Vivo X Flip has been officially announced. This is the brand’s first flip-folding phone. Moreover, it is also the first flip folding phone from any Chinese brand after OPPO. OPPO’s Find N2 Flip has received heaps of praise. It will be interesting to see how Vivo stacks up to compete with the N2 Flip.
Vivo X Flip Design
The design reveals a circular camera module with ZEISS optics branding. Moreover, the cover screen is also very adequate in terms of size. The back of the device also seems textured in a diamond-cut pattern. Furthermore, the frame is a metal chassis and has a chrome finish. Overall, the design seems quite nice.
The front is the same as other flip folding devices like the Galaxy Z Flip 4 and the OPPO Find N2 Flip. The bezels are a bit thick but uniform nevertheless. But, the main thing to be seen is the crease, and how well they manage that. Further reviews will reveal that too.
Vivo X Flip Specifications
Firstly, the device is going to be powered by the Snapdragon 8+ Gen1. Moreover, the device has a 6.74″ OLED display with 10-bit color. The display has an FHD+ resolution and a refresh rate of up to 120Hz. Furthermore, the device packs a 4400 mAh battery which can be charged at 44W. Vivo X Flip weighs 199 grams and measures 8.19mm thick. Moreover, the device comes with Bluetooth 5.3 and WiFi 6 integrated.
The phone will come with Android 13 out of the box. For security, the X Flip sports a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. Moving on to the camera system, the device has a 50MP main IMX866 sensor which is accompanied by a 12MP IMX663 sensor with ultra-wide capabilities. Lastly, you will also get fast read and write speeds with LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 internal storage.
Vivo X Flip VS OPPO Find N2 Flip
Well, firstly, the Find N2 Flip is powered by the MediaTek Dimensity 9000+ chipset. Another difference is the cover screen, Vivo seems to have implemented a better cover screen. Majorly, the specifications on paper are the same. Both are the first of both companies in terms of flip phones. Another difference is the use of sensors in the camera system. OPPO has used a 50MP IMX890. The other sensor is an 8MP IMX355 ultra-wide lens. Maybe the final decision can only be based on the real-life performance of both. The one with better durability and a more refined experience will be the winner.
