Vivo formally unveiled its first folding smartphone in April of last year. The Chinese company, which had first struggled to develop a name for its new product, eventually settled on the moniker used by its Korean rival’s folding phones.
As its name suggests, the X Fold resulted from Vivo’s sincere intention to treat the market for foldable smartphones seriously. A few days ago, the new folding smartphone was prematurely presented in photos, allowing for a complete.
A direct descendant of the X Fold, this new model aims to provide hardware updates worthy of the moniker. First, the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 will replace the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 in the X Fold+. The new chipset will provide a 10% improvement in performance while using 30% less energy.
The battery should see a substantial increase in autonomy, particularly considering that the smartphone’s capacity has increased to 4,730 mAh.The smartphone will also support rapid wireless charging at 50 W if it has an 80 W cable charger.
It will also use OLED technology, an 8-inch foldable display constructed of very thin glass, with a refresh rate of 120 Hz that can decrease to 1 Hz. Additionally, the displays will each use ultrasonic fingerprint scanners for the first time on a folding smartphone.
Regarding photography, we may anticipate a 50-megapixel module on the rear, a 48-megapixel super wide-angle camera, and two telephoto lenses. The price of the Vivo Fold+ will start at 1,450 euros on September 29 for the variant with 256 GB of storage and 12 GB of RAM. To get the 512 GB version, you must shell out a minimum of 1,600 euros.
The smartphone will only be sold in China, but we will notify you once its details go global
