Vivo X50 Series and Vivo TWS Neo are now available for purchase in India. These devices made their debut last week and can finally be purchased via various retail channels. With the X50 Series, Vivo is making a play for the premium smartphone segment but it is fully aware of the difficulties in that space. It aims to challenge the likes of Xiaomi, Realme, Apple, Samsung, Oppo and OnePlus. There are few things that work in favor of X50 Series, which is premium design but performance is something that does not show on paper.
