In preparation for its upcoming release, the Vivo X Fold 2 foldable phone has already been showcased at the prestigious 2023 Boao Forum in China, as we predicted yesterday. The device will be officially launched in April.
Vivo took to its official Weibo handle to share a captivating poster that features the Executive Vice-President, Hu Baishan, and Boao Forum’s Secretary General, Li Baodong, holding the X Fold 2. The foldable phone stands out with its sleek and modern design, which has been significantly improved from its predecessor. The poster has given a sneak peek of what to expect from the highly anticipated device. The X Fold 2 is slated for release in April,
Based on the visuals provided, it is evident that the Vivo X Fold 2 features a distinct design compared to its predecessors. Notably, the rectangular camera block found on the back of the previous X Fold and X Fold+ models has been replaced with a more streamlined design that seamlessly incorporates the camera module into the phone’s body.
The Vivo X Fold 2’s camera module is a round-shaped design that includes three cameras and a ring LED flash. The ZEISS branding is also placed below the camera module, indicating that Vivo has partnered with the German optics company to enhance the camera performance of the X Fold 2.
One notable feature of the X Fold 2 is the curved edge on the cover display. This adds to the overall aesthetic appeal of the device and provides a sleek look. Additionally, the inner and outer displays of the X Fold 2 will feature an ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint scanner, which is a step up from the optical fingerprint scanners found in previous models. This will provide users with an extra layer of security and a more seamless user experience.
Recent leaks and rumors have given us an enticing glimpse of what we can expect from the upcoming Vivo X Fold 2. The device’s foldable display is expected to offer a stunning 2K resolution and a speedy 120Hz refresh rate, making for an immersive viewing experience. It will also come preloaded with OriginOS 3, which is based on the latest Android 13 OS.
What’s particularly exciting about the X Fold 2 is that it will be the first foldable phone to feature the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset. This powerful processor was recently spotted on AnTuTu with 12 GB of LPDDR5x RAM and 512 GB of UFS 4.0 storage. As for the camera setup, it’s rumored to include a 50-megapixel Sony IMX866 primary camera with OIS support, a 12-megapixel IMX663 ultra-wide snapper, and a 12-megapixel IMX663 telephoto camera.
In terms of battery life, the X Fold 2 is expected to come with a 4,800mAh battery that supports 120W fast charging and 50W wireless charging. As for pricing, there’s no official word yet, but we can expect it to be a premium device.
