Gimbal Camera:
If you are involved in videography or photography then you must be familiar with the word Gimbal. But for some who heard this word for the first time. Gimbal is a device, basically a stand for the camera. It can be calibrated to lock the camera at an angle. Once the angle is locked, this stand makes sure to keep your camera steady in the locked angle. Even when the stand is shaken from left, right, up, down, tilted the camera angle doesn’t change. It will be pointing toward the same direction. It is used by filmmakers, videographers, drones etc to get steady and smooth video when they moving or running around.

VIVO for the first time put this technology in their smartphone. They designed this smartphone camera with Gimbal mechanism. VIVO X50 Pro smartphone Gimbal tech works fantastically well. It gives steady video. If you think this Gimbal mechanism functionality is limited to videography then you are wrong. This tech is even useful for photography. At low light when you don’t have much light source, you can increase the aperture and shutter speed to allow more light to come in. So when you click with this setting, you need to hold the camera steady for at least 30 sec. With other smartphones keeping the camera steady will be a little difficult and may lead to blur edges but since VIVO X50 Pro has the gimbal mechanism it will have stable camera leading to a sharp image.

VIVO X50 Pro has 6.56”, 3D Curved, Ultra O – Full HD, Super AMOLED Display. 1080p Resolution screen has a 90Hz refresh rate with 180Hz touch sampling rate. This smartphone gives completely bezel-less experience because of its thin bezels.

VIVO X50 Pro comes with 4315mAh massive battery with 33W fast charging.

Software and performance:

VIVO X50 Pro comes with Funtouch OS 10.5, which runs on Android 10. This is combined with Qualcomm Snapdragon 755G Octacore 5G processor. This phone has LPDDR4 8GB RAM with 256GB UFS 2.1 based storage. Even though this phone has 5G and other interesting specs, the main highlight will be its camera, design and display. Performance is good with 755G processor but can’t be called as best as some better processors are available in the market.

Concluding Words:

VIVO X50 Pro is a camera-centric smartphone and with this smartphone, VIVO entered in the premium segment of smartphones.
