First they were the mobiles with two cameras, then with three, four and even five. Then came the periscopi-type optical zoomor, TOF cameras, laser focus and the folding cameras for Selfies. What is next in mobile cameras? Well the gimball cameras are HUGE.
The first to jump on the bandwagon of this new trend is going to be, unless another manufacturer prevents it, the Vivo X50. The manufacturer has shown some videos of this new phone and in them you can see a module with four cameras, but one of them is particularly large.
The reason for that size has not been specified, but if we stick to the Vivo Apex 2020 (the conceptual mobile that we never got to see in the real world because of the covid-19 pandemic), it is a 48-megapixel camera with gimball type mechanical stabilizer.
At the time Vivo explained that the system is inspired by the eyes of chameleons and that it is basically an image stabilizer, but 200 times more effective than current systems. If you have ever used a Gimball or a drone, you will know that the promise here is really interesting, especially for recording video. Another reason for that size is that the X50’s main camera could carry the new Samsung Isocell GN1 image sensor. According to information published by Vivo on the net WeiboIt is a 1 / 1.3 inch sensor, which perfectly explains the size. Good news for night photography.
ANDThe X50 is going to be the first business model to install this camera. If Vivo also takes advantage of what was announced with the Apex 2020, the X50 also It could have a zoom with motorized lenses that would allow it to change from 5x to 7x optically, not cutting the image by software as the Galaxy S20 does. The official presentation of the Vivo X50 will take place on June 1. At the moment neither price nor availability is known.[[Weibo via The Verge]
