Chinese electronics manufacturer Vivo has now introduced its first foldable mobile phone in the form of the vertically foldable Vivo X Fold. The phone has a 6.53-inch external screen, as well as a foldable screen to be 8.03 inches in extended mode. Both screens support 120Hz and a built-in fingerprint reader. The foldable screen uses Ultra Thin Glass, UTG, similar to what Samsung uses in its foldable mobile phones, but according to Vivo, its variant must withstand up to 300,000 times. It also has a hinge that allows the screens to be folded flat against each other without any gaps on the sides.
Inside is a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor along with 12GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage. The 4600’s battery should keep the phone alive, and it also handles 50W fast wireless charging and 66W wire charging.
There are a total of six camera lenses on the Vivo X Fold. Four on the back – a 50MP primary lens complimented by a 48MP wide angle, 12MP 2x telephoto and 8MP 5x periscope. In addition, both screens have a 16-megapixel photo camera installed in a hole in each screen.
At the moment, the Vivo X Fold is only available in China at 8,999 JPY, which is just over 13,500 SEK, when translated directly.
