Chinese smartphone maker Vivo has announced its first foldable smartphone: Vivo X Fold. Only the name is not a little creative; The design is also very familiar to us.
The Oppo X Fold will not be released worldwide for now and will soon be sold to people in China only. While the device has a large 8.03-inch display when you open it, there is still a 6.53-inch screen on the front. Both displays support 120 Hertz and HDR10+.
In the middle of the giant is a hinge with which you can put the smartphone in different positions. You can place the device almost completely flat, with an almost emphasis. You can also easily leave it at 60 and 120 degree angles.
Another remarkable feature of the Vivo X Fold is that it has two fingerprint scanners. These browsers are on both screens, so it doesn’t matter how you use the device. You can safely unlock everything from either screen.
There is also ‘ultra-thin glass’ on the inside of the screen. We’ve heard this story before at Samsung, and it’s not surprising; Both manufacturers use the same technology. You can fold the screen about 300,000 times.
A typical Vivo flagship
In other areas, we’re dealing with what we might classify as a typical Vivo flagship. For example, under the hood is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor, up to 12GB of RAM and a maximum of 512GB of internal storage.
The battery with a capacity of 4,600 mAh can be charged at a rate of 66 watts. According to Vivo, the device fully charges in 36 minutes. You can also charge wirelessly at 55 watts and reverse charging is also available at 10 watts.
On the back we see four cameras. There is a fifty-megapixel main camera with optical image stabilization. Alongside the twelve-megapixel camera that optically zooms twice, there’s also a 48-megapixel wide-angle lens and a periscope camera for fivex zoom.
It is not yet clear whether Vivo will launch this device outside of China. But if that’s the case, be prepared to dig deep. The converted X Fold has a price tag of more than 1,300 euros, and yes, that’s excluding the 21 percent VAT on it.
