Vivo is said to be preparing for the launch of the flagship Vivo X100 series, which will succeed the Vivo X90 series that featured the X90, X90 Pro, and X90 Pro Plus 5G.
The Chinese multinational company has not yet announced the official launch date of the X100 series but is most likely to release it in the second half of 2023.
Like the X90 lineup, the Vivo X100 series is also expected to come with three models: the Vivo X100, X100 Pro, and X100 Pro Plus.
The Vivo X100 series is said to come with exceptional camera features and the Vivo X100 Pro Plus 5G camera specifications have now been leaked by tipster Panda is Bald ahead of its launch.
The specs were mentioned in a report by TechGoing that cited the tip.
Vivo X90 series is expected to launch soon in India. The company will launch the X90 and X90 Pro, which were unveiled in global markets earlier this year.
The X90 Pro Plus 5G, which is currently exclusive to China, is unlikely to launch in India.
Vivo is yet to confirm the official launch date of the X90 series.
While we wait for that, a new leak has revealed some details about the next-generation X series flagship phones from Vivo.
The upcoming top-end Vivo flagship might be called the X100 Pro Plus 5G. The device will debut as a successor to the X90 Pro Plus 5G in China. It is expected to launch in the second half of 2023.
Months ahead of the debut, a new leak has revealed the alleged camera details of the X100 Pro Plus.Let’s take a look at the Vivo X100Pro Plus 5G specifications, features and other details known so far.
Vivo X100 Pro+ camera specs (tipped)
The leak suggests that the Vivo X100 Pro Plus+ come with support for a variable aperture.
This kind of tech was earlier featured by a few smartphones, however, it didn’t gain as much success in the market. Consequentially, it was discontinued and companies started launching smartphones with fixed apertures ranging from f1/.5 to f/1.8.
A variable aperture allows smartphone users to adjust the main camera aperture in a manual way to control the level of light entering the camera via the sensor.
The report also stated that the Vivo X100 Pro Plus will also come with a periscope telephoto lens, enabling users to experience an enhanced zoom camera to take detailed zoomed shots, even in low light.
In addition to this, the smartphone will feature a V3 image signal processor that will help in experiencing better photography and graphics.
Further, an ultra-wide free-form surface lens will enable the X100 Pro Plus 5G users to take wider and clearer shots like for clicking wide landscapes or large group photos.
The tipster claims a portrait micro-cloud platform as yet another feature of the smartphone.
As per him, this platform uses an advanced algorithm to create stunning portrait shots with exceptional detail and clarity.

Faqs on Vivo X100 Pro Plus
1) Vivo X100 Pro Plus Camera: What is Known So Far?
Ans) The Vivo X100 Pro Plus will be the next-generation top-end smartphone from the company. Its camera specs have leaked ahead of the launch.
The report by TechGoing, citing a Weibo post by tipster Panda is Bald, has revealed the specs of the X100 Pro Plus 5G.
The tipster claimed that the upcoming Vivo X series flagship phone in China will offer support for a variable aperture.
The feature will allow users to manually adjust the aperture of the main camera to control the amount of light hitting the sensor.
We have seen the tech being added to some smartphones years ago. However, the feature did not pick up well in the industry and was soon replaced by phone cameras with a fixed aperture mostly ranging between f1/.5 and f/1.8.
The report also revealed that the X100 Pro Plus 5G will have an ultra-wide free-form surface lens, which will allow for wider and clearer shots.
There will also be a feature called the portrait micro-cloud platform that seems to use advanced algorithms to create stunning portrait shots with exceptional detail and clarity.
Vivo will feature a periscope camera lens for an enhanced zoom camera performance, especially in low light.
There will be a new V3 ISP packed inside the phone, which will help boost the camera performance.
The report did not specify the camera sensor details. It would not be a surprise if the X100 Pro Plus continues to feature a 1-inch camera sensor, which is currently the biggest smartphone camera sensor found in devices worldwide.
The X90 Pro Plus, which is yet to make it to global markets, has a 50MP 1-inch Sony IMX989 main camera sensor.
The quad-camera setup also features a 48MP Sony IMX598 ultrawide sensor, a 50MP Sony IMX758 f/1.6 portrait sensor and a 64MP OmniVision OV64B40 telephoto camera with up to 100x digital zoom.
The handset sports a 6.78-inch AMOLED display with a QHD+ resolution display. There is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC under the hood and a 4,700mAh battery.
The phone supports 80W wired and 50W wireless charging.
2) How is Vivo X100 Pro Plus 5G camera setup ?
Ans) Vivo X100 Pro Plus 5G will feature a super ultra-wide free-form lens, which should help capture wider, clearer shots. The phone is also said to feature some form of “portrait micro-cloud platform”.
The tipster did not share any details about the same, but we suspect that the feature might use Artificial Intelligence (Al) to enhance portrait mode shots.
Lastly, the camera setup is also said to feature a periscope telephoto lens with macro shooting capabilities.
The periscope camera is also likely to offer better performance in low-light.
