
This chip is capable of 5G connectivity and are also powering the upcoming OnePlus Nord. The X50 Pro is the first smartphone with all the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G 5G SoC at India and I’m interested to see how it compares to other processors.
It has 8GB of RAM and just a 256GB storage arrangement was established in India. I’ve the top-end version with me. Storage is non-expandable, however I don’t find this as a problem as Vivo offers adequate storage.
The Vivo X50 Pro houses a 4315mAh battery in its own tiny frame and weighs only 181.5g. It also will come with a 33W FlashCharge 2.0 charger at the box which should help control the device at a quick pace.
The Vivo X50 Pro runs FunTouchOS 10.5 along with Android 10 and was running the May security patch, which is acceptable.
The highlight of this setup is really a customised 48-megapixel Sony IMX598 primary sensor mounted from the brand new gimbal system.
This allows the lens and the sensor to manoeuvre about to compensate for replacements. Vivo claims that this won’t only help for video but also for low-light hand-held stills. I found this very interesting and will be testing it fully in my own review.
Accompanying the key sensor is an 8-megapixel super-wide-angle camera which is also capable of taking macros at up to 2.5cm. There’s a 13-megapixel depth camera using an f/2.48 aperture for photos, and an 8-megapixel telephoto camera.
The camera module protrudes slightly at the trunk, also Vivo has employed a two-step design. The telephoto camera sits at the very first step while another three are raised slightly farther.
The primary camera looks physically larger than others. Vivo also appears to have added many new camera program attributes to the X50 Guru, which I will be testing in the entire review.
It is priced near the OnePlus 8 Pro and the Mi 10 5G but does it make it to our listing of greatest phones under Rs. 50,000? Stay tuned to Gadgets360 Tech News for the full review of the Vivo X50 Pro.
