vivo X100s and X100s Pro with Dimensity 9300+ and flat display are here

Thanks to improvements in battery technology, the vivo X100s and vivo X100s Pro have a little more endurance.
vivo X100s Pro

The vivo X100 Ultra, with its 200-megapixel periscope camera, attracted most of the attention, but it wasn’t alone. The Chinese also introduced the vivo X100s and X100s Pro with the new Dimensity 9300+ chipset. The original X100 series was introduced with the original 9300 chip. The 9300+ goes to 3.4 GHz (from 3.25 GHz) on the Cortex-X4 main core, increasing APU performance in AI tasks by 10%. However, the ARM Immortalis G720 GPU remains identical.

vivo X100s Pro

The vivo X100s Pro pairs its chipset with the vivo V3 imaging chip, while the base model continues to use the older V2 chip. As with the 2023 models, the Pro is equipped with a huge 1-inch Sony IMX989 image sensor, which can also be recognized by the larger camera module.

The vivo X100s Pro itself is slightly thicker and heavier at 8.91mm and 224g. However, it also has a slightly higher battery capacity compared to the basic model of 5,400 mAh. Charging takes place with 100 watts via USB-C and 50 watts wirelessly.

The vivo X100s also has a new 5,100 mAh battery (versus 5,000 mAh on the regular X100). This is thanks to second-generation silicon battery technology. The charging process is exclusively wired and also at 100 watts (compared to 120 watts for the original).

Still, the X100s is thinner (7.8mm) than the original X100 (8.5mm) and the X100s Pro. The weight is practically identical at 203 g.

An interesting development is that the two S-Phones have protection class IP69, where the 9 stands for resistance to strong jets of water at high temperatures. This is in addition to the IPX8 protection rating for immersion in water.

That’s it for the upgrades, the rest is as before. The two X100s models feature 6.78-inch LTPO OLED displays (1-120 Hz) with a resolution of 1,260 x 2,800 pixels and 10-bit color with 100% DCI-P3 coverage. They reach a peak brightness of 3,000 nits and use 2,160 Hz high-frequency PWM dimming. vivo has developed a pixel compensation technology that promises to extend the life of its displays by more than 2 times.

The vivo X100s Pro relies on the aforementioned 1-inch main sensor with an f/1.75-inch lens (1G+7P) and OIS. There is also a 50 megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens (1/2.76 inch, f/2.0, 15 mm) and a 50 megapixel periscope with OIS and floating lens (1/2, f/2.5, 4.3x) . The normal X100s gets a smaller 50-megapixel main camera (f/1.57 inches) and a 50-megapixel ultra-wide-angle module. The telephoto camera has a periscope design with also 50 megapixels (f/2.57, 3x). Both smartphones also have 32 megapixel selfie cameras with f/2.0 lenses.

The vivo X100s and X100s Pro are available in titanium, white and black/dark gray. The basic version is also available in turquoise. Prices start from the base model with 12/256GB for CNY 4,000 (€509/$555) and end with the vivo X100s Pro with 16GB/1TB for CNY 6,200 (€789/$860).
