If you are not for pretty ridiculous curve screen, then you may want to look away. If not, it may be the device to look out if you have access to China market.

There are two models in the series: Vivo X50 and Vivo X50 Pro. The main differences are in the battery capacity, main camera setup, and the display. Speaking of the display, they do have the same resolution, same 6.56-inch diagonal screen size, but one is curved display while other is not.
