Vivo presents the X Fold, its first foldable smartphone


Expected in the field of foldable smartphones, a trend that has been announced for years, the Vivo brand presents its first model of its kind in China. It responds to the name of X Fold.

For its first foldable smartphone, Vivo puts the small dishes into the big ones. The X Fold aims to be ultra premium and present a technical sheet without compromise, or almost. The device is in the “book” format which can be seen on Z-fold from Samsung in particular and therefore offers two screens as such.

The folding screen of the Vivo X Fold reveals a diagonal of 8.03 inches, making it one of the largest devices at the moment. It also measures 162.01 x 144.9 x 6.28 mm when open and weighs just 311 grams, making it stand out as the heaviest in its category. To forgive, the smartphone offers an LTPO panel of 2160 x 1916 pixels with a refresh rate of up to 120 Hz. The flexibility, combined with the manufacturer-designed hinge, is designed to limit the space between the two parts. folded screen. Outside, the smartphone has another AMOLED panel, this time 6.53 inches (2530 x 1080 pixels) and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. A Gorilla Glass Victus window protects this screen, which hides a fingerprint reader, as does its folding sidekick.

Among these two displays, Vivo has retained Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip, accompanied by 12 GB of RAM, 256 GB to 512 GB storage space, and a 4600 mAh battery. It is compatible with 66W wired charging and 50W wireless charging.

Vivo also bets on one of its strong points, photography, by opting for a 50-megapixel main sensor (Samsung GN1, with f/1.57 optics and stabilization), another 48-megapixel (ultra wide angle), a third of 12 Mpx with a 2x zoom and a last of 8 Mpx with a 5x periscope zoom. The result is a particularly impressive photo block.

For now, this Vivo X Fold, all in all very promising, will be announced only in China, starting from 8999 yuan (about 1300 € excluding taxes) and it is unlikely that it will be marketed in France. While waiting for the brand to expand its hexagonal catalog, it is better to go to a much more traditional V23which is expected to go on sale before the end of April.

The battery from 5000 mAh, in turn, is associated with a fast charge of 80 W. Resolutely high-end, the smartphone is announced from 5999 yuan in China, or almost 870 € excluding taxes.
