According to various reports, the folding screen smartphone market will grow in the coming years by at least 30%. This means that all the technologies used in them are already mature. Plus, it means that the ecosystem is ready to offer a variety of apps and games to large masses. Third, people are ready to pay a fortune for such handsets. This also means that more and more companies will start making similar models. When saying this, we mean not only the traditional horizontally folding smartphones but also clamshell models. At the end of last year, OPPO released its first new vertically folding phone, the OPPO Find N2 Flip. It was welcomed by users due to its compact shape and ultra-light feel. As a rival, VIVO can’t fall behind. The company will launch the VIVO X Flip in the near future.
VIVO X Flip highlights
Recently, some Weibo bloggers revealed the appearance of the VIVO X Flip. As we can see, the handset has inherited many elements from the current X90 series. There is also a rear circular camera module connected by an aluminum hinge in the middle.
Below the camera module, we can see a horizontally placed secondary screen with a screen width of 682 pixels. It looks quite similar to the Moto Razr 2022 folding screen smartphone. When unfolded, its main screen width reaches 1080 pixels.
In addition, the power button is on the side of the fuselage. We guess the handset will support the side fingerprint recognition function. This is a common practice for many phones currently available on the market.
Prior to this, we heard that the VIVO X Flip will be equipped with a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor. It will focus on thinness and lightness. If nothing accidental happens, the phone will be released together with the new VIVO X Fold 2.
