The Vivo X100 series, set to debut in November, is generating anticipation among smartphone photographers. Consisting of three models – Vivo X100, X100 Pro, and X100 Pro+ – the X100 Pro+ has drawn considerable attention due to its rumored 200-megapixel periscope telephoto camera.
Vivo X100 Pro+ to launch with 200MP Custom-Made Sensor by Samsung with 10x zoom
Reports from reliable tipster on Weibo suggest that Vivo has taken the customization route for the X100 Pro+’s 200MP camera. They’re aiming to surpass the optical performance of renowned Sony sensors like the IMX890 and IMX866 models. Working in collaboration with Samsung, Vivo is said to have developed a custom-made sensor referred to as the Samsung HPV.
The Samsung HPV sensor utilizes the lightweight Samsung HP3 technology, providing enhanced image quality with its sizable 1/1.4-inch size. Users can expect native 3x or 5x optical zoom capabilities, while advanced AI algorithms will deliver an impressive 10x optical zoom experience.
Dimensity 9300 Chipsets to Support the Camera
Rumors suggest that the X100 and X100 Pro models will feature the unreleased Dimensity 9300 chipset from MediaTek. This flagship chipset is looking powerful and with improved AI features, it can be great for photography.
Meanwhile, the X100 Pro+ is expected to boast the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset. Notably, previous releases like the X90 Pro+ showcased Vivo’s commitment to equipping its flagship devices with top-tier hardware.
X100 Pro+ Release Date
While the X90 Pro+ was solely available in China, it remains unclear whether the X100 Pro+ will have a global launch. However, the increasing demand for advanced smartphone photography features suggests a potential expansion into international markets may be on the horizon.
The Vivo X100 Pro+ promises to redefine smartphone photography with its 200-megapixel periscope telephoto camera. From its custom-made sensor to powerful chipsets, this device holds the potential to offer enthusiasts an unparalleled photography experience. However, all of this depends on how well they integrate the cameras with phone and how good the software optimisations are.
