Vivo X100 Ultra w/ 200MP Periscope beats Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra



Vivo X100 Ultra

Vivo X100 Ultra is officially launched to challenge Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra with a 200MP Periscope camera. Specs-wise, this smartphone outpaces Samsung’s latest Galaxy S24 Ultra in terms of imaging capabilities, thanks to the custom Periscope sensor.

The new Vivo X100 Ultra comes with a 1-inch Sony LYT-900 main camera, and a 200MP periscope camera leveraging the 1/1.4″ ISOCELL HP9 sensor co-developed with Samsung. It’s notably the largest telephoto sensor fitted on a phone to date.

The Periscope introduces f/2.67 aperture and an 85mm equivalent focal length. Following its collaboration, Vivo brought Zeiss T* coating and Zeiss APO certification to the X100 Ultra, as part of delivering improved clarity and less fringing at contrast edges.

This monstrous zoom camera brings up to 3.7x optical zoom and 20% improved light sensitivity. Its telephoto macro (a.k.a. telemacro) mode offers 20x magnification. The company also introduced its BlueImage algorithm which was in development for eight years.
