Earlier this year, VIVO released a folding screen smartphone dubbed the VIVO X Fold. The phone price started at 8,999 yuan ($1298). We knew that a follow-up model was on the way. In this regard, today’s rumor coming our way from a well-known Chinese leaker didn’t sound odd or unexpected. Particularly, he said that the so-called VIVO X Fold+ would hit the stores at the end of this month.
VIVO X Fold+ Specs
Regarding the biggest highlights, the VIVO X Fold+ will feature Qualcomm’s first-generation Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor. Apart from this, there will also be a 2K resolution screen supporting a 120Hz refresh rate. Due to the LTPO technology, the phone will automatically adjust the refresh rate to provide a better performance and save more power. Also, both screens will come with ultrasonic under-screen fingerprint recognition scanners. VIVO also promises to bring a new color option.
Another selling point of the forthcoming folding screen smartphone will be its shooting capabilities. Besides the 16MP selfie camera on the front, there will also be a quad camera on the rear. The latter will include a 50-megapixel outsole main camera, a 48-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera, a 12-megapixel portrait camera with double optical zoom, and an 8-megapixel super-telephoto camera with 5x optical zoom. Undoubtedly, this folding screen phone’s camera will have a Zeiss tunning and use its own V1 camera chip.
The 4700mAh dual-cell battery will support 80W wired fast charging and 50W wireless fast charging.
