Vivo X Fold Plus comes with features same as X Fold except an upgraded chipset and enhanced battery capacity

Nothing new under the sun

X Fold Plus, the latest flagship and Vivo’s second foldable smartphone has hit the market. But surprisingly, there is nothing very appealing about this device that could catch our attention.

More or less similar to its predecessor the X Fold, this latest smartphone features a new chipset - the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 that, according to Qualcomm, promises a 30% reduction in power use along with an increase of 10% in performance. From 4,600mah in the Vivo X Fold the battery has been upgraded to 4,730mAh capacity. 

This phone also has a new color variant called Huaxia Red, along with a matching faux leather protective case.

Looks and display-wise it is quite similar on the outside as well as inside. There’s a 6.53in cover display with a 21:9 aspect ratio and an 8in inner screen with an LTPO panel that allows refresh rate between 1Hz and 120Hz depending on how it’s used. Both the screens sport an in-display ultrasonic fingerprint sensor. The hinge can stay open in three angles for a comfortable viewing experience. 

The camera set-up is also similar to X Fold. Powered by Zeiss Optics, the X Fold Plus is equipped with a periscope quad-camera setup which includes a 50MP main, 48MP ultra-wide, 12MP telephoto and 8MP camera with 5x magnification. There is also a 16MP selfie camera. 

The Vivo X Fold Plus comes in two storage options the 12GB + 256GB and the 12GB + 512GB costing around ₹1,13,7260 and ₹1,25,124 respectively.
