Vivo X100 Ultra with Satellite Communication Launching Soon

In November, Vivo introduced the Vivo X100 and X100 Pro smartphones in China, both powered by the Dimensity 9300 chipset. Despite expectations from fans for the Vivo X100 Pro+ to launch alongside the X100 and X100 Pro with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip, the company did not reveal it then. Recent reports indicate that this particular phone might be rebranded as the Vivo X100 Ultra and is anticipated to make its debut in the second quarter of this year. Huang Tao, Vivo's Vice President for Product, confirmed on Weibo that the company is preparing to release phones with satellite communication capabilities, hinting at the imminent launch of the X100 Ultra.

Vivo's Foray into Satellite Communication

Rumors have circulated that the Vivo X100 Ultra will integrate the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chip with two-way satellite communication functionality. This feature will position the smartphone to compete with counterparts such as the Find X7 Ultra and Xiaomi 14 Ultra that also support satellite connectivity.

In regions with limited traditional signal coverage like remote outdoor areas, forests, deserts, oceans, or mountains, direct satellite connections via mobile phones can be established for emergency communication, enhancing safety and accessibility in challenging environments.

Advanced Camera Capabilities of the X100 Ultra

The Vivo X100 Ultra is expected to sport a 50-megapixel LYT-900 primary camera with variable aperture and OIS support. The camera system is rumored to incorporate an ultra-wide lens, a telephoto camera, and a periscope telephoto camera. Notably, the periscope telephoto camera is speculated to deliver 200-megapixel resolution with 4.3x optical zoom, up to 200x digital zoom, and a 100mm focal length.

Aside from the X100 Ultra, Vivo is reportedly developing the X100s series of smartphones. Reports suggest that the X100s and X100s Pro will be powered by the upcoming Dimensity 9300+ chipset. There are indications that both the X100 Ultra and X100s series could make their debut in China by May.
