Vlad, 13 April 2024

vivo's X100 Pro is already an amazing cameraphone, one of the best launched in the past few months. But it's not enough for the Chinese company - it wants to push the envelope even further. And, in fact, according to its vice president of Product, Huang Tao, vivo is currently working on a new smartphone that will be "a professional camera that can make calls" (quote machine translated from Chinese).

This device will most likely be called X100 Ultra, and it's being talked about a lot on Weibo these days under the codename Thanos. The vivo exec took to the Chinese social network to thank people for their huge levels of interest in the upcoming smartphone, and announce that the X100 Ultra will be arriving at some point in the near future. Rumor has it that means next month.

If the idea behind this is indeed to create a "professional camera" with a smartphone attached to it, then color us intrigued and excited to see it in person and test it. vivo has already proven that it has the expertise to create outstanding cameraphones, and if this will be the pinnacle of what the company can achieve, then we're all for it.

The X100 Ultra has been rumored to sport a Quad HD+ E7 AMOLED display with a 120 Hz refresh rate, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset at the helm, a 50 MP main camera using Sony's Lytia LYT-900 sensor, as well as an ultrawide, telephoto, and an additional 200 MP periscope telephoto with 100mm equivalent focal length for 4.3x optical zoom, and 200x digital zoom. The handset should also sport satellite connectivity.
