Vivo X50 has a quad rear camera setup comprising a 48MP main sensor, a 13MP telephoto lens, an 8MP ultra-wide camera, and a 5MP macro lens. On the front, it houses a 32MP camera. X50 Pro gets a similar setup with a 48MP main sensor, an 8MP periscope lens, a 13MP portrait sensor, and an 8MP ultra-wide lens. It also gets a 32MP selfie-snapper.
Vivo X50 and X50 Pro are powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 765G chipset coupled with 8GB of RAM and 128GB/256GB of storage. Both the devices run on Android 10 and also pack 4,200mAh and 4,315mAh batteries, respectively, with 33W fast-charging support. For connectivity, the smartphones come with support for dual-band Wi-Fi 802.11a/c, Bluetooth 5.1, NFC, and a Type-C port.
