Around 5 months after the launch of the X Fold, Vivo has introduced its upgraded version, the Vivo X Fold+. The new foldable gets a performance upgrade with Qualcomm’s current best SoC and is available in a new red color. In this article, we will look at the key specs, features, expected price, and availability of the Vivo X Fold in Nepal.

Vivo X Fold+ Overview:

Design, Display

For the Vivo X Fold+, the brand has made no changes in terms of design. But, they have introduced a new colorway called Huaxia Red. Like the two original colors, this one has a faux leather finish too.

Likewise, the display is the same as the original X Fold too. It has an 8.03″ Samsung-made E5 AMOLED display. Since it is an LTPO 2-backed panel, the refresh rate can dynamically adjust from 1Hz to 120Hz based on the content. It features Ultra Thin Glass (UTG) protection.

Both the main display and the 6.53-inch cover display feature an ultrasonic fingerprint scanner. Moreover, the aircraft-grade floating wing hinge allows the hinge to be opened at multiple angles. This is especially useful for video calls and multimedia consumption.

Performance

The Vivo X Fold+ boasts an upgraded Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor. And, according to Qualcomm, it consumes 30% less power while providing a 10% boost in performance compared to the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. It has 12GB of RAM and the users can opt for either 256GB or 512GB of internal storage.

As for the software, Vivo X Fold boots on Android 12-based OriginOS Ocean. In addition, the company has baked in some extra features to take advantage of the folding form factor. Users can use the phone as a laptop for a few apps like Note, QQ, and Youku.

Cameras

Vivo has not changed the camera system on the Vivo X Fold+. Thus, like the X Fold, it features a 50MP sensor with an f.1/8 aperture and Optical Image Stabilization. Accompanying it is a 48MP ultrawide, 2X zoom lens, and 5X periscope sensor.
