Vivo will surpass Samsung with the new folding smartphone X Fold 2

The latest news shows that Vivo can surpass the leader Samsung, launching the first foldable smartphone with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor in the market.

The launch of the Chinese brand will take place next April while the South Korean giant will just launch the Galaxy Z Fold and the Galaxy Z Flip in the middle of summer, in August.

The segment of folding smartphones is on the rise, at least when it comes to launching new models. Chinese brands such as OPPO and Honor have recently launched new foldable terminals that promise to be fierce competition.

Now it’s Vivo’s turn to enter the competition and it seems that it will even surpass the leading brand in this segment, Samsung. According to the leaking digital chat station, Vivo’s X Fold 2 will launch next April.

If this information is confirmed, this will be the first foldable equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor to hit the market. And it is at this point that the Chinese brand will overtake the South Korean giant.

Samsung will only launch the new Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5, also equipped with this next-generation processor, in August.

But keep in mind that Vivo will launch the X Fold 2, for now, only in the Chinese market. If you want to stay ahead of leader Samsung, you’ll need to get the model across Chinese borders before the peak of summer, when Samsung will launch its new foldables globally.

Vivo X Fold 2 will be one of the fastest charging models in its segment

Other rumors have already advanced with some of the specifications that we can expect to see in the new Vivo Fold. The foldable will be powered by a 4,800 mAh battery with support for 120-watt fast charging.

This attribute, in particular, could make the Vivo X Fold 2 one of the fastest charging models in its segment.

It will also feature an eight-inch AMOLED main display, capable of 2K resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate.

For photography, it features a triple rear camera setup with the Sony IMX866 primary sensor that has 50 megapixels and optical image stabilization. Accompanying this will be a 12-megapixel ultra-wide sensor and an equally 12-megapixel telephoto sensor.
