Vivo recently lifted the curtains on its 3rd generation of foldables with a vanilla X Fold 3 model alongside a beefier Pro. In this article, let’s take a quick look at both, their similarities, differences, expected price in Nepal, and availability details.

Vivo X Fold 3 Series: Overview

Design and Display 

On the design side of things, there’s not a lot of deviation but you’ll still be able to distinguish the two. The vanilla Vivo X Fold 3 features a side-mounted fingerprint sensor while the Pro model hides its ultra-sonic tech under the display.

Moreover, the Pro is also beefier at 236 grams and rated IPX8 against water splashes. As such, it misses out on the lightest (in-ward) foldable title held by its base sibling (Vivo X Fold 3) at just 219 grams. That’s less than the popular bar flagships like the iPhone 15 Pro Max (221 grams), and the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra (232 grams).

Don’t mistake the lightness for a lack of strength though as the X Fold 3 series is certified to withstand 500,000 folds with its lightweight carbon fiber hinge and also features the  Swiss SGS five-star drop-resistant rating.

Talking of the display(s), both share identical setups. There’s a larger 8.03″ foldable OLED panel on the inside while the external one measures 6.53 inches. Both are 120Hz LTPO screens with a local peak brightness of 4,500 nits. Pixel-wise, you are getting sharp displays with pixel densities of ~412 and ~457 ppi on the outer and inner screens respectively. Besides that, you get all the goodies like HDR 10+ certification, Dolby Vision, and 1 billion colors.


Under the hood, the base Vivo X Fold 3 features last year’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor while the Pro variants ships with the latest and greatest Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC. Both are 4nm processors manufactured by TSMC but the latter features more powerful cores at higher clocks and a better GPU + NPU. As for the memory, you can configure both with up to 16GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 1TB of UFS 4.0 storage.

There’s a total of 5 cameras spread across the Vivo X Fold 3 foldable(s). The 50MP ultrawide and the 32MP selfie cameras (two) are shared between the models while the main and zoom lenses are buffed up in the Pro. The vanilla X Fold 3 features a 50MP 1/1.49” Sony sensor while its Pro sibling features a larger 1/1.3” OmniVision OV50H. The 50MP Sony portrait lens on the X Fold 3 is also replaced by a 64MP 3x persicope camera.
