Vivo X Flip leaked mockup reveals familiar design plus display details
The Vivo X90 series is expected to hit global markets on January 31. As Vivo gears up for launch, more details about its leaked foldable phone have surfaced online. While the Vivo X Fold, which was recently upgraded to the Vivo X Fold+, has yet to see a global launch, there’s more news on another foldable device with a smaller clamshell form factor. . Called Vivo X Flip, the device will be the second model with a different foldable form factor to be added to Vivo’s lineup of high-end devices. A leaked mockup of the device revealed both its front and back design as well as more details about its screens. There is also an interesting information about its cameras.
The freshly leaked mockup comes from a Weibo post and was first spotted by Playfuldroid. It reveals the front and back design of the unreleased Vivo X Flip in full. Compared to the previous leak, which only showed the top half of the device, the new mockup shows the number of cameras, as well as the location of the volume rocker and power button. The design lines up nicely with the previous leak showcasing the exterior display placed horizontally on the upper half of the case, which also houses two rear-facing cameras on the exterior and a punch-hole selfie camera on the display. interior folding. Cutouts for the USB port and speaker are also visible at the bottom.
As noted in the post, the inner screen is 1080 pixels wide (when held vertically), while the outer panel is 682 pixels wide. Another interesting element that was visible in a previous artist’s rendering of the leaked mockup is the Zeiss branding. Vivo has worked with Zeiss on all of its recently launched premium flagships. The branding shown in the leak could hint at better optical quality or camera performance, which is hard to find on slim clamshell foldables.
The recently announced Oppo Find N2 Flip also has a larger exterior display. It makes more sense to offer a larger exterior display as this has been a pain point with Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip series since launch. The Galaxy Z Flip 4 featured a similarly smaller screen, which was only good for showing notifications and had little practical use; as most actions required opening the main screen, according to our review.
Previously leaked details of the Vivo X Flip revealed that the device will offer a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 SoC, which is also present in the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4. More recently leaked renders revealed the horizontally placed display. As always, the details have been revealed by an unknown source, so we advise our readers to take the above information with a grain of salt.
