The X100 is thought to launch as the vanilla variant of Vivo's next-gen Android smartphone flagship series. Nevertheless, it is also now backed to debut with a groundbreaking feature: Low Power Double Data Rate 5 Turbo (or LPDDR5T) RAM, touted to be up to 13% faster than its top-end LPDDR5X counterpart. The world-first upgrade is tipped to reach a new performance peak when combined with the new Dimensity 9300 flagship SoC from MediaTek.

It seems the Vivo X100 series will inevitably lose the race to become the world's next premium-grade Android smartphones; however, it might have won the LPDDR5T sprint. This new type of RAM for mobile devices from SK Hynix is now slated to make its debut as the next big thing rather than the usual top-tier LPDDR5X.

LPDDR5T is touted to come with speed boosts of up to 13% compared to its 5X counterpart, thereby raising it to the top of the mobile RAM charts from its debut. The famous leaker Digital Chat Station has hinted that all Vivo X100-series variants might feature this upgrade.

Some of those smartphones (most likely the X100 Pro Plus) are tipped to launch with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor, although SK Hynix has indicated that its new RAM is optimized for the Dimensity 9300 platform. Therefore, that might, ironically enough, confer an exclusive "new performance triangle" of this SoC, LPDDR5T and fast UFS 4.0 storage on the vanilla X100 and X100 Pro.
