The previous Vivo X Fold 2 models were confined to the Chinese market, and the successor series, including the Vivo X Fold 3 and the Pro model, was launched in China in March. The Vivo X Fold 3 Pro is one of the thinner, good-looking foldable smartphones, measuring 5.2mm in thickness (unfolded) and 11.2mm when folded. 

The Chinese variant has sported a large 8.03-inch foldable screen and a 6.53-inch outer screen. Both have AMOLED displays with refresh rates of up to 120Hz. A large circular module at the back comprises a triple camera setup featuring a 50MP primary camera, a 50MP ultra-wide angle lens, and a 64MP ZEISS-powered telephoto lens. The cover and foldable screen equip a 32MP selfie shooter for selfies and video conferencing.

The Vivo X Fold 3 Pro is powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 and features up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB of onboard storage. Keeping the lights on is a large 5700mAh battery capacity aided by 100W fast charge support. Out of the box, the device ships with Android 14-based OriginOS 4.

It is encouraging to see Vivo expanding its folding technology prowess to other markets, otherwise dominated by Samsung, OnePlus, and Oppo with their Galaxy Z Fold 5, OnePlus Open, and OPPO Find N3 foldable phones. Venturing through India’s diverse smartphone market is a promising move for the upcoming Vivo foldable phone.
