Rumor | The Vivo X Fold S will launch in a new color and with a larger battery that will charge faster
Vivo could have been said to have outdone itself with its first-gen foldable smartphone, the only one in existence with fingerprint sensors set into both its cover display and main ~8-inch screen, both of which have LTPO technology on top of that.
However, the OEM is allegedly not happy with even that much of a premium flexible handset, as it is said to have an iterative upgrade that switches the X Fold's Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC for its mid-year update the 8+ Gen 1 in the works.
The well-regarded tipster also now claims that Vivo will upgrade the battery solution found in the "X Fold S" to at least 4,700mAh, although its forebear already leads the industry with a 4,600mAh capacity.
The putative late-2022 refresh is also now tipped to upgrade to the OEM's 80W wired charging tech, and to charge wirelessly at 50W: a combination out of reach of even the latest top-end foldable devices. This might make the "X Fold S" impressive even in its own category - although it is unlikely to make it any cheaper.
