vivo X50 Pro+ in for review

Ricky, 25 August 2020

Last month, we reviewed the vivo X50 Pro. It’s a premium midrange smartphone with a first-of-its-kind gimball system built into the main camera. That phone was in the middle of its lineup and the proper flagship is the vivo X50 Pro+, which we’ve finally received in the office ready for review.

The vivo X50 Pro+ comes with a Snapdragon 865 chipset and a higher-end camera setup than the X50 Pro – well, minus the gimball system. There’s a 6.56-inch FHD+ AMOLED screen with 120Hz refresh rate, Android 10 with Funtouch 10.5 out of the box, and faster UFS 3.1 internal storage is the standard (up to 256GB).

The quad-cam setup is made up of a main 50MP camera with huge 1/1.31" sensor, f/1.9 aperture and Dual Pixel Autofocus, there’s a 13MP periscope telephoto camera with 5X optical zoom, a second 32MP telephoto camera with 2X optical zoom, and a 13MP ultra wide camera with 120-degree field of view. That 50MP camera can capture 8K video as well.

The front-facing camera is identical to the one on the X50 Pro: it’s a 32MP unit with f/2.5 aperture lens.

The battery isn’t much larger than the X50 Pro at 4,350 mAh, but it does have a beefier fast-charge adapter with up to 44W output and an advertised 62% recharge in 30 minutes.

With superior photography and videography skills, better performance and storage speeds, and faster recharging we expect the X50 Pro+ to offer a much more premium experience than its non-Plus sibling. We've now set off to find if it's worth the extra cost - stay tuned for our review!

Then you can't buy it. But you can travel to Russia/Ukraine and get it

Just wondering - how and where do you buy these phone if one doesn't want to import? I live in Denmark and no Danish shops has this product. I don't want to import from China or some risky business like that.
