Taking into account this introduction to the two devices, we are going to see their features in detail. First the more important of the two, the vivo X Fold. At the design level, it is a folding book type and, therefore, It has a 6.53-inch external AMOLED screen with Full HD + resolution and 120 Hz refresh rate.
The internal screen is also AMOLED and its resolution increases to QHD+, which will be appreciated for the extra pixels on the 8-inch panel it mounts, nor does it forget the 120 Hz as refreshment rate. The potential of this internal panel is in its durability since it will be able to resist up to 300,000 folds, as vivo comments.
To get an idea of durability, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 stayed at 200,000 folds. And, logically, the vivo terminal does not forget the IP68 resistance to dust and water. Inside what is found is the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 accompanied by 12 GB of RAM and with memory options of 256 GB or 512 GB.
The main camera modules are located on the rear of the device. The main sensor is 50 megapixels, the secondary is a 48 megapixel wide angle and the next two are 12 megapixel and 8 megapixel telephoto lenses respectively.. The operating system is Android 12 under OriginOS.
The other device that has been launched is an 11-inch tablet with an LCD panel that packs a QHD+ resolution and a refresh rate of 120 Hz. Its interior is signed by the Snapdragon 870 along with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB 256 GB of storage for data, in addition to an 8,040 mAh battery with 44W fast charge.
Price and availability of vivo X Fold and vivo Pad
Both the vivo Pad and the vivo X Fold have been presented today so there are no more rumors to read about it, the only downside is that they have been launched in China and, therefore, the prices we have are currency conversions to euros. In the vivo X Fold the change places the price from 1,300 euros.
The vivo Pad would cost 450 euros to change, so it would be above the most basic iPad of this generation.
