Last month in China, Vivo unveiled the Vivo X100 and X100 Pro, both featuring the Dimensity 9300 chipset. In addition, the company has been working on the Vivo X100 Pro+, which is expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 3 chipset. However, recent leaks suggest that the launch of the X100 Pro+ may be delayed beyond the initially rumored timeframe.
It was previously reported that the Vivo X100 Pro+ would be announced in April, alongside other devices, including the Vivo X Fold 3 series of foldable phones. But a recent update from tipster Digital Chat Station on Weibo indicates a change in Vivo’s launch plans. The upcoming event in China is now expected to feature the introduction of three products: the Vivo Pad 3 tablet, a flat-screen variant of the Vivo X100 (likely named the Vivo X100s), and the Vivo X Fold 3 series. While the specific launch dates were not mentioned, it seems likely that these devices could be unveiled in March or April 2024.
Launch of Vivo X100 Pro+ postponed
The Pad 3 and the X100s are rumored to be equipped with the Dimensity 9300 chipset, whereas the X Fold 3 series is expected to feature the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC. Additionally, it was noted that the release of the Vivo X100 Pro+ has been postponed, though the revised timeline for its launch remains undisclosed. It is speculated that the Vivo X100 Pro+ might still be released within the first half of 2024.
There are also rumors about Vivo developing the Vivo X Flip 2 foldable phone. It remains unclear whether this device will be launched alongside the Vivo X Fold 3 or at a later date, potentially with the Vivo X100 Pro+.
In related news, Vivo has confirmed the global market launch of the Vivo X100 and X100 Pro for Dec. 14. The brand has already set up a landing page for the X100 lineup and is currently accepting pre-orders for both the X100 and X100 Pro models.
