Vivo X Fold "Plus" is tipped to launch soon following the renewed Android flagship's TENAA appearance
Fans of new foldable devices that pose the greatest potential challenge to Samsung's Galaxy Z Fold4 flagship may be glad to know that the Vivo V2229A is now a TENAA-certified device and, as such, is poised to debut soon - well, in China, at the least.
The V229A is patently a flexible-display smartphone, that, despite the lack of precise dimensions uploaded by TENAA thus far, is also highly reminiscent of the X Fold thus far. It even still has the branded racing stripe of that flagship's gray color SKU, with no sign of the rumored new Deep Red colorway as yet.
Then again, TENAA has now determined that the device, said to launch as the X Fold
S Plus, does indeed have a battery upgrade. It has been estimated to have 2,300mAh dual cells; therefore, as the first-gen Vivo foldable was found to have a capacity of 2x2,255mAh in the same testing, the putative remixed model may indeed be touted as having graduated from the OEM's current, class-leading 4,600mAh limit for foldables.
The regulator has yet to add any processing stats to its new webpage, however, thus leaving us unable to confirm an upgrade to the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor as yet (currently thought to be the other main point of the refresh).
In any case, the X Fold 'Plus' is unlikely to come any cheaper than its immediate forebear, especially if this one happens to make the breakthrough into the international market this time: it can easily cost around €1,500 (~US$1,495) at least to import one into Europe.
