The smartphone market is a permanent race, where innovation, updating and speed are key. After the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Fold, which opened a new universe of foldable screens, the big brands have made their move to enter the competition.
Such is the case of Vivo, the Chinese brand that recently entered the international market with a proposal that combines the best of technology and accessibility.
One of its most recent devices, the Vivo X Fold+, brings together in a single device features that make even loyal Samsung fans turn their heads. From its Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 to its internal cooling system, it has everything it needs to dominate the season. But will it be enough? We’ll find out.
A BEAST: POWER AND PERFORMANCE
Among tech fans and connoisseurs, the Vivo X Fold+ is being considered a “beast,” devouring the competition one by one. For starters, it takes from its strongest and best positioned competitor, the Galaxy Z Fold 4, the 6.53-inch external display with Full HD+ resolution. In addition, of course, to a brightness of up to 1200 nits and LTPO technology (from 1 to 120Hz tukif). All protected, naturally, by Gorilla Glass Victus.
For its part, the 8-inch interior display does not disappoint either. Its 2160 x 1916 pixels AMOLED E5 gives the user a consistent experience, where there are no major changes between it and its external display. Not to mention, the interaction of the screens with apps is very smooth. In addition, it is compatible with HDR10+.
Given this level of performance, it is normal for users to start worrying about battery life. However, this is not a problem for the device. After all, it not only has a 4700 mAh battery, but also a fast charging charger with 80W wired and 50W wireless charging.
As far as cameras are concerned, it also stands out. Especially when compared to similar offerings on the market. It has amazing camera sensors, the result of a collaboration with VIVO ZEISS Global Imaging. What does this translate into? A quadruple camera focal length, plus optical and digital zoom.
The Vivo x Fold+ will arrive in Europe soon, in two variants:
- Vivo X Fold+ 12 RAM / 256 GB, for €1445.
- Vivo X FOLD+ 12 RAM / 512 GB, for 1,589 euros.
HOW DOES IT DIFFER FROM THE STANDARD VIVO X FOLD?
While there’s no denying that the VIVO X FOLD+ hit the market at a time when no one was expecting it, it doesn’t get a bad look either. After all, it’s undeniable how much of an improvement it is over its predecessor.
The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 that comes with the “Plus” version offers 30% more processor efficiency. In addition, the 66W versus 80W charging speed has a major impact on the user experience.
