The phone packs ZEISS camera with the Industry’s Largest Sensor – Sony’s IMX989 sensor with Zeiss T* coating, and promises SLR-level Image Stabilization co-engineered with ZEISS.

In addition, there are unique ZEISS Style portraits like Distagon, B-Speed, Biotar, Planar, and Sonnar that have different background bokeh/blur effects for different scenarios.

The X100 series supports five golden focal lengths for portraits and combines each with the ZEISS Style Portrait to meet the diverse
needs for everyday life and travel photography.

Here are some camera samples that show the phone’s portrait camera in action.

Telephoto Sunshot

Thanks to the telephoto hardware and vivo Imaging Engine, X100 Pro is calibrated for scenes like sunrises and sunsets, by enhancing the warm tones and ensuring vibrant colors. With X100 Pro, capturing sun shots is a lot easier.

This offers the full power of the X100 Pro’s sun-capturing prowess within the 10x-30x zoom range. This sweet spot unlocks the most dramatic and detailed solar close-ups, bringing you closer to the sun’s captivating brilliance.



The Telephoto camera can go up to 100X for some really interesting zoom shots


The vivo X100 Pro cameras pack a lot of interesting features, and we would be sharing more in the coming days in our complete review.
