Vivo will release a smartphone with a pendant camera stabilization system
This can provide a more stable picture when recording video than other smartphones.
Vivo published a teaser on Weibo for its next flagship X50. Its key feature will be a block of four cameras, one of which will be in limbo and will be able to rotate.
Judging by the first images, the smartphone received a periscope telephoto lens, two familiar lenses and one larger module. The main camera is mounted on a robotic suspension that can rotate it – this should provide a smoother picture.
A similar Vivo system was already shown in the Apex 2020 concept background. At that time, the company claimed that the engineers were inspired by the eyes of the chameleons. According to Vivo, the pendant stabilization system is 200% more efficient than conventional OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) and will provide longer shutter speeds at night and smooth video recording. Apparently, the X50 will be the first mass smartphone with similar technology.
In addition to the new stabilization system, Apex 2020 was equipped with a unique periscope lens system that moved inside the smartphone. Due to this, the telephoto lens provided optical zoom with an increase of 5 to 7 times.
In other smartphones with similar technology, lenses are usually fixed and can provide only one specific value precisely due to optics. The entire intermediate zoom between the lenses helps to “finish” the algorithms.
As noted at The Verge, the X50 may receive the latest Samsung ISOCELL GN1 sensor, which the company announced on May 19. In it, the company reduced the number of megapixels from 108 to 48, making the size of the dots themselves larger. Product Manager Vivo published in Weibo post about the new sensor, highlighting its size.
The company is going to present a new flagship on June 1.
