Vivo X Fold will compete against the likes of the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and the Oppo Find N. It might launch in global markets following its debut in China. The official launch details are awaited. Meanwhile, the design schematics reveal that the phone has a hole-punch cutout at the top centre of the cover screen.

The design schematic does not show the inner display of the foldable phone. Reports suggest that there will be a hole-punch cutout at the top right half of the foldable display.
On the back, the phone has a huge rectangular block that houses a circular camera module. There are four large cutouts in the circular camera module, one of which seems to be for the periscope camera. The main, ultrawide and possibly another portrait/ telephoto camera will be offered on the X Fold. It also has two tiny cutouts for the microphone and other sensors. The LED flash is placed outside the camera module on the rectangular block.
Other leaked specs include a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC. The cover OLED screen will be 6.5-inch tall and come with a Full HD+ resolution. On the inside, there will be an 8-inch screen with a QHD+ resolution. The foldable screen will also come with a 120Hz refresh rate display.
