Vivo has announced its latest flagship smartphone, the Vivo X100 Ultra, with a 1-inch Sony LYT-900 sensor on the 50MP main camera and an impressive 200MP periscope camera with a large 1/1.4” telephoto sensor.

The phone’s main camera has f/1.75 aperture and 23mm focal length. The X100 Ultra’s main camera features gimbal-level stabilisation. The telephoto camera lens is made with FCD100, an advanced low-dispersion material used for professional cameras. It features an f/2.67 aperture and an 85mm equivalent focal length. Additionally, it has Zeiss T* coating and Zeiss APO certification for improved clarity and less fringing at contrast edges. You get up to 3.7x optical zoom, 20% improved light sensitivity and its telephoto macro mode has up to 20x magnification.

The X100 Ultra also has a 14mm equivalent ultrawide camera and 50MP selfie camera. A street photography mode is included with five adjustable focal lengths: 24mm, 28mm, 35mm, 50mm, and 85mm. It offers several colour modes such as Zeiss Natural Colour and a new black and white option.
