Upcoming Vivo X100 Pro smartphone set to be special, here is why
Get ready for the latest Vivo X100 Pro phone! It is rumoured to bring satellite messaging and impressive camera features. Exciting details ahead.
In a bid to redefine the boundaries of smartphone connectivity, Vivo is set to introduce its latest offering, the Vivo X100 series, in China. As a successor to the X90 series, which made its debut in November last year, the much-anticipated Vivo X100 series is expected to feature three flagship smartphones: Vivo X100, Vivo X100 Pro, and Vivo X100 Pro+. Though the official launch date remains shrouded in secrecy, leaks and rumours surrounding the Vivo X100 Pro and X100 Pro+ have been gaining momentum, shedding light on some intriguing new capabilities - most notably, the addition of satellite connectivity.
Mobile Satellite connectivity
Satellite connectivity is rapidly emerging as a pivotal feature in the realm of smartphones, and a recent report from the leakster, WhyLab, strongly suggests that the forthcoming Vivo X100 Pro might incorporate satellite messaging functionality. Adding weight to this speculation, China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) has recently granted certification to the X100 Pro, bearing the model number V2309A, with one particular standout feature on the spec sheet: two-way satellite messaging. This groundbreaking feature is set to empower the X100 Pro, enabling it to transmit and receive text messages, images, voice recordings, and even videos in regions devoid of Wi-Fi or conventional cellular connectivity, GSMarena reported.
According to the latest reports, the X100 Pro will boast the MediaTek Dimensity 9300 chipset, coupled with a dedicated Unisoc V8821 chip exclusively designed to manage satellite connectivity. Previous leaks have hinted at a 53-megapixel 1/1.43-inch primary sensor for the device's main camera.

The highly-anticipated Vivo X100 series is rumoured to make its grand entrance in China next month, featuring a trio of models spanning from the X100 to the X100 Pro+.
