vivo launched its new and advanced flagship foldable device – vivo X Fold+ in China. The vivo X Fold+ comes with many upgrades in hardware and software performances compared to its predecessor, vivo X Fold, which received many positive feedback from the public.
vivo X Fold+ is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip with 4nm process, which reduces the power consumption of CPU and GPU by 30% to achieve great power consumption optimisation, while greatly improve the overall performance. Besides that, the SPU secure processing unit in the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip offers highly secure protection for privacy, such as financial-level scenarios. It also has a one-click feature that closes the mobile phone sensors in stealth mode, and the atomic privacy system can only be accessed through exclusive fingerprints.
vivo X Fold+ symbolise the new generation of the folding phone as it becomes the first folding screen mobile phone in the industry to offer dual 5G, dual SIM and dual access, thanks to the customised adjustment of the main chip with Qualcomm.
For the display, the vivo X Fold+ is equipped with the world’s first internal and external 2K + 120Hz LTPO full-height swipe screen, with an internal screen of 8.03 inches and an external screen of 6.53 inches. The vivo X Fold+ inner screen also uses UTG ultra-tough glass with aerospace-grade worry-free hinges. The hinge uses six layers of aerospace-grade materials, such as liquid metal zirconium alloy, F53 aviation high-strength steel, and carbon fibre board, which makes the hinge smoother. It is lightweight and has better resistance to external shocks. Besides that, it also passes the 300,000-fold folding test certified by Rheinland, which perfectly overcomes the durability of the folding screen.
In terms of battery life, the vivo X Fold+ fast charge is upgraded with an 80W wired FlashCharge + 50W wireless FlashCharge, and the battery size is upgraded to 4730mAh. As a result, the battery life of vivo X Fold+ has increased by 20%, and is capable of charging to 70% in 18 minutes and fully charged to 100% only in 35 minutes.
