Vivo had its big launch event which was headlined by the company’s first folding phone named Vivo X Fold. The Vivo foldable sports a book-like design with an 8-inch 120Hz 2K inner display that folds to a rather narrow form. Vivo calls its hinge mechanism Aerospace-grade Wing. On the front, the X Fold presents a 6.53-inch 120Hz FHD+ screen and by the back, there is a massive round camera island housed in yet another rectangular panel. Inside, it is running on Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor like any other flagship smartphone. We will have a better look at the device and its specs below.
However that’s not all, the brand has also unveiled the Vivo X Note and Vivo Pad at this event. So, we will be unpacking their details too.
