In Phones, Tablets by Ramon Lopez1 Comment

Vivo today announced three new and exciting products in China, including the company’s first foldable phone and tablet in the Vivo X Fold and Vivo Pad, respectively.

It also debuted the X Note, Vivo’s answer to the current Galaxy Ultra flagship and Samsung’s now-discontinued Galaxy Note line.

While Vivo didn’t specify which models will be released in international markets, its chief executive for the Indian market previously confirmed via social media that the X Note will also launch in India after its Chinese release. This seems to suggest the high-end foldable might debut in the Philippines as well as in other countries, although a local outing would be tricky without a telecom partner.

Here are the retail prices of the newly launched devices in China:

  • Vivo X Fold
    • 12GB/256GB: ¥8,999 (about $1,413 or P73,573 converted)
    • 12GB/512GB: ¥9,999 ($1,570 or P81,749)
  • Vivo X Note
    • 8GB/256GB: ¥5,999 ($942 or P49,046)
    • 12GB/256GB: ¥6,499 ($1,020 or P53,134)
    • 12GB/512GB: ¥6,999 ($1,099 or P57,222)
  • Vivo Pad
    • 8GB/128GB: ¥2,499 ($392 or P20,431)
    • 8GB/256GB: ¥2,999 ($471 or P24,519)

The 3 devices Vivo launched in China today, April: Vivo X Fold, Vivo X Note, and Vivo Pad

Vivo X Fold

True to the leaks, the X Fold follows in the footsteps of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold series, with an outwards-folding book-style design featuring two 120Hz E5 AMOLED screens, two selfie cameras, and quad cameras with Zeiss optics on the back. It’s also the first folding handset powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 5G chipset, making the X Fold the most powerful device in its class — for now, at least.

Impressively, the Vivo foldable, like the OPPO Find N, doesn’t show a crease in the middle as most foldable screens do. Size-wise, it’s about as tall and wide as a typical Android flagship, but it’s also undeniably thick and bulky, owing to its main and secondary displays. Speaking of, the cover screen measures 6.53 inches diagonally, so it’s much taller — and more suited for gaming and viewing content — than the Find N’s 5.49-inch panel.

Specs

  • 8.03-inch E5 AMOLED main display, 2K+ resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, HDR10+
  • 6.53-inch E5 AMOLED secondary display, FHD+ resolution, 120Hz refresh rate. HDR10+
  • 4nm octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor with 5G
  • Adreno 730 GPU
  • 12GB RAM
  • 256GB/512GB storage
  • Quad 50-megapixel main, 48-megapixel ultra-wide, 12-megapixel portrait, 8-megapixel periscope (5x optical zoom) rear cameras with Zeiss optics
  • 16-megapixel front cameras (on main and secondary displays)
  • Under-display fingerprint reader (both displays)
  • 4,600mAh battery with 66-watt fast charging
  • Origin OS 12 based on Android 12
  • Color options: Black, blue, gray

Vivo X Note

The X Note’s biggest attraction is its massive 7-inch E5 AMOLED screen with QHD+ resolution and a large 3D ultrasonic fingerprint reader, which Vivo debuted on last year’s iQOO 8 Pro. The latter is faster, more accurate, and easier to set up than previous under-display solutions.

Unfortunately, unlike the Galaxy Note phones, Vivo’s oversized handset doesn’t house a stylus anywhere in its body. Not to mention, it appears to have far fewer note-taking features than the Samsung devices that inspired it.

Like the X Fold, the X Note packs a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip internally, giving it more than enough power to keep everything on its massive display moving smoothly. The 5G processor is joined by Vivo’s in-house X1 ISP chip for improved image optimization.

Specs

  • 7-inch E5 AMOLED display, 2K+ resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, HDR10+
  • 4nm octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 processor with 5G
  • Adreno 730 GPU
  • 8GB/12GB RAM
  • 256GB/512GB storage
  • Quad 50-megapixel main, 48-megapixel ultra-wide, 12-megapixel portrait, 8-megapixel periscope (5x optical zoom) rear cameras with Zeiss optics
  • 16-megapixel front camera
  • 3D ultrasonic under-display fingerprint reader
  • 5,000mAh battery with 80-watt fast charging
  • IP68 water and dust resistance
  • Origin OS 12 based on Android 12
  • Color options: Black, blue, gray

Vivo Pad

Finally, we have the Snapdragon 870-based Pad, Vivo’s initial tablet offering. It offers a sizable 11-inch panel sporting a 2,560 x 1,600 resolution to go along with a 120Hz refresh rate.

The screen supports stylus input using an optional Wacom stylus that costs ¥349 ($55 or P2,853) and can distinguish between 4,096 levels of pressure. Vivo will also sell you a keyboard with a built-in trackpad and a flip case priced at ¥599 ($94 or P4,897) and ¥199 ($31 or P1,627), respectively.

It runs Vivo’s new Origin OS HD Android skin, which introduces several interesting features, including one-touch NFC pairing as well as the ability to mirror your phone’s display on the tablet. The battery backup is 8,040mAh and supports fast charging up to 44 watts.

Specs

  • 11-inch IPS display, 2.5K resolution, 120Hz refresh rate
  • 7nm octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 870 processor with 5G
  • Adreno 650 GPU
  • 8GB RAM
  • 128GB/256GB storage
