vivo has announced its flagship X50 family of smartphones – the vivo X50, X50 Pro and X50 Pro+. The last two are defined by the exceptional photography capabilities, while the first one is the slimmest 5G phone to date.

Unlike its Pro version, the vanilla X50 does not have the the gimbal stabilization and the periscope zoom but has design as its key selling point.

In fact the vanilla vivo X50 is the thinnest 5G phone measuring just 7.49mm. It is powered by the Snapdragon 765G chipset and is built around a 6.56-inch AMOLED of the same resolution as its siblings, 2376 x 1080, it however only comes with flat panel.

The punch-hole houses a 32MP camera just like on the X50 Pro and X50 Pro+. There’s the smallest of differences in the aperture – the X50 has an F/2.48 lens vs F/2.45 for the Pro phones.

Around the back you get the same 48MP sensor with f/1.6 aperture as on the X50 Pro but it uses standard OIS instead of the advanced solution on the more premium phone. The ultrawide and the 13MP “short” telephoto cameras remain the same.

It has a 4,200 mAh battery that can be charged at 33W with the included charging brick.
