Vivo X Turn: Everything we understand up until now

Vivo currently has 2 collapsible mobile phones available through the Vivo X Fold and X Fold+, although neither has made it from China so far.

Vivo X Turn: Everything we understand up until now


It currently appears that another device remains in the works, this time around with a turn telephone design that would certainly make it a rival to the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and Oppo Find N2 Turn. So, what can we anticipate and will we have the ability to buy it outside China?


Here is all we understand up until now about the Vivo X Turn.


When will the Vivo X Turn be launched?

There is no official verification from Vivo yet on whether the X Turn is a truth, not to mention when we might see it show up. We have seen a message on Weibo from a dependable Chinese technology tipster called Electronic Chat Terminal that reported ‘Vivo X Turn SM8475…coming soon'.


Currently, this is hardly a strong announcement, so it is still feasible that the X Turn may be a bit way off yet. To see when it may be introduced, we can just truly appearance at the previous collapsible routines.


Here is when they were launched in China:


  • Vivo X Fold - April 
  • 2022Vivo X Fold+ -
  •  September 2022


It isn't a lot to take place, we understand, but as foldables are still a brand-new category for most manufacturers this has the tendency to hold true. The Vivo X90 range was launched in November 2022, which stands for the various other front runner models, so it may be that Vivo holds off for some time before exposing the X Turn.


Additionally, with the Fold launching in April and after that obtaining an updated model 6 months later on, there is constantly the chance that Vivo decides to have a collapsible launch home window in the first fifty percent of the year, while its standard premium models come out in the second. Keeping that in mind, we'd maintain an eager eye on April 2023.


Whether the device will be launched beyond China remains a mystery. Vivo's 2 foldables have not up until now, but some of its various other front runner phones do leave China. Rival Oppo has brought its first turn telephone, the Find N2 Turn, to Europe while leaving the book-style Find N2 China-only, so it is feasible Vivo will follow a comparable model.


How a lot will the Vivo X Turn cost?

With no statements from Vivo, we do not truly have any idea how a lot the X Filp will cost. The just hints we can use is those of comparable devices in the marketplace. Here is how the usual suspects line-up:


  • Samsung Galaxy Z Turn 4: $999/£999/€1,099
  • Motorola Razr 2022: £949/€1,199 (approx. $1,199)
  • Oppo Find N2 Turn: £849/€1,199 (approx. $1,050)
  • Huawei P50 Pocket: €1,299 (approx. $1,385/£1,115)


As you can see, there isn't an inexpensive one among them. Collapsible displays still cost a great deal of money to develop and implement, so anticipate anything from Vivo to find with a price about the $1,000/£1,000 note.


What about the Vivo X Turn specifications and design?

Vivo X Turn: Everything we understand up until now


It is probably not a surprise that at this phase we do not truly know a lot about what Vivo has in store for its first flip-style telephone. But, that does not imply there have not been some rumours beginning to surface that toss a bit light on the mystical device.


Beginning with the design, a rumour put ahead by GizmoChina is that the second screen outside of the Vivo X Turn will be straight, as seen on the Motorola Razr 2022. This was supported by another post from Electronic Chat Terminal that described a rectangle-shaped external panel, but also a round video cam real estate over it.


In the feed listed below the remark was also an idea make from another Weibo user called Celebrity Ozawa that displayed how the finished Vivo X Turn could appearance.


A comparable design has stood out up in another picture of Vivo's plans. Again we see a landscape rectangle-shaped cover display - obviously 682 pixels wide - with a round video cam component, however in this situation with simply 2 lenses, and a Zeiss logo design put within the ring. From this we can also see that the main screen is most likely to be 1080p, also known as Complete HD, which makes good sense - so are the main displays on various other current turn phones.


When it comes to specifications, GSMArena records that the new device will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. This isn't quite the top-of-the-line stood for by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, but it is pretty shut. We've seen that relatively corroborated in a Geekbench listing for a telephone with model number V2256A, thought to be the X Turn, which features the 8+ Gen 1 sustained by 12GB of RAM and operating Android 13.


Leaker Electronic Chat Terminal has recommended lots of further specification information on Weibo. He says the main screen will be a 6.8in, 120Hz OLED panel - which sounds possible enough - which the telephone will load a relatively large 4400mAh battery with 44W billing, which would certainly be outstanding for a turn telephone.


Most fascinating is his record on the video cams, recommending specific specifications for both main lenses: a 50Mp IMX866 main video cam signed up with by a 12Mp IMX663 ultrawide.


Apart from these tidbits, there is absolutely nothing else we understand up until now, but of course we will be upgrading this article as more information emerge. Until after that, you can have a look at our overview of the best new phones being available in 2023 to see whether you want to wait on the Vivo X Turn.
