Vivo Launches Y50 With Quad Cameras & a Huge Battery

As the pandemic situation in China improves, Chinese OEMs are trying to get on track with their launch plans. Consequently, we will see several smartphones being released in the foreseeable future.

Vivo, via a Facebook post, launched one of its mid-rangers dubbed the Vivo Y50 yesterday. The smartphone is currently available for sale in Cambodia but might reach the rest of the world soon.

Design and Display

Akin to Vivo mid-range smartphones, the Y50 also comes with a “glasstic” back with a subtle paint job. The quad-sensor rear camera system sits on a rectangular housing on the top left next to the fingerprint sensor. It is available in black and blue colors.

The smartphone is built around a 6.53-inch LCD with 1080p resolution, 20:9 aspect ratio, and 403 PPI pixel density. According to Vivo, the smartphone features the “Ultra-O display”, which is a fancy way of saying that it comes with a single punch-hole for the selfie camera.

Internals and Storage

Vivo Y50 comes with Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chipset at the helm. The SoC is topped with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB storage. In case that is not enough, the smartphone features a dedicated memory card slot as well.


The smartphone boasts a quad-sensor rear camera with 13 MP main sensor, 8 MP ultra-wide sensor, a dedicated 2 MP Macro-lens, and a 2 MP depth sensor. For selfies, it is equipped with an 8 MP snapper.

Battery and Pricing

Vivo Y50 packs a massive 5000 mAh battery backed by 18W fast charging.

It is currently available for pre-order and will go on sale by 11th April 2020 at a $250 price tag.
