The Vivo X100 Ultra is the company’s upcoming flagship, and it could use Samsung’s new 200MP camera. In fact, this camera is not even official, but it’s expected to launch in the near future.

The Vivo X100 Ultra is expected to use Samsung’s new 200MP camera

This is based on a report by Digital Chat Station, one of the best-known tipsters around. He claims that the Vivo X100 Ultra will use the Samsung S5KHP9 camera, which is a 200MP camera.

The tipster did not go into specifics on it, but the tipster says that “the specifications are quite good”. He also said that this sensor can be used for both primary and secondary cameras. Chances are that Vivo will use it for the periscope telephoto camera, though, or something like that. Well, if it ends up using it at all.

The Vivo X100 Pro is the company’s current flagship and a truly powerful smartphone. The Vivo X100 Ultra is expected to trump it, though. It’s expected to ship with four rear-facing cameras.

This smartphone will be a “professional camera that can make calls”

The company’s Vice President of Product, Huang Tao, recently said that the company’s upcoming smartphone will be a “professional camera that can make calls”. He was almost certainly referring to the Vivo X100 Ultra.

The device is tipped to use the Sony LYT-900 camera sensor for its main camera. A 200-megapixel periscope telephoto camera will likely be included, and Samsung’s S5KHP9 sensor used. The other two cameras will likely be telephoto and ultrawide units. Well, unless Vivo ends up opting for two periscope telephoto cameras like the OPPO Find X7 Ultra.

The Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 will almost certainly fuel the Vivo X100 Ultra. We’re expecting a large AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, and a large battery too. Blazing fast charging will also be included, as will fast wireless charging.

This handset is expected to launch next month, but Vivo hasn’t really confirmed anything just yet.
