vivo X50 Lite appears in Australia

Yordan, 12 May 2020

What is the difference between the Russian vivo V17, the international vivo S1 Pro, and the vivo Y9s? Trick question -all three phones are exactly the same, just renamed for different markets.

Now this very same handset has appeared at the Australian retailer JB Hi-Fi under a fourth different name - vivo X50 Lite.

This vivo X50 Lite brings a Snapdragon 665 chipset, a 6.38” AMOLED screen and a fingerprint scanner under the display. The SoC is coupled with 8GB RAM and 128 gigs of storage, but it is expandable through the microSD slot.

The four shooters on the back are arranged in a diamond-shaped setup, with a 48MP main snapper and a 8MP ultrawide-angle cam sitting next to two 2MP snappers - one for macro shots, the other for background blur. The selfie cam resolution is 16MP.

Thanks for the tip!
