The vivo X50 family launched this week includes three phones - vanilla vivo X50, a vivo X50 Pro, and the vivo X50 Pro+. While the first two were immediately available for pre-order in China, the initial information on the availability of the mightiest of three was a vague "July".
Now, we get a bit more as the X50 Pro+ appeared on the website of the Chinese online retailer JD.com. It will be available for pre-order starting June 16, which points to actual shipments in the early days of next month although a specific date is still not provided.
Prices begin from CNY4,998 ($700) for the 8/128GB version and go as high as CNY5,998 ($840) for the 12/256GB option in Gravity Blue or Camel Leather (the colors are machine-translated).
The vivo X50 Pro+ differs from the non-Plus version with a 50MP camera featuring Samsung's brand new ISOCELL GN1 1/1.3” sensor. Unfortunately that module is too heavy for the gimble stabilization of the vanilla Pro so it uses conventional OIS.
There is also a periscope shooter on the back with an 8MP sensor and another 8MP camera with ultrawide and macro duties.
We are also expecting vivo to shortly list the phone on its website - while we got the basic specs there are still some uncertainties like exact battery capacity, dimensions and supported network bands.
Certainly bigger, it should be better for stills. X50 Pro might be better for video because of the gimbal, but I think X50 Pro+ will be quite a bit better to everyday photography.
Is the GN1 better than the sony sensor with gimbal?
GSMarena....tell US, Is these phones will appear on the European market ??.
