Vivo X Fold2: New leak reveals specifications including 1,800-nit folding display
A new leak has provided fresh information about the X Fold2, Vivo's next-generation foldable smartphone. Likely debuting alongside the X Flip, the X Fold2 will contain an 8.03-inch foldable display with a 2,160 x 1,916-pixel native resolution and a 120 Hz refresh rate. While those specifications are in line with other flagship foldable smartphones, Vivo claims to have eked up to 1,800 nits out of the Samsung E6 display.
Moreover, the device's cover display, also based around the Samsung E6 panel, is rated for up to 1,600 nits. As one image below shows, the X Fold2's 6.53-inch cover display will operate natively at 2,520 x 1,080 pixels and 120 Hz. Like its predecessor, the X Fold2 will offer twin ultrasonic fingerprint scanners too, one per display. The same leak confirms the device's 120 W wired and 50 W wireless charging capabilities as well, which were the subject of an earlier leak.
Furthermore, the X Fold2 will come with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, LPDDR5X RAM and UFS 4.0 flash storage. These flagship-level components will be powered by batteries totalling 4,800 mAh, which is a 200 mAh higher combined capacity than its predecessor. The X Fold2 should be approximately 10% lighter than the original X Fold though, thanks to a revised hinge. Improvements do not stop there either, with Vivo also including 50 MP primary and 12 MP ultra-wide-angle cameras that it will complement with an in-house V2 ISP. The Vivo X Fold2 will launch in China later this month, but details on a global launch are pending for now.
