Vivo X100 Pro+ to Feature 200MP Periscope Telephoto Camera, Design Render Leaked

If true, this will be a huge upgrade over the 64MP periscope telephoto sensor on the current-gen Vivo X90 Pro+.

  • The Vivo X100 series will have three models: Vivo X100, Vivo X100 Pro, and Vivo X100 Pro+.
  • The X100 Pro+ is rumored to come with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor.
  • Vivo is tipped to release the X100 series as early as November this year.

It has only been a couple of months since Vivo debuted the X90 series in India. We at MySmartPrice reviewed the X90 Pro and were quite impressed with what it brought to the table. Vivo is now preparing for the release of a successor lineup that will likely be called X100. Now, a fresh set of leaks has revealed key details about the most premium offering in the series i.e. Vivo X100 Pro+.

Vivo X100 Pro+ Design Renders Leaked

Fixed Focus Digital, a Weibo-based tipster, has shared what he claims to be the Vivo X100 Pro+ design render. The leaked image shows the upcoming smartphone in Black colour and gives us a good look at the back panel. One can see the Vivo branding at the bottom and the Zeiss branding on the camera module.

The latter is because of the collaboration between Zeiss and Vivo for fine-tuning the smartphone camera performance. The phone has a raised square island which appears to be glass. It has a circular camera module featuring four camera sensors. The one in the bottom right corner is a periscope telephoto sensor.

This is the sensor tipped to be a 200MP periscope telephoto sensor by Digital Chat Station, another Weibo-based tipster. This is a huge upgrade, at least in terms of megapixels count. In comparison, the current-gen Vivo X90 Pro+ comes with a 64MP periscope telephoto sensor and the camera-beast Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra has a 10MP periscope telephoto sensor.

On the front side, the alleged X100 Pro+ is shown with a curved display panel featuring a centred punch-hole. There are minimal bezels on all four sides giving it a bezel-less look.

Vivo X100 Pro+ Specifications (Rumored)

A recent report talked about some of the Vivo X100 series specifications and release timeline. It claimed both Vivo X100 and Vivo X100 Pro will launch with MediaTek’s Dimensity 9300 processor. This is a flagship chip said to be manufactured using the 4nm process and to come with only powerful cores. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset is claimed to power the X100 Pro+ smartphone.

The X100 Pro is reported to come with a 1-inch primary camera sensor, similar to the X100 Pro+. The periscope telephoto sensor is said to get improvements in terms of optical zoom capabilities which we have talked about above. The smartphone is further said to have a glass body and support for 100W fast charging technology.

Vivo is expected to unveil the X100 series during the fourth quarter of the year but the X100 Pro+ could get an early 2024 release.
