vivo will announce the X Fold on April 11 and we’ve gathered enough data from leaks and rumors to know what to expect. But it’s always nice to add a few extra bits and pieces and as those come, the price is a pretty big one.
The vivo X Fold will start at CNY 11,999 (INR 1,43,300, €1,735, converted) and CNY 12,999 (INR 1,55,000, €1,880, converted) for the higher-specced model. The information was confirmed by a blurry snap from a briefing presentation slide.
For context, the Galaxy Z Fold3 officially runs for CNY 14,000 in China – that’s the single 12/512GB variant, meaning that Vivo’s pricing is more aggressive than Samsung’s.
Additionally, the vivo X Fold will come in Grey, not just Blue, and Black. Here’s a press render of the phone in Grey and Blue, courtesy of Ishan Agarwal and MySmartPrice.
Let’s do an overview. The vivo X Fold is powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and a 4,600mAh battery with 66W wired and 50W wireless charging. It has a pair of 120Hz screens – a 6.53-inch FHD+ outer display, expected to be slightly curved, and an 8.0-inch inner folding display.
The vivo X Fold will have a 50MP 1/1.57-inch main camera, a 48MP ultrawide snapper, a 12MP portrait camera (likely 2x), and a periscope zoom (possibly 5MP).
