After multiple leaks and teasers, Vivo has finally launched its first foldable smartphone. This makes Vivo the second brand under the BBK umbrella to unveil a foldable after Oppo. In this article, we will be discussing the key specs, features, expected price, and availability of Vivo X Fold in Nepal.
Vivo X Fold Overview:
Vivo X Fold sports an 8.03-inch Samsung-made E5 AMOLED panel. It is an LTPO2 panel, thus allowing the phone’s refresh rate to vary between 1Hz to 120Hz, depending upon the content being viewed. It features Schott UTG protection. For reference, Schott is the same company that supplies UTG films to Galaxy foldable.
Further, the main display of the Vivo X Fold boasts HDR10+ compatibility, an ultrasonic in-display fingerprint scanner, and A+ certification from DisplayMate.
The main display folds to unveil a 6.53-inch outer AMOLED panel, which also has an in-display fingerprint scanner. Here, Vivo has used an aircraft-grade floating wing hinge. This allows the Vivo X Fold to unfold completely at 180-degree or stay open at 60 and 120-degree.
Performance and Memory
As with most flagships launching in 2022, Vivo X Fold packs the latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 underneath. The chip is paired with 12GB of RAM. Users can choose between 256GB and 512GB of internal storage.
Fueling the Vivo X Fold is a 4,600mAh battery, which is not much but reasonable given the phone’s dimension. It supports 66W fast charging and 50W wireless charging. In addition, there is also 10W reverse charging to charge accessories or even a secondary phone.
Vivo ships the X Fold with an 80W USB GaN charger. It is a PD charger with two USB ports. Thus, you can charge two devices simultaneously.
