vivo recently announced the X Fold 2, their third tablet-like foldable phone for those who want a maxed-out multitasking and entertainment experience from a smartphone.

The new vivo X Fold 2 boasts a large 8.03-inch foldable screen. It’s a fancy E6 AMOLED panel with a decent 2160 x 1916 pixel resolution, 120Hz refresh rate, and a spacious 4:3.55 aspect ratio.


It also features a new droplet-style hinge that’s said to be lighter and more durable compared to vivo’s older foldable phones.

There’s also a secondary display on the cover. It is a 6.53-inch AMOLED panel with a tall 21:9 aspect ratio that was made for more casual smartphone usage like replying to messages, calls, social media browsing, and more. It has an FHD+ pixel resolution with a 120Hz refresh rate. Both displays will get their own selfie cameras and fingerprint scanners.


Continuing its partnership with ZEISS, the new X Fold 2 has Zeiss T* lens coating. The main camera uses a 50-megapixel IMX866V sensor with OIS, similar to what the X Flip has. It is joined by two 12-megapixel sensors. One with an ultra-wide lens while the other is great for portraits with 2x optical zoom.

vivo also created a new V2 image chip that improves HDR capabilities in both photo and video and is better at handling noise.


To match the impressive hardware, the X Fold 2 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor with 12GB of RAM and up to 512GB of storage.

As for the battery, the new foldable phone gets a 4,600mAh capacity with a whopping 120W wired and 50W wireless charging. It will ship with vivo’s OriginOS 3.0 that’s based on Android 13.


The new vivo X Fold 2 comes in 12GB/256GB and 12GB/512GB variants for a price of CNY8,999 (~Php73,100) and CNY9,999 (~Php81,200), respectively. No word yet if it will hit the international market.
