A formal announcement event for the vivo X Fold+ has already been scheduled for September 26 at 7 PM local time in China. The addition of Qi wireless charging at up to 11W to the list of information about the phone brings the total to many.
As official as they come, the source is. The X Fold+ is approved for the Qi Extended Power Profile, which, as a reminder, permits charging at up to 15W, while the folding can only utilise 11W. Now, knowing that the vivo X Fold can wirelessly charge at up to 50W, we are inclined to think that the X Fold+’s reverse might account for this 11W rating.
As for other specs of the X Fold+, the company has already confirmed quite a few things. We know the phone will run on Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, have 80W fast charging (up from 66W in the previous model), and that over 5,000 Android apps have been optimized or the OriginOS Ocean version for the X Fold+.
Other speculative features include a 4,730mAh battery, 12GB of RAM, and 512GB of storage (up from 4,600mAh on the original). Moreover, a 6.53-inch exterior display, and an inside foldable 8.03-inch 120Hz display. A 50MP primary camera, a 48MP ultrawide, a 12MP portrait camera, an 8MP periscope, and a 32MP selfie camera are reportedly part of the camera system. We are unable to predict if the X Fold+ will initially only be sold in China, like its predecessor, or whether a global release is later planned. I certainly hope the latter.
