The vivo X Fold is thus confirmed to have an 8-inch “2K” internal foldable display with a 120Hz refresh rate and LTPO 3.0 technology to vary said refresh rate, an external 6.53″ FHD+ 120Hz display , the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chipset at the helm, LPDDR5 memory, UFS 3.1 storage, Android 12 on board, and a 4,600mAh battery with support for 66W wired and 50W wireless charging.

The phone comes with a quad rear camera setup with Zeiss branding and T* coating, with a 50MP Samsung GN5 primary snapper with OIS. The rest of the cameras are a 48MP ultrawide with a 114-degree field of view, a 12MP portrait lens (which we consider 2x zoom), and a 5MP 60x OIS periscope camera. Wi-Fi 6 and NFC are also confirmed inside the vivo X Fold.

The materials further mention that the X Fold’s screen has tied or broken 19 DisplayMate A+ records, while the hinge has been certified to perform for 300,000 folds/unfolds by TUV Rheinland. As you’ve probably seen from the fact that it’s all in Chinese, the vivo X Fold is launching in China first. Hopefully it will hit global markets at some point unlike the Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold and Oppo Find N, but we won’t be holding our breath.

It looks like Chinese companies are betting big on foldables, but only for their home market, for reasons we can’t quite fathom. It’s a shame because it means that on a global scale, there’s a lot less competition in this space than there could be.
