Announcement. Vivo X Fold is a foldable tablet smartphone with two top screens

Vivo announced at yesterday's event its first tablet smartphone, the Vivo X Fold, a foldable device with two screens, one large and flexible and the second a "normal" smartphone.

We have already seen such devices, and more than once. So, on the one hand, nothing unusual. But, on the other hand, the miracle craftsman from Vivo managed to add a few curious highlights to their new product.

Nothing supernatural.But it seems that no one had previously had clamshells like this, where fingerprint scanners would be hidden under the screens. And here the scanners are just exactly the same. Yes, and there are two of them. under each of the screens. Which, when you think about it, makes sense.

The second highlight is also related to the screens. Both of them have refresh rates up to 120Hz. Well, at the same time both LTPO AMOLED and HDR10 +.

A "tablet" screen - one that folds - is almost square. Diagonal 8.03″ (207 cm²), resolution 1916×2160 (360 ppi).

The “smartphone” screen has quite the usual size and resolution. 6.52″ (99 cm²), 1080×2520 (421 ppi).

Iron.Everything is simple and clear here, a typical flagship stuffing. Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, so we traditionally expect about a million points in AnTuTu. There is a lot of memory. 12 GB operational, 256 or 512 GB permanent.

The battery is not particularly impressive with its capacity,only 4600 mAh. By the standards of smartphones, this is nothing. But for a tablet of this capacity, perhaps not enough. But charging is fast - 66 watts. Wireless charging is also available - 50 watts.

Cameras.Frontal two pieces, one in each of the screens. The resolution is the same, 16 MP. Whether the cameras themselves are the same is not clear. On the official website, slightly different characteristics are indicated for them. But perhaps this is just an inaccuracy in filling out the description.

There are four rear cameras. And the set is such that here you can encroach on the title of the photo flagship.

  • 50 MP - main camera - based on Samsung ISOCELL GN5 sensor with large pixels and optical stabilization.
  • 48 MP - wide-angle camera;
  • 12 MP - double telephoto on the Sony IMX663 sensor;
  • 8 MP - five-time telephoto periscope with optical stabilization.

Stereo speakers, Type-C, the sixth Wi-Fi, NFC, 5G - where without them? Everything is.

Of the tangible shortcomings - of course, rather big dimensions. 311 grams live weight and almost 15mm thick (folded).

Well, the price. It is also difficult to attribute it to the merits. Although, they say, in China, pre-order beats all records. ¥8999 (₽112000, $1410) and ¥9999 (₽124000, $1570) for the 12+256 and 12+512GB versions respectively.
