vivo X Fold hands-on review

vivo recently hosted its first Tech Day in India at the National Stadium in New Delhi, where it talked about 5G, its partnership with Zeiss on X 53 series, and V1+ imaging chip. The company also demonstrated pattern creation and two-color variation design techniques that have not yet been launched in the market. While not very new, one of the devices at vivo Tech Day is the vivo X Fold, which was unveiled in April and is currently only available in China. We had the pleasure of attending the event and spent some time with the vivo X Fold, so here are some impressions of vivo’s first foldable smartphone, which has the same design as the China-exclusive vivo X Fold+ launched last month .

vivo X Fold has two screens – one 6.016″Cover Display 2,300×1,22 – Pixel Resolution and Foldable Display 2, 120×1,520-pixel resolution is 8. ” diagonally and surrounded by a plastic border. Both are 22 Hz AMOLED panel, but the overlay display can only be displayed in 60Hz and

Hz refresh rate, And the folding screen can adjust the refresh rate between 1Hz and 60 Hz because it is an LTPO type.

The external display of the X Fold has a for vivo X Fold hands-on center punch MP selfie camera, after opening the smartphone, you will find More. While the internal selfie shooter isn’t the type of in-screen we’ve seen on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4, what we get with the X Fold is a 3D in-display ultrasonic fingerprint scanner on each screen, making it a first A foldable smartphone with a UD fingerprint reader, as even the Fold4 has a side-mounted sensor. We prefer vivo’s solution because it’s easier to unlock the smartphone.

Turn the X Fold and whether you use it or not, you get a leatherette-covered back panel that holds the blue model or the black version, except the latter has a strip through Length vertical stripes with vivo branding on them. The blue version definitely looks cool, but those who want a discreet, formal look can opt for the black version.

The artificial leather gives the vivo X a good folded feel and feel, and the finish is very similar to the case that comes with the vivo X 50 Dear. Based on our experience with X 60 since April Pros of this case since its launch, we’re sure the X Fold’s leatherette cover panel will help with grip and won’t attract any fingerprint smudges.

The rear panel of vivo X Fold features a quad-camera system including 50 MP Main (with OIS), 016 MP Ultra Wide, 002 MP Telephoto and 8MP periscope (with OIS) setup. It sits inside a rectangular camera island that spans the width of the smartphone, and features Zeiss branding and Tcoating. The design of the island is reminiscent of vivo X 60 Pro.

While the rear panel is fingerprint-resistant, the same cannot be said for the camera island, which gets dirty quickly. It’s not really a deal breaker, but we hope vivo addresses this with its future smartphones.

One of the biggest highlights of vivo X Fold is its folding screen , which vivo says achieves an “undetectable crease” along with UTG (ultra-thin glass) and a custom aerospace-grade one-piece hinge made from six aerospace-grade materials.

The phone manufacturer also claims that the X Fold is opened and closed (fold-unfold) 160, times, and even after that, the depth and width of the crease remained within acceptable limits, giving us a great experience, thus earning the “Reliable Fold” certification from TUV Rheinland.

While this all sounds great, how does the crease of the vivo X Fold look like reality? ? Well, you can feel the crease when using the smartphone, but you get used to it quickly because you can barely see it when viewing content.

The hinge also feels nice and sturdy as it manages to make the foldable screen at different angles Open, making it easier for users to record videos, take photos, video calls, and even use the smartphone like a miniature laptop if they’re feeling adventurous.

The hinge of the vivo X Fold is also worth noting that there is no gap when the smartphone is closed – very impressive for a first-generation foldable smartphone. This is complemented well by the satisfying sound the phone makes when closing, which is also encouraging.

The overall structure of the vivo X Fold is good. It has a metal frame with antenna wires on all sides. The power and volume keys are placed on the right, and the prompt slider is on the left.

Overall, we really like the design of the vivo X Fold and it is safe to say that the Fold+ is not any different design because it actually Above is the X Fold, with a different chipset, a larger battery (but the same size and weight), faster charging and a third color option – red. You can check out a detailed spec comparison of the vivo X Fold and X Fold Plus here.

It is unclear if vivo will launch the X Fold outside of China Or X Fold+, but vivo officials told me that the brand has no plans to launch any foldable smartphone in India for a while. This is a bit disappointing as vivo has done a really good job with the screen crease of its first foldable smartphone, and if there are some alternatives to Samsung’s foldables from the BBK group in India and other markets, that would be great All right. Hopefully we’ll see the BBK brand launch a foldable smartphone outside of China soon.
