Vivo, on July 16, 2020, announced the launch of three new products for the Indian market – the Vivo X50 series smartphones and the new Vivo TWS earphones. The two new X series handsets – the Vivo X50 and the X50 Pro – are the first X-series devices from Vivo to come to India in nearly two years. Let’s take a closer look at the key specifications, features, and highlights of these new products, shall we?
We start things off by talking about the two new smartphones. If you recall, the last X series handset to come to India was the Vivo X21 way back in May 2018. This handset was a mid-range device that was quite remarkable in that it was famous for being the first smartphone to feature an in-display fingerprint scanner. The new X50 series phones continue to remain mid-range devices and also come with an in-display fingerprint scanner, which isn’t really a stand-out feature anymore.
Both the handsets feature mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 series processors and have near-identical battery capacities (4200mAh on the X50 and 4315mAh on the X50 Pro). Both the handsets support 33W fast charging as well.
Vivo X50, Vivo X50 Pro Specifications: What are the differences?
Let’s address the most important question first. What are the key differences between the standard X50 and the X50 Pro? Here’s a ready reckoner.
- Vivo X50 Pro: 6.56 inch 3D curved Super AMOLED display, 1080*2376 pixels, HDR10+
- Vivo X50: 6.56-inch flat Super AMOLED display, 1080*2376 pixels, HDR10+
Processor and variants

- Vivo X50: Qualcomm Snapdragon 730, 8GB+128GB, 8GB+256GB
- Vivo X50 Pro Rear Cameras: 48MP primary ‘Gimbal’ camera (f/1.6) +13MP portrait (f/2.46) + 8MP ultrawide (f/2.2) + 8MP telephoto (f/3.4)

The highlight feature of the X50 Pro is the primary 48MP camera with enhanced stabilization features.
