by Warren

Smartphone cameras have thrived so much over the years, as we have seen so many different approaches by others to offer the best camera system to consumers and prosumers, but once again, the recently launched vivo X100 series in Malaysia is set to redefine the smartphone photography experience, especially with the all-new ZEISS APO Telephoto Floating Camera.

Let’s find out what makes the vivo X100 Pro so compelling this time.

For starters, the vivo X100 series feature an all-new elegant premium build with a signature Sun Halo design on the back, along with a huge camera ring dominating the upper part that makes it look like a professional camera when held on hand.

The vivo X100 Pro is available in Startrail Blue and Asteroid Black colors, while the vivo X100 comes is only available in Startrail Blue color.

Powering the vivo X100 Pro is two class-leading chipsets, the Mediatek Dimensity 9300 and vivo V3 chips, paired to 16GB RAM and 512GB of storage, these two chipsets are crucial to the phone’s user experience but more importantly, the latter is dedicated to handle the image processing of the cameras and introduces new capabilities all thanks to a more efficient 6nm process.

For instance, the vivo V3 chip complements the Mediatek Dimensity 9300 chipset by enhancing visuals in games, capable of interpolating gameplay frame rates up to 120fps, it ensures buttery smooth frame rates in games that can’t take advantage of the LTPO panel’s refresh rate by intelligently compensating choppy frames, this reduces user fatigue in games when playing for long hours.

The vivo V3 chip also enables 4K Cinematic Portrait Video with various templates and real-time scene optimization, users can also perform post edits on the vivo X100 Pro effortlessly, this cannot be achieved on many flagship phones and can bring out the best of your subject when shooting videos with the phone’s main camera.

Despite that, no camera experience is great without the right camera system and vivo understands that, which is why the vivo X100 Pro has been fitted with three 50-megapixel cameras at the back with an upgraded ZEISS T* glass coating that further prevents glare and enhances clarity up to 20% compared to the vivo X90 Pro.

The main camera sensor continues to be a ZEISS-certified 1-inch Sony IMX989 camera and is complemented by a new ZEISS APO Telephoto camera, which is a new and exclusive hardware developed between ZEISS and vivo, and a super wide-angle camera, and between the three of them, the ZEISS APO Telephoto camera stands out the most as it brings a new perspective to portrait and telephotography.

The ZEISS APO telephoto camera also features a ‘Floating Elements’ Design that optimizes the alignment and distance between each lens or lens group, forming a segmented periscope structure that further improves focusing performance, this ensures that a distant shot stays vivid and realistic.
