❤ Vivo X Fold 2 and Vivo X Flip confirmed for April 20 launch event



Following several leaks in recent weeks, Vivo has officially confirmed an April 20 launch event for its next foldable, the Vivo X Flip and Vivo X Fold 2.

Posted to Weibo today, Vivo confirmed a launch event for its upcoming foldable later this month. The April 20 event will see the X Flip and X Fold 2, as well as the debut of the new Vivo Pad 2, which the company further teased on its account.






In a video, Vivo showed “giant visual installations” in the North Bund area near Shanghai. The advertisements show off both phones and use 3D tech that’s visible to the naked eye, which sounds incredibly cool.





We know that the Vivo X Fold 2 will be the first foldable employing Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset and that the device will also pick up a new design that includes a red leather-looking material. Meanwhile, the Vivo X Flip has a large outer display in the same form factor as the Galaxy Z Flip series from Samsung.

What remains to be seen at this point is if either of these devices will be sold on the global market.

Vivo X Flip leaks in official-looking image with a huge outer display





As the foldable market heats up, Vivo is working on its first clamshell form factor, and a new leaked image of the Vivo X Flip shows off the phone’s giant outer display.

Posted by Digital Chat Station on Weibo, an official-looking image of the Vivo X Flip gives us our first look at the upcoming foldable’s design. It’s only seen from the outside, with the foldable’s outer display lit up and the camera in full view.

Obviously, the eye-catching point of the Vivo X Flip is its outer display, which is quite large. The display takes up over half of the outer portion of the phone, with a landscape placement that stretches from one side to the other. Measured diagonally this display is probably the same size as the one on the Oppo Find N2 Flip, but the landscape orientation makes for a display that’s potentially more useful.

Directly below that display is a camera module, which is round and only has a single obtrusion from the display. There are presumably at least two camera sensors in that module, but it’s hard to tell from the single picture. Previous rumours have mentioned a 50MP primary camera and 12MP ultrawide.

Notably, too, the Vivo X Flip has a diamond pattern on the design, as well as a purple colour that’s very similar to what Samsung has used on the Flip 3 and Flip 4.

The Vivo X Flip is also expected to debut with a 6.8-inch inner display and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip. A specific release date is not yet known for the Vivo X Flip, but the Vivo X Fold 2 is rumoured to arrive this month.
