In a recent development, Vivo has expanded its smartphone lineup with the introduction of the Vivo X100 series in China. Following this, the brand has announced the global release of the Vivo X100 and X100 Pro models. While specific details regarding pricing and availability remain undisclosed, it is confirmed that Malaysia will be the first market outside China to welcome the X100 series. This was substantiated by the launch date revealed on Vivo Malaysia's website.
Set for release at 3 pm local time on January 3 in Malaysia, the Vivo X100 and X100 Pro mark the series' foray into the global market. This launch is anticipated to be followed closely by releases in India and other Southeast Asian countries.
The Vivo X100 and X100 Pro are expected to cater to diverse consumer needs. The X100 will be available in two variants: 12 GB RAM + 256 GB storage and 16 GB RAM + 512 GB storage. The X100 Pro, on the other hand, will be offered in a single configuration of 16 GB RAM + 512 GB storage. Both models will come in two color choices: Startrail Blue and Asteroid Black.
