The company said that the Vivo X50 Pro will launch in international markets. That is one of the three devices the company launched yesterday. Speaking of which, Vivo did share some information with us yesterday, but not all the details.
Vivo X50 series specs have been confirmed by the company
Well, luckily, these specs sheets, and availability information do fill in the gaps. Do note that Vivo said that the X50 Pro will launch internationally in the second half of 2020, but that's pretty much it. We'll have to wait for more information.
Having said that, Vivo announced three devices yesterday, the Vivo X50, X50 Pro, and X50 Pro+. The Vivo X50 Pro+ is definitely the most powerful device that Vivo announced, though the X50 and X50 Pro are nothing to scoff at.
The Vivo X50 Pro+ is definitely the most powerful variant

Vivo X50 & X50 Pro are nothing to scoff at, quite the contrary
The Vivo X50 and X50 Pro are almost identical. There are some differences in camera setups, battery capacities, and dimensions. Other than that, these two phones are the same.
Their front side looks the same as on the Vivo X50 Pro+, but hey include glass on the back, not leather. A display camera hole is placed in the top-left corner, and a curved display is also included. Same as on their big brother.
