Rumor | Vivo X Flip challenges the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 on Geekbench with more RAM
Vivo has broken into the premium Android foldable smartphone space with the compelling X Fold, and its subsequent refresh the X Fold+. Now, should the latest leaks prove accurate, the X Flip is on the way as a clamshell version of the latter.
Furthermore, those specs may enable it to emerge as the latest serious headache for what might be the best-known device of its form-factor, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4. A new device with a typically Vivo-like model number, the V2256A, has arrived on Geekbench to give this rumor more potential weight.
The device runs on Android 13 powered by a Qualcomm taro chipset with a max clock of 3.19GHz: the same Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC as the Z Flip4, in other words. The 2 devices have attained fairly similar Geekbench 6 scores, with the X Flip taking a slight lead in multi-core scores, thus far.
On the other hand, the "V2256A" apparently needs 12GB of RAM to hit those heights, whereas the average Z Flip4 has never been issued with more than 8GB. In addition, should the X Flip really exist, Vivo may be advised to release it sooner rather than later: high-end as it seems to be now, it would fall behind with its late-2022 processor soon enough.
