The rumors have been saying about an event in April, but at the same time, we’ve been hearing multiple reports about a March 28 launch. The leak, make us believe that Vivo will be waiting until next month to disclose its new products. Hence, it’s better to not hold our breath for tomorrow’s event anymore. The leak confirms that the Vivo X Fold will come in two variants – 12 GB of RAM with 256 GB of Internal Storage, and 12 GB of RAM with 512 GB Storage. Just looking at these configurations, we can easily see that this handset is for the premium segment.
