vivo has finally given us the first official look at its first clamshell phone, which is scheduled to launch in April.
The brand’s teaser of the vivo X Flip shows a foldable device that flaunts an outer screen which looks larger than those of the OPPO Find N2 Flip and Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4. And unlike the ones on the OPPO and Samsung units, the upcoming vivo smartphone’s exterior display is positioned horizontally — and from one end to the other, at that. This is because it is more natural for humans to read from left to right, according to the company.
Under the outer panel is a round camera module with ZEISS branding. Yes, as with vivo’s other flagship models, the vivo X Flip boasts ZEISS Optics with T* Coating and creative effects jointly developed by the two manufacturers. The main sensor is a 50-megapixel unit with optical image stabilization. There’s a 32-megapixel selfie camera, too.
vivo has likewise confirmed that the X Flip is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 5G processor, gives you the option to use it hands-free, and has a hinge that’s certified by TÜV Rheinland for 500,000 times of folding. The smartphone will be available in Diamond Purple, Diamond Black, and Silk Gold colors.
vivo didn’t bring its previous foldables to the Philippines, but we’re hoping that the vivo X Flip will be the first of its kind from the brand to land locally.
