Rumor | Vivo X Fold Plus with 12GB of RAM and a 120Hz display scores nearly 20% higher than its predecessor on AnTuTu Benchmark
Vivo has already (proudly and effusively) hyped its upcoming X Fold Plus (or Fold+) as an Android device even more premium than its first-gen, yet already class-leading, predecessor. Nevertheless, these teasers have left its potential audience holding its breath over whether the newer model will have a display (or displays, rather) of a quality as high as its non-Plus counterpart. Now, according to AnTuTu, the 2 hinged devices are indeed comparable in this respect.
According to the benchmark's Chinese-language blog, the X Fold+ (or "vivo V2229A") has made its way onto its database, in a leak purporting to confirm a 120Hz refresh rate spec for the updated foldable smartphone. This spec is now said to help the impending device achieve a score of no less than 1,100,438.
The X Fold, on the other hand, is currently ranked at #33 (just above the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra with the same SoC) on the same benchmark with a total score of 929,796. Therefore, should the new result truly pertain to the Fold+, its switch from the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 to its own Plus variant has resulted in a boost to performance of up to ~18.4% in this test.
The refreshed model is also portrayed as running the same Android 12-based OS of the inaugural X Fold, and to have at least 1 12GB RAM/512GB internal storage SKU (on that note, the X Fold as listed on AnTuTu has 256GB by contrast).
Therefore, this X Fold+ might be for those who have been holding out for incremental upgrades such as these without waiting for whatever potential 2023 might hold (and who, most likely, have the money to burn on it).
