2022 probably will be known as the year when the segment of foldable smartphones will become more popular or at least will offer more diversity. Samsung pretty much has the segment under its belt with the Galaxy Z series, but that may change soon as more and more brands are introducing foldable devices. We saw the arrival of Xiaomi last year into the segment, Oppo also unveiled its Find N, and now another company in the BBK Electronics group is preparing the terrain for its very first foldable. In fact, this will be the year of many “firsts” for Vivo. The company will introduce a new tablet, and a new foldable smartphone under the rumored Vivo X Fold name.
Unfortunately, there is no official word from Vivo regarding the launch of this device. But so far the rumors have been pointing to its release. Today, a new live image has emerged to give us a blurry glimpse of the handset.
Apparently, the device in the leaked image is the upcoming Vivo X Fold. The leaked shot only shows the device’s foldable display and confirms some of its key specs. However, this seems to be a blurry leak as the device had its back panel covered with a case, probably to partially hide its design. Just like Oppo, Vivo seems to have made a great job in making a foldable display with almost no interruption in the hinge part.

The outer panel will have a curved finish and has a 6.5-inch diagonal. The device has a Full HD+ resolution, and for now, there is no word if it has any kind of high refresh rate.
