Xperia 1 VI, 10 VI, vivo X100s, X100s Pro and X100s Ultra official, week 20 review – news

It was a big week in terms of announcements. Sony kicked things off with the announcements of the Xperia 1 VI and the Xperia 10 VI. The Xperia 1 VI does away with the 4K display, but makes up for it with a brighter and smarter 1080p panel and increases the zoom range on the telephoto module to 170mm. Sony’s flagship also packs a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3, a 5,000mAh battery that puts most other flagships to shame, and a cool, distinctive design. The phone is coming in June, starting at €1,399, and we have the review.

The Xperia 1 VI threw away what it didn’t need and made the rest better. Available in June for €1,399.

We are now just a few hours away from the official unveiling.

No, the Xperia 5 VI probably won’t be there, but the changes to the Xperia 1 VI alone should be enough to carry the show.

Sony is finally ditching the 21:9 ratio in favor of the more common 19.5:9 aspect.

The Google Pixel 9 series leaked in hands-on photos. The leak details the trio of new Pixels: a regular compact 9 with two cameras, a compact Pro with three cameras, and the Pro XL with three cameras. Expect all three with Google’s Tensor G4, sensors all 50 MP and lots of AI smarts this fall.

Vivo’s X100 series is here. The X100 Ultra is obviously the best. It has a 1-inch LYT-900 main sensor and an even more impressive 200 MP periscope camera that uses the 1/1.4″ ISOCELL HP9 sensor developed in collaboration with Samsung. The 1/1.4″ sensor The periscope camera has the largest telephoto sensor mounted on a phone to date. It has an aperture of f/2.67 and a focal length of 85mm. It also gets a Zeiss T* coating and a Zeiss APO certification, which should translate to improved brightness and reduced fringing on contrast edges up to 3.7x optical zoom, 20% improved light sensitivity and the telephoto macro mode offers 20x magnification . You also get industry-leading CIPA 4.5 telephoto stabilization.

Apart from the cameras, the It starts at CNY 6,499 ($898), but it won’t leave China.

The vivo X100s and X100s Pro bring the Dimensity 9300+ SoC with a 3.4GHz prime Cortex-X4 core. The vivo X100s Pro combines its chipset with the vivo V3 display chip, while the vanilla model still uses the older V2 chip. The X100s Pro has a 1/0.98” main sensor with an f/1.75” lens (1G+7P) and OIS. It is accompanied by a 50 MP ultra-wide angle (1/2.76”, f/2.0, 15mm) and a 50 MP periscope with an OIS floating lens design (1/2”, f/2.5, 4.3x) . The X100s gets a smaller main module of 50 MP (f/1.57”) and an ultra-wide 50 MP. The telephoto camera has a periscope design with a 50 MP sensor (f/2.57, 3x). Both phones have 32MP selfie cameras with f/2.0 lens.

The vivo

These should become official in October.

The 1/1.4″ ISOCELL HP9 sensor, developed in collaboration with Samsung, is the largest telephoto sensor mounted on a smartphone to date.

The vanilla X100s also has a larger battery than the original X100 (despite being thinner than it) thanks to improvements in battery technology.

Finally, the Galaxy S25 Ultra will likely ditch the dedicated 3x zoom camera and replace it with an in-sensor zoom option of the 200MP main camera. The 3x is the smallest sensor on the back of the Galaxy S24 Ultra and it made sense for it to be upgraded or removed. Unfortunately it is the latter.

Finally, Poco confirmed that the F6 and F6 Pro will release on May 23.

It will be replaced by supposedly better software processing.

The two phones will be launched on May 23.

The flagship killers of 2024 are coming.
