Vivo recently showcased its first foldable smartphone, the Vivo X Fold, and is going to give tough competition to the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4. Here’s why.
On Tuesday, smartphone maker Vivo held its first ever Technology Day 2022 event in India and showcased its first foldable smartphone – Vivo X Fold. I spent about an hour with the Vivo X Fold and I can say that for now, Samsung has to worry a little bit because it’s going to have really tough competition. Although the company has not yet revealed the launch date of the phone in India, it can be said that the phone has features to challenge leading foldable smartphone makers like Samsung.
When you compare the Vivo X Fold with the recently launched Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, you will notice that the display or screen of the Vivo X Fold is wider as compared to the Galaxy Z Fold 4. Also, users of foldable phones must have noticed the crease in the middle of the screen while open it. Vivo X Fold comes with a unibody structure for the hinge that supports the width of the phone when opened, reducing creases. With that already said, here are some interesting details you need to know about the Vivo X Fold:
