Vivo is on the brink of introducing its flagship smartphone series, the Vivo X100, with an official launch date set for November 13. The anticipation has been heightened by the recent online leak of a live image of the device, which offers enthusiasts a glimpse of what's to come.
The image, originating from a Weibo user, reveals the back view of the Vivo X100. It features a captivating blue panel with a unique, curved pattern reminiscent of the night sky. Dominating the back is a substantial round camera module stamped with the prestigious Zeiss branding, accompanied by a flash. The phone's design with curved corners suggests it will be a comfortable hold.
A new image of the Vivo X100 has been leaked
Previous leaks have shone light on the camera capabilities of the X100, showcasing impressive results from benchmarks such as Geekbench and AnTuTu. Reports suggest that the standard Vivo X100 model will boast an f/1.57 primary camera, which could be a Sony IMX920 or a Lytia LYT-8xx sensor. A 64MP Omnivision OV64B telephoto lens is expected to complement this primary sensor, alongside a 50MP Samsung ISOCELL JN1 ultra-wide sensor.
The Pro variant is anticipated to mirror the standard model's camera setup with an enhancement to a 200MP primary sensor. Both models are rumored to incorporate Zeiss Vario-Tessar (T*) lenses in conjunction with Vivo's V3 image signal processor. While the standard model is nearly confirmed to house a Dimensity 9300 SoC, the processor in the Pro model remains a topic of speculation. Despite a Geekbench listing hinting at the presence of the older Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset, it is widely speculated that Vivo will opt for either the Dimensity 9300 or the newer Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip.
This upcoming launch positions Vivo to potentially set a new benchmark in the smartphone camera domain, propelling the brand further into the competitive landscape of high-end mobile technology.
