The Vivo X100 Ultra name was mentioned a number of times thus far, but it was never confirmed. Well, the company still didn’t confirm it, but a trusted source did.

The Vivo X100 Ultra name has just been confirmed… kind of

This information comes from Digital Chat Station, one of China’s most prominent tipsters. He says that the “name is confirmed”, so he probably received information from someone at the company.

In addition to that, he said that the phone will be launched next month, in May. That’s what was rumored too, so everything fits. It was initially expected in April, but things changed on Vivo’s part.

A Vice President of Product at Vivo, recently said that the company’s upcoming phone will be a “professional camera that can make calls”. He did not mention the Vivo X100 Ultra name, but everyone assumed it.

The phone is expected to include a new 200MP camera from Samsung

Also, Digital Chat Station recently said that the Vivo X100 Ultra will utilize Samsung’s new 200MP camera. The sensor in question is the S5KHP9. That sensor will likely be used for the telephoto camera.

This phone will be fueled by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, almost certainly, and it will include a ton of high-end specs. The Vivo X100 Pro is an outstanding flagship smartphone, but with the Vivo X100 Ultra, Vivo is looking to up the ante even more.

That phone will come with four cameras on the back, instead of three. It could also include a new main camera, the Sony LYT-900 sensor. The Vivo X100 Pro utilizes the Sony IMX989 sensor. Both of those are 1-inch sensors.

It will have four cameras on the back, but we still don’t know the exact setup

We still don’t know if the company will include a telephoto and a periscope telephoto camera on the back, or two periscope telephoto units like the OPPO Find X7 Ultra. It remains to be seen.

Blazing fast charging will also be included, both wired and wireless. Vivo could also offer some sort of satellite connectivity too, we’ll see.
