Vivo X Fold 2

The Chinese company’s event has arrived and finally, the veil has been lifted on the current foldable smartphones. The vivo X Fold 2 and vivo X Flip are now official and come with powerful technical specifications, stylish designs, and many new features. 

In this article, we’re taking a closer look at the X Fold 2, Vivo’s latest and greatest foldable smartphone that’s been generating quite a buzz in the tech world. From its powerful specs to its sleek design and innovative features, there’s a lot to unpack here, so let’s dive in.

The new vivo X Flip 2 needs no introduction – it is the first foldable smartphone with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, a device that has been talked about a lot in recent months. The chipset on board is the latest flagship solution from Qualcomm, accompanied by 12 GB of LPDDR5X RAM and 256/512 GB of storage; all of which is cooled by a liquid system with a vapor chamber. This device is the pioneer of foldable phones to feature fingerprint scanners embedded within both the inner and outer displays.

The foldable smartphone is equipped with a large 8.03-inch internal screen with a resolution of 2,160 x 1,916 pixels, while outside there is a 6.52-inch Full HD+ panel with a resolution of 2,520 x 1,080 pixels. In both cases, they are E6 AMOLED displays, complete with an ultrasonic fingerprint reader and high brightness levels (up to 1800/1600 nit, respectively for the internal and external displays).

Regarding the new hinge, vivo has created a lighter and more durable solution, using aerospace-grade FS54 steel, which ensures the durability and lightness of the foldable device. The result is a device that measures 161.3 x 73.4 x 13 mm (6-6.7 mm when open), with a weight of around 280 grams. The phone is also equipped with a Flex Mode that allows users to prop it up for hands-free calling, video playback, and photography.

The Flex Mode is a unique feature of the Vivo X Flip 2 that allows users to use the device in different positions. The device can be partially folded to create a 90-degree angle, allowing it to stand up on its own for hands-free calling, video playback, and photography. This feature makes the device more versatile and convenient to use, especially for multitasking and content creation.

Vivo X Fold  Cameras

On the back panel of the Vivo X Fold 2, users will notice a circular camera module that houses the device’s impressive camera setup. The camera array consists of a 50-megapixel main sensor that comes equipped with optical image stabilization, which is a crucial feature for capturing clear and sharp images. Additionally, the camera module also includes a 12-megapixel ultra-wide lens and a 12-megapixel telephoto lens, which provide users with a variety of options for taking high-quality photos and videos.

In addition to the impressive rear camera setup, the Vivo X Fold 2 also features two front-facing cameras. Both the interior and exterior screens have a 16-megapixel selfie snapper located in the center-aligned punch-hole cutout. This feature makes it easy for users to take selfies and make video calls, even when the device is in its folded state.

Furthermore, the Vivo X Fold 2 comes with a V2 chip onboard for enhancing its imaging capabilities. This feature helps to improve the overall image quality by using advanced algorithms to enhance color accuracy, dynamic range, and image sharpness. As a result, users can expect stunning images and videos that are rich in detail and color.

In terms of battery, the X Fold 2 features a powerful 4,800mAh unit that supports both 120W wired and 50W wireless charging. This means that users can quickly and conveniently charge their phone, whether they are at home or on the go. Additionally, there is a VC liquid cooling system that helps dissipate heat, ensuring that the phone stays cool during prolonged use or intense gaming sessions.

Software-wise, the Vivo X Fold 2 runs on OriginOS 3 which is based on the latest Android 13 operating system. This provides users with access to all the latest features and updates, as well as a clean and user-friendly interface. The phone also has a variety of pre-installed apps, including Vivo’s own apps and Google’s suite of apps.
