Samsung's latest 50MP camera sensor will reportedly make its debut alongside the upcoming Vivo X50 Pro. The phone is rumored to come with ''gimbal-like stabilization", according to some promo material.

The rumored Vivo X50 Pro is slated to bring forth a host of exciting features, including Qualcomm's newest upper-mid-range Snapdragon 768 5G SoC. It is the second phone ever that comes with the chip, the first one being the Redmi K30 Pro Speed Edition. However, Vivo's upcoming mid-ranger will be the first phone to come with Samsung's latest 50MP camera sensor.

Samsung announced the release of its new ISOCELL GN1 sensor earlier today. It functions a lot like the 108MP sensor we've seen in the Galaxy S20 Ultra in many ways. For starters, it too produces ~12MP images under low light conditions but uses Tetracell (4:1) pixel binning instead of Nonacell (9:1). You can read more about the ISOCELL GN1's innards here.

The sensor can also snap 100MP images, something that a lot of the Vivo X50 Pro's marketing material is centered around. Vivo's initial schtick was always the camera's performance of its devices, and the company is returning to its roots. The phone doesn't have a release date yet, but we can expect to hear more about it in the coming days. It is a tad surprising that Vivo opted to name its phone X50 Pro, considering that Realme already has a device going by that name.
