Qualcomm’s latest batch and a known format

Vivo X Fold

The Vivo X Fold is the Chinese manufacturer’s first commitment to the folding segment. We are facing a phone that, folded, has measurements of 162 x 74.5 x 14.6 mm. When unfolded it goes to 162 x 144.9 x 6.3 mm, doubling its width. We are thus facing a large terminal, more than 16 centimeters high, and weighing 311 grams (quite achieved for the type of terminal).

Vivo’s X Fold is a folding book type with a slightly curved panel on the outside

The fold is similar to what is seen in Samsung’s Fold proposals. A quite vertical terminal when we use it folded, and that goes into a tablet format when we unfold it. The interior panel is 8.03 inches, with a resolution of 1916 x 2160 pixels and AMOLED technology. The refresh rate is 120Hz.

The battery is 4,600mAh, with a fast charge of 66W and the promise of a full charge in 37 minutes. Wireless charging is 50W and reversible wireless charging is 10W.

The folding ones, in general, were leaving the photographic section aside. It is not the case of this Vivo. The commitment in this model is for a quad camera, with two telephoto lenses and an ultra wide angle. This is the camera configuration:

  • 50 megapixel main sensor.
  • 8 megapixel periscopic sensor, OIS, 5x zoom.
  • 12 megapixel telephoto sensor, two magnifications.
  • 48 megapixel ultra wide angle sensor.

The lenses are signed by Zeiss and video recording is up to 8K. A clear commitment to be the foldable with the best photography.

Versions and price of the Vivo X Fold

The Vivo X Fold has been put up for sale in China at a price of around 1,300 euros. In case of arriving in Europe, the price would increase after taxes and fees. These are the prices and versions in your native country.
