Vivo is on the brink of introducing its flagship phone, potentially named the Vivo X100 Ultra, during the first half of 2024, with speculations pointing towards a second-quarter debut. This anticipation follows reports suggesting that Oppo may skip the Find X7 Pro branding in favor of the Find X7 Ultra. In a similar vein, it's speculated that the Vivo X100 Pro+ might hit the market as the Vivo X100 Ultra, although the official name remains unconfirmed. Despite this uncertainty, recent leaks have shed light on some of the expected display and primary camera features of the X100 Ultra.
According to these leaks, the Vivo X100 and X100 Pro currently boast OLED panels supplied by BOE. The upcoming X100 Pro+ or X100 Ultra, as indicated by a new Weibo post from tipster Digital Chat Station, is set to feature a Samsung E7 AMOLED display. This display is expected to offer a 2K resolution and possibly a 120Hz refresh rate, an upgrade from the 1.5K resolution offered by its predecessors.

Further insights from Weibo suggest that the Vivo X100 Pro+ will be outfitted with a LYT-900 50-megapixel primary camera, known for its large aperture. This camera is also expected to feature in the Oppo Find X7, slated for a debut in the second week of January. The Xiaomi 14 Ultra, with a launch anticipated in Q2 2024, is rumored to include the same camera sensor.
The Vivo X100 Pro+ is expected to be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset and may be the only model in the X100 series to support two-way satellite communication. Leaked specifications for the rear camera setup include an IMX589 50-megapixel ultra-wide lens, an IMX758 50-megapixel portrait lens, and a 200-megapixel periscope telephoto camera. The device is likely to run on Android 14 and Origin OS 4. The X100 Pro features a 5,400mAh battery with 100W wired and 50W wireless charging support, and it remains to be seen if the X100 Pro+ will match these capabilities.
