Technologically advanced, X Fold also provides industry-leading professional smartphone photography capabilities through ZEISS Optics and ZEISS T*Coating. ZEISS Quad Camera setup together with ZEISS Portrait Effects like ZEISS Natural Color, ZEISS Superb Night Camera and ZEISS Superb Portrait provides tremendous lens performance, strong anti-glare capabilities, high-resolution sensors to ensure greater light and shadow.
Several new shooting methods can be utilized with waist-level viewfinder (WLVF), Rear Selfie camera and Hover Photography Mode. The Foldable phone displays the photo preview on both screens at the same time, allowing the subject to see a preview before taking the photo to adjust posture and expressions.
Multi-Dimensional Hinge Enables vivo X Fold to Withstand Over 300,000 Bends
The hinge directly impacts the overall performance of foldable phones. Having said that, the multi-dimensional hinge in vivo X Fold is highly reliable, and can withstand 300,000 bends, according to a TÜV Rheinland test, where the crease control remains excellent after testing. vivo X Fold hinge is made up of 174 parts made, and using sixfold aerospace-grade materials such as zirconium alloys and FS53 Aviation-level High Strength Steel, allowing for robust performance in smoothness, strength and shock resistance. Technically, vivo X Fold has brought a floating medium plate design to optimize the screen crease and adopts ultra-resilient Ultra-Thin Glass (UTG) in a unique staggered structure, and sports a waterdrop-shaped hinge structure along with the combination of multiple technologies eliminates the common issue of bulging.
vivo X Fold is only available in mainland China.
