Vivo has just received Google Play certification for a new device with the model number V2256A, and it’s not just any device – it’s the Vivo X Flip!
This suggests that Vivo is jumping into the flip-style foldable smartphone market, to compete with Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 4. It’s always great to see new players enter the game and shake things up. So let’s see what Vivo has in store for us with this exciting new device.
Vivo is expanding its foldable phone lineup, this time, they’re taking on clamshell-style foldables with the upcoming Vivo X Flip. While it’s exciting news, a Google Play certification doesn’t necessarily mean that the device will have a global release.
This only means that the device can use Google Play Services. Despite other rivals like the OPPO Find N2 Flip being available globally, it’s uncertain if the X Flip will be. So, while we’re hopeful, let’s wait and see if Vivo’s new foldable phone will be available to us all.
Based on benchmark results, the Vivo X Flip will have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 SoC. It will also have 12GB of RAM, and Android 13 straight out of the box. However, keep in mind that benchmark results can be manipulated.
According to Digital Chat Station, the phone will come with a 6.8-inch primary display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It will also have 50MP Sony IMX866 primary camera, and a 12MP Sony IMX663 ultrawide camera, both with ZEISS branding.
While the phone is expected to launch next month, it may only be available in China initially. It is only safe to wait and see if it comes to other regions. Overall, the specs mentioned sound pretty impressive, but we’ll have to wait for official confirmation before drawing any conclusions.
