Vivo X Fold2 packaging and design

The packaging box for the Vivo X Fold2 is similar to the previous generation, featuring a flat and square black gift box design. The product highlights its name in black on the front, giving a low-key appearance.┬áThe blue “ZEISS” logo, on the other hand, is quite eye-catching.

Upon opening the box, you can see the unfolded folding screen lying inside, with beautiful butterfly-shaped wallpaper in the background.

The back of the phone

Let’s first take a look at the back of the phone in its folded state. The Chinese Red color of the Vivo X Fold2 is not a bright red, and its brightness is lower than the previous Vivo X Fold+ model, giving a more robust and comfortable feel with a classical touch.

The back of the phone features a Yin and Yang(Concepts of Ancient Chinese Philosophy) splicing design, with about 3/4 of the left side covered in leather material and the remaining right side in dark red glossy glass, symbolizing the yin and yang of life and generating an infinite variety.

The camera design language continues the theme of the circle and square, presenting a simple yet intriguing look.

The mirror circle around the camera is crafted using CNC precision machining with high-gloss cutters to create 960 fine and delicate textures. These textures feature the design of the triangular grooves from Rolex watches, which look exquisite and feel delicate to the touch.

Vivo X Fold2 screen design

On the front of the phone is a 6.53-inch outer screen with a front-facing camera housed in a top-centered punch hole. The screen curves to the right and extends directly to the phone’s middle frame.

The vivo X Fold2 features a shiny metal middle frame that blends seamlessly with the deep silver-black color of the screen and matches the camera on the back. The texture feels solid and sturdy to the touch.

When you unfold the phone, you will reveal an 8.03-inch inner screen, with a front-facing camera positioned at the top center and surrounded by a matte plastic bezel that will provide screen protection when you close the phone.

The hinge and pivot part of the phone do not have any special design, and the matte texture looks comfortable and embodies a minimalist design philosophy.

The vivo X Fold2 has a thickness of only 6.07mm when unfolded, a folding thickness of 12.9mm, and a weight of 278g, which is noticeably lighter and thinner than the previous generation.

Other elements

In terms of other elements, the top of this smartphone features a speaker and microphone, while the bottom has a SIM card slot, speaker, microphone, and USB Type-C port. There is only a single mute button on the left side of the device, with the volume and power buttons on the right.

Leather case and customized stand case

Beyond the included case, Gizcoupon also received a customized leather stand case for the vivo X Fold2, which features a similar spliced design of leather and plastic with black vertical stripes on the plastic portion, resulting in a striking red and black contrast.

Furthermore, the case can be unfolded to reveal a support leg, allowing the phone to stand upright on a desk for easy office work or movie watching.

Overall, the Chinese Red version of the Vivo X Fold2 boasts exquisite craftsmanship, solid build quality, and an impressive design, making it one of the most attractive foldable smartphones on the market.
