According to word on the grapevine, Vivo will bring a new foldable phone to the market shortly. This device, the Vivo X Fold S or Vivo X Fold Plus, will compete directly with the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 in the Chinese market and new leaks have now revealed most details of the premium foldable ahead of its launch.

Vivo looks set to bring another foldable phone to the market. The company launched the Vivo X Fold earlier in the year and is geared to refresh it shortly with the Vivo X Fold S, with details of the foldable now leaking ahead of release.

According to Digital Chat Station, the Vivo X Fold S could actually be marketed as the Vivo X Fold Plus. The new foldable will, of course, be aimed straight at the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 in the Chinese market. Supposedly, the Vivo X Fold Plus will feature a 50 MP main camera, aided by a 48 MP ultra-wide-angle camera, a 12 MP 2x portrait camera, and an 8 MP 5x periscope zoom lens. At the front of the phone will be a 16 MP selfie camera. Those are impressive camera specs, and ensure that the foldable doesn't lose out to the Galaxy Z Fold4 in that aspect—on paper, at least.

The Vivo X Fold Plus will trade in the Vivo X Fold's Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 for the newer, improved Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. The upcoming foldable will see some other improvements over the device it refreshes: it's expected to see a battery capacity increase from 4600 mAh to 4700 mAh, with charging also going up from 66 W to 80 W. Those are more impressive than what the Galaxy Z Fold4 offers, too. 

The Vivo X Fold Plus is expected to debut later this month and, if priced like the Vivo X Fold, should undercut the Galaxy Z Fold4. For some perspective, the X Fold started at CNY 8,999, while the Galaxy Z Fold4 begins at CNY 12,999.
