The current flagship in the vivo portfolio is the X50 Pro+ - it sports a 50MP 1/1.31” sensor with f/1.9 aperture in front, a 13MP periscope telephoto cam with 5X optical zoom and another telephoto shooter, this one being 32 MP with 2X optical zoom for portraits with pixel-binning technology.
Now vivo has decided to also take its looks up a notch and launched a special edition of the X50 Pro+ in collaboration with the Alexander Wang fashion brand.
The phone comes with a customized back panel and a special theme for the FuntouchOS 10.5 that will be exclusively available for these units. On the inside, it is the very same Snapdragon 865-powered device, but vivo decided to go all in and equipped the special version with its mightiest memory combination - 12GB RAM + 256GB storage.
The vivo X50 Pro+ Alexander Wang Edition, as is the full name of this phone, will go on pre-order on September 17 at the company website. The price remains the same as the regular 12/256 GB versions - CNY5,998 or about $875/€745.
The X50 Pro+ is unlikely to arrive outside China, so if you’re willing to purchase it, beware that it will lack any Google services and you might have trouble installing them from scratch.
Not really that surprised with this collab. After all, Vivo even said that the vanilla X50 is for style-conscious consumers. So I wouldn't be surprised to see such a theme going on with the more powerful X50 Pro and X50 Pro+.
Eventually we will have sPeCiAl SnOwFlAkEs here complaining about how 'wang' is slang for pen*s and that they want it changed.
