The X50 Pro has been teased as one of Smart Communications’ new device offerings for its 5G Signature Plans, along with phones from other brands. We’ve prodded several Vivo promoters in a few malls we’ve been into this past weekend to spill the beans, too, and we found out that the more affordable Vivo X50 is set to arrive in the country as well.

No price has been mentioned, but we’ve discussed that the Vivo X50 might take on current bang-for-the-buck flagship phones at the sub-Php30k price range, while the X50 Pro might sport a price not-so-high enough similar to the previously-released Vivo NEX 3. These phones, according to promoters, are scheduled to launch later this month, so check back for more updates as we get them.
