Photography Refined: Vivo X50 Specs & Performance


With a 92% screen-to-body ratio, the vivo X50 features a 6.56-inch FHD+ screen with E3 AMOLED Display. With a 90Hz refresh rate and 180Hz response rate, the display refreshes faster and responds faster. It also has its very own vivo Energy Guardian technology that helps reduce heating while you’re playing your favorite mobile game.


Similar to its sibling phone, vivo X50 sports the same style and size. It is available in two colors: Frost Blue and Glaze Black. The Frost Blue feels premium and sleek, thanks to its metal frame and frost design. It has a matte finish, contrary to the Glaze Black, which can leave fingerprint residue.

Moreover, the Frost Blue is slimmer and lighter than the Glaze Black. The reason for this is the latter sports a different coating material for the fingerprint sensor area.

Camera performance

This is the exciting part. What is the potential of the vivo X50?

The quad rear camera includes the primary 48MP main camera with IMX598 sensor that helps increase overall light sensitivity by 10% compared to IMX582, an 8MP super wide-angle camera, a 13MP portrait camera and a 5MP macro camera. It also has a 32MP front camera.

The rear camera produces a photo quality of clear, sharp, and vibrant photos, mostly when shot during the day. Close up photos are in excellent quality too, thanks to the large aperture it is inclusive. At the same time, landscape photos were generous enough to leave off a bokeh effect. In line with this, you can also boost the colors through the AI scene recognition.

It can also take snapshots with almost 0-delays along with motion AF tracking and 3D Sound tracking, which helps you to never lose focus to a moving subject.

Expect creamy, subtle, and bright photos when it comes to taking selfies. Even without the beauty mode, notice the separation of the subject and the background. When shooting videos, you can record up to 4k and zoom in twice from ordinary.

Overall, the vivo X50 can fight off its excellent photography features with other top-tier phones.

Software & Applications

It runs on the same software as the vivo X50 Pro, the Funtouch OS 10.5, based on Android 10. It also features Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 SoC with 8GB RAM and 128GB Storage.

It comes with a lot of pre-installed vivo applications which cannot be revoked. Nonetheless, it offers plenty of modes of customization based on your preference. For instance, you can set up the widgets and add Google, Lazada, and other application essentials you need. You can also use its very own assistant, Jovi, for a better experience.

Connectivity & Battery

Since it is a mid-premium smartphone, expect a jam packed feature. It comes with a 2.4G + 5G Wi-Fi MIMO, Bluetooth 5.1, GPS, and more.

With a decent amount of 4200 mAh battery, it can be charged through the FlashCharge 2.0 which can boost the battery percentage to full in less than 30 minutes. On usage, light gaming and daily access to essential apps can get to last for a day or two.


For the final verdict, the vivo X50 features a premium quality of camera performance, battery longevity and software accessibility. This phone can top up the game and redefine photography.
