Launch of Vivo X100 Pro+ postponed

Rumors in the tech world suggest that the highly anticipated launch of Vivo's X100 Pro+ model has been delayed for unknown reasons.

Launch of Vivo X100 Pro+ postponed

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.

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.
