Although mobile phone manufacturers have put all their efforts into developing foldable phones, this market has not yet taken off as expected. But Vivo, against all odds, presented its first foldable in China, the Vivo X Fold, which is quite similar to Samsung’s foldable even in its name, the Galaxy Z Fold 3.
The most obvious similarity is found on their screens, yes, in the plural; The Vivo X Fold has a 120 Hz FHD+ OLED smart display outside, with a size of 6.53 inches. The other screen is inside with an 8.03-inch 120 Hz LTPO OLED panel. According to the brand, the folding screen is certified for up to 300,000 folds; that is, about 80 folds a day for 10 years. To ensure this, Vivo has equipped the phone with ultra-thin glass for the folding screen, which guarantees more protection.
Another of its similarities is found in the ability to turn the screen; the inner screen can be rotated between 60 and 120 degrees, just like a laptop. This is undoubtedly a very useful feature in video calls, since the camera can be used without a tripod, for example.
