Vivo is now bringing that camera feature to a couple models in its latest flagship series, the X50 family. "The X50 series' stable shooting capabilities, outstanding lenses and sensors, and overall advanced camera system allow users to capture all of life's stories with professional quality", said Spark Ni, Senior Vice President of vivo. Vivo has told us that "the X50 series will be available gradually in worldwide markets in the second half of this year". Vivo says the system widens the rotation angle, as well as the anti-shake area, compared to other stabilization methods. An animated ball on the screen represents the gimbal's movement and let's users see when the frame is stable. Besides the impossibly curvy screen sides and the under-display front camera wishful thinking, the Apex 2020 concept featured a "48MP gimbal camera", and that new image stabilization idea is now likely to make it in a commercial device. The Vivo X50 and X50 Pro are powered by Snapdragon 765G SoC and the Vivo X50 Pro+ is rumored to be driven by Snapdragon 865. Each of the phones has four cameras around back, with the X50 getting a 48-megapixel main unit together with 13-MP, 8-MP and 5-MP modules, the X50 Pro also has a 48-MP main shooter, but gets one 13-MP and two 8-MP modules, and the X50 Pro+ comes with a 50-MP main camera along with a 32-MP and two 13-MP units. X50 Pro and X50 Pro+ both feature a periscope lens that supports 60x Hyper Zoom, and the main camera on X50 Pro+ features 1/1.3 inch ISOCELL GN1 sensor, leading to photos of breathtaking detail.

Other features of the X50 series include support for HDR10+ and screen refresh rates of 90Hz and 120Hz, plus there's frosted glass finish on the rear. This technology should get popular soon as vivo has always been the trendsetter in the smartphone industry with its in-display fingerprint sensors to pop-up selfie cameras that showed up previously. X50 is the slimmest 5G phone ever, measuring only 7.49mm thick.
