Vivo Launches State-of-the-Art Camera System in X100 Ultra Flagship

As a competitor to the Apple iPhone 16 Pro Max, Google Pixel 8 Pro, Huawei Pura 70 Ultra, and other devices, Vivo has formally introduced the X100 Ultra in China.

At CNY 6,499 (about $898), the new Android phone is being heralded as the company’s greatest camera flagship to yet.

On its back panel, the X100 Ultra features a 1/1.4-inch telephoto sensor, a first for the industry.

X100 Ultra features high-end camera specs

Co-developed with Samsung, the 200MP HP9 telephoto sensor on the X100 Ultra has an f/2.67 aperture and an equivalent focal length of 85mm.

A 50MP Sony LYT-900 primary camera and a 50MP LYT-600 ultrawide camera round out this sensor.

To improve its camera skills even more, the phone has a 50MP selfie camera.

X100 Ultra’s telephoto sensor offers advanced imaging capabilities

With ZEISS T coating and ZEISS APO certification, the 200MP telephoto sensor of the X100 Ultra guarantees high-quality photos with less glare and fringe.

The periscope sensor has an industry-best CIPA 4.5 stabilisation system and 3.7x optical zoom.

Additionally, this is Vivo’s first Android phone to feature the BlueImage algorithm, which purportedly fixes typical image-capturing problems like controlling lighting behind focused subjects and maintaining details in low light.

X100 Ultra boasts high-end specifications beyond camera

In addition to its exceptional camera capabilities, the X100 Ultra is equipped with a 6.78-inch E7 LTPO AMOLED display that has a resolution of 1440×3200 pixels and a peak brightness of 3,000 nits, both from Qualcomm.

A 5,500mAh battery that can be charged physically (80W) or wirelessly (30W) powers the device.

It is powered by OriginOS 4, an Android 14-based operating system, and it can communicate via two-way satellite in China in addition to 5.5G.

X100 Ultra available in two variants with optional camera kit

The X100 Ultra comes in two flavours: CNY 6,499 (about $898) for the entry-level model with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, and CNY 7,999 (roughly $1,105) for the top model with 16GB of RAM and 1TB of storage.

For CNY 350 (about $48), Vivo now sells an optional SmallRig camera kit that turns an Android phone into a DSLR-like gadget.

Vivo hasn’t yet disclosed the cost or availability for overseas markets, though.
