The Vivo X-series is traditionally known for launching excellent camera-focused smartphones. The Vivo X90 series was the latest iteration of this lineup, and Vivo now prepares for its next milestone under the Vivo X100 series. The next Vivo X100 Pro will be the brand’s most impressive device to the date in terms of camera. Vivo plans to increase the camera capabilities in this smartphone, and now we get the first details (Source) about the camera setup featured in the new flagship.

Vivo X100 Camera Features Tipped

The vivo X100 Pro will feature a 100mm periscope lens with a wide f/2.5 aperture tuned for low-light shooting. The module will also feature the OmniVision OV64B, a 64 MP 1/2″ sensor that has a 0.7um native pixels and support for 4-in-1 binning and native 2x digital crop. Furthermore, Vivo keeps its collaboration with Zeiss for the camera tuning. The device will use the Vario-Apo-Sonnar lenses an interesting technology that will boost the capabilities of this smartphone? Check out the explanation for more details.

Understanding the Vario-Apo-Sonnar Lenses within the Vivo X100

“Vario-Apo-Sonnar” refers to a type of camera lens standard designed by the renowned German optics manufacturer, Carl Zeiss. This lens design incorporates several optical features to deliver exceptional image quality and versatility for photographers and videographers. Let’s break down the term and its components:

Gizchina News of the week

  • Vario: The term “vario” indicates variability or variation. In the context of camera lenses, “vario” suggests that the lens has variable focal lengths or zoom capabilities. This allows the user to zoom in and out, adjusting the field of view without changing the lens itself.
  • Apo: “Apo” is short for “apochromatic,” which we discussed earlier. An apochromatic lens is designed to minimize chromatic aberration by bringing multiple wavelengths of light to a common focus point. This results in sharper, higher-quality images with reduced color fringing.
  • Sonnar: “Sonnar,” which is a specific type of lens design developed by Carl Zeiss. The Sonnar design is known for its excellent optical performance, compact size, and often wide maximum aperture. It has been used in various Zeiss lenses across different focal lengths.

Combining these elements, “Vario-Apo-Sonnar” refers to a lens that offers both variable focal lengths (zoom capabilities) and apochromatic correction, while also following the Sonnar lens design principles.

Besides the 64 MP main camera, the Vivo X100 Pro will also bring a 53 MP f 1/1.43″ sensor.

Other Details About the Vivo X100 series

The Vivo X100 series will feature a total of three smartphones. Namely, we expect the Vivo X100, X10 Pro, and the Vivo X100 Pro+. The Global Vivo X100 will sport the upcoming MediaTek Dimensity 9300, developed to compete with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. The Pro+ model will feature the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 and will also bring Vivo’s V3 ISP chip for the image processing tasks. The Pro+ will also bring an impressive 200 MP tele camera, a 1-inch IMX 989 50 MP camera.

iQOO 12 series to share similar specs

Interestingly, the iQOO sub-brand will also benefit from this technology. Vivo’s subsidiary is working on a telephoto camera similar to the X100 Pro. That sensor will also come with the iQOO 12 Pro which will use the OV64B inside its 5x periscope camera. It will come along a new 50 MP OV50H sensor. The regular iQOO 12 will have the same main sensor, but will skip the periscope sensor.

When the Vivo X100 series Will Arrive?

The Vivo X100 series will launch by the end of 2023, shortly after the release of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 and Dimensity 9300. The devices will hit the Chinese market first, and should be globally available by the first quarter of 2024. Considering the specs and the focus on camera, we are probably seeing the rise of the best Vivo X-series smartphones.
