Vivo's new V30 Lite is an affordable mid-range smartphone


The price of flagship phones in recent years have gone up quite a bit where we're talking about paying over $1,000 for a smartphone that we would only use for a couple of years. If you'd rather not pay that much for a smartphone that you probably won't be using for a long time, then Vivo's new V30 Lite could be worth checking out.


This is a brand new mid-range handset from the Chinese maker. It will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 695 chipset and will come with 12GB of RAM, which is quite substantial for a mid-ranger. It will also pack 256GB of storage along with a 6.67-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with a refresh rate of 120Hz.


In the camera department, the Vivo V30 Lite will come with a triple camera setup which includes a 64MP main shooter with OIS, an 8MP ultrawide, and a 2MP depth sensor, and will be accompanied by a 50MP selfie camera. The Vivo V30 Lite will also come with a 4,800mAh battery with support for 44W charging speeds, an IP54 rating, and 5G connectivity.


As for pricing, the Vivo V30 Lite will be priced at around $530. For now, the handset seems to be only available in Mexico and it is unclear when or whether or not it will be hitting global markets.

Vivo X100 Pro Plus rumor: 200MP periscope telephoto camera with 10x optical and 200x digital zoom

A couple of weeks ago Vivo had the Vivo X100 ad Vivo X100 Pro introduced globally. Around April next year, we should see Vivo make the X100 Pro Plus official. According to a post made by leaker Digital Chat Station on China's Weibo social-media site, the top-of-the-line model will feature a 200MP periscope telephoto that delivers 10x optical zoom and up to 200x digital zoom.


The prototype currently being tested features a 4.3X optical zoom with a 100mm focal length thanks to a 1/1.5 inches sensor. The Vivo X100 Pro Plus is expected to be available with a 2K resolution display with the powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC under the hood. The under-display fingerprint sensor will use ultrasonic technology to make the biometric feature faster and more accurate.

The rear-facing camera array will be anchored by the 50MP primary camera backed by Sony's LYT-900 "one-inch type" sensor. The Vivo X100 Pro Plus has yet to be officially introduced unlike the Vivo X100 and X100 Pro. Both of these models are powered by the Dimensity 9300 application processor from MediaTek which has a configuration of four Prime Core Cortex-X4 CPU cores and four Cortex-A720 Performance CPU cores.


Without any low-power Efficiency CPU cores like the Cortex-A520, there has been some concern about the Dimensity 9300 experiencing thermal issues. This should be no issue at all for the Vivo X100 Pro Plus which, as we already noted, should be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset. Another report says that the Vivo X100 Pro Plus base model will feature 12GB of RAM along with 512GB of native storage.


Vivo is one of several smartphone brands owned by China's BBK Electronics. Other brands owned by the firm include Oppo, OnePlus, Realme, and iQOO. Vivo hopes to position the X100 Pro Plus as a game-changing device redefining the capabilities of what such a device can do when it comes to performance and mobile photography.

Under Pressure: Vivo'x X100 Throttles just After 2 Minutes in Performance Test


A while back, Vivo announced the arrival of its new flagship phone, the Vivo X100. The handset carries the highly-anticipated Dimensity 9300 chipset, MediaTek's new premium mobile SoC and a major competitor to rival chips such as the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3.


With that in mind, while the chipset holds a lot of promise, it seems that early testing with the X100 has yielded some rather concerning results, especially for fans looking forward to getting their hands on the 9300. It's reported that recent testing with the X100 (and subsequently the Dimensity 9300) resulted in the X100's vapor chamber - which is essentially its cooling system - to fold in just around two minutes, with the Dimensity 9300 losing up to 46% of its performance.



This drop in performance is attributed to the 9300's architecture, which does not include efficiency cores. Instead, the chipset features four high-performance cores, which is one of its biggest differences in comparison with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3. As a result, even the X100's cooling solution wasn't able to keep up with the tremendous draw in power that the 9300 exhibited, a shown in the CPU stress test.


Given all this, it should be interesting to see how the Dimensity 9300 fares in the long run, as more testing and more market-ready products arrive in the coming months.

Vivo X100 Pro shows up in official pictures ahead of launch


With about a week left until vivo's big event where the company is expected to take the wraps off the vivo X100 series, the better device of the two that are to be unveiled next week has just popped up in official pictures.


We've been reporting about the vivo X100 since the Chinese company confirmed it will announce its new flagship on November 13. However, previous rumors claimed the X100 Pro model won't hit shelves until early next year, which doesn't seem to be accurate.


Earlier today, vivo published a bunch of official pictures of the vivo X100 Pro, one of the flagships that will be introduced next week. In addition, video teaser showing some of the most important technical specs has been posted on Chinese microblogging website Weibo.


Vivo X100 Pro shows up in official pictures ahead of launch


Thanks to all the marketing material revealed today, most of the previous reports about the vivo X100's specs have been confirmed. For starters, both the vivo X100 and X100 Pro will be equipped with MediaTek's Dimensity 9300 chipset.


Also, the X100 Pro will feature a same powerful triple camera that includes a 1-inch main sensor, a 64-megapixel periscope module, and Vario-Apo-Sonnar lenses.


Another new piece of information is the confirmed color options: Star Trail Blue, Sunset Orange, White Moonlight, and Chenye Black. More importantly, the price of the base 12/256GB vivo X100 has been posted on vivo's website and it's looking pretty good: CNY 3,999 ($550).


Sadly, vivo's flagships are likely to be exclusively available in China, so don't get your hopes too high if you're considering one (unless you live in the Mainland).

Vivo's upcoming flagship gets its insides revealed thanks to recent benchmark


Vivo was one of the biggest brands in China until Honor became the number one handset manufacturer in the country. That doesn't necessarily mean that the company lost its mojo, especially considering what Vivo has in the pipeline next.


As we reported early this week, Vivo confirmed its new flagship will be officially introduced on November 13. The company even published a picture of the phone to hype the upcoming event.


Since we already had reports that shed light on the Vivo X100's specs, it's probably no surprise that the phone is going to use one of MediaTek's powerful chipsets.


For those who haven't read any of the previous reports regarding Vivo X100's hardware, here is what a Geekbench list revealed (via MySmartPrice). As mentioned earlier, the X100 will be powered by MediaTek's Dimensity 9300 processor, paired with 12GB of RAM.


Also, the benchmark reveals that Vivo X100 will ship with Android 14 right out of the box. Well, not Google's clean of Android 14, but one specifically developed by Vivo called Origin OS 4.


That's about all we get from Geekbench, but previous leaks suggest Vivo's flagship will pack a triple camera featuring a Sony IMX920 main sensor and a Samsung ISOCELL JN1 wide-angle sensor.


We also know the phone's 5,000 mAh battery will support 120W fast charging. While Vivo X100 will be officially introduced in China next week, it's unlikely that this will be available in Europe or North America.
