Yordan, 22 September 2022

Vivo will introduce the X Fold+ next week and we already know it is coming in Red color. The device popped up on AnTuTu with a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, and today the company confirmed the platform on its official Weibo channel.

In the same post, it also announced the foldable will have 80W fast charging, which is an improvement over the 66W in the first X Fold.

The phone will also have its own understanding of how a user interface for a foldable should behave. According to vivo, there are over 5,000 apps that are optimized for the OriginOS Ocean version for the X Fold+.

The first Fold did not make it outside China and we haven’t heard anything about this one becoming international as well. When it was launched in April, prices started from CNY8,999 and we expect the same cost now, which currently translates to $1,270.
