On Tuesday, smartphone maker Vivo held its first ever Technology Day 2022 event in India and showcased its first foldable smartphone- the Vivo X Fold. I spent around an hour with the Vivo X Fold and can say that now, Samsung needs to worry a bit as it is going to get some really tough competition. Though the company has not yet revealed the launch date of the phone in India, it can be said that the phone has features to challenge leading foldable smartphone making companies like Samsung.

On comparing Vivo X Fold with the recently launched Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4, I observed that the display or the screen of Vivo X Fold is wider compared to Galaxy Z Fold 4. Also, users of the foldable phones must have noticed the crease which is formed in the middle of the screen as it is unfolded. Vivo X Fold comes with a unibody structure of the hinge that supports the display of the phone when unfolded, reducing the crease. With so much already said, here are some more of the interesting details you need to know about the Vivo X Fold:
