vivo X Fold2 unboxing confirms design and improved user interface
The vivo X Fold2 teasers continue to come from the Boao Forum 2023 for Asia, which is taking place on the island of Hainan in China. A local blogger took the device for an unboxing, later reposted by vivo on Weibo, clearly as a coordinated marketing event, letting fans learn more about the upcoming foldable.
The new phone will have a 3/4 red leather panel on the back, while the remaining 1/4 has a glossy finish. While handling the X Fold2, we saw new UI features from OriginOS Ocean, including a taskbar for better app management, multi-window modes, and simple gestures – none of which was available in previous X Fold phones.
The device clearly comes with two under-screen fingerprint scanners – one on the cover screen, another on the foldable screen in the lower right corner. This is the first time we’ve seen confirmation of the feature, which is a first for a foldable phone.
The hinge of the vivo X Fold2 is also improved, the blogger reveals. It now stays in all positions and angles, providing a neat kickstand for watching video content or taking photos and videos. It’s also around 10% lighter, which will be a huge improvement over the predecessors that weigh over 310 grams.
The official unveiling of the vivo X Fold2 will take place in April. We expect to know the launch date in the next few days, given that the phone is almost ready to be sold.
The event is also supposed to be the landing stage for an incoming tablet, vivo Pad 2, which made a sneaky appearance in the video and was part of the vivo booth at the business conference.
