The Vivo X Fold Plus smartphone’s launch date has been tipped. Also, the handset’s camera specs have been revealed. Word on the grapevine is that Vivo will be launching another foldable phone later this year. To recap, the company launched its first-ever foldable smartphone dubbed the Vivo X Fold in China earlier this year. The X Fold sold like hotcakes after hitting the store shelves for the first time in April.
Regrettably, Vivo did not launch the X Fold in the Indian market. Now, the company is on the verge of unveiling its next foldable phone with the Vivo X Fold Plus moniker. However, Vivo was originally prepping to launch it as the X Fold S. Amid the lack of an official confirmation, noted tipster Digital Chat Station has revealed the Vivo X Fold Plus smartphone’s camera specs.
DCS claims that the X Fold S could launch as the Plus model in a new Weibo post. So, the Vivo X Fold Plus could be the next foldable phone from the Chinese technology company. However, Vivo has neither confirmed nor denied these speculations. According to the leaker, the rear camera setup of the Vivo X Fold Plus will feature a 50MP main sensor. Also, there will be a 48MP ultra-wide camera on the back.
