    Samsung is not the only brand that planned to release foldable smartphones this year. Xiaomi launched the MIX Fold 2 just one day after the launch of the Galaxy Z Fold 4, and OnePlus, OPPO, and Vivo are expected to launch new foldable phones in the coming months. Vivo is bringing a refreshed version of the Vivo X Fold that debuted earlier this year.

    Vivo X Fold S is likely to feature a wider display, bigger battery, and faster charging than Galaxy Z Fold 4

    It is being reported that Vivo will launch a slightly improved version of the Vivo X Fold next month. It could be named the Vivo X Fold S, and it will come equipped with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, the same chipset that powers the Galaxy Z Fold 4 and the Galaxy Z Flip 4. The device will also come with a slightly bigger battery (4,700mAh vs X Fold's 4,600mAh) and faster charging (80W vs X Fold's 66W).

    The rest of the phone's specifications, including displays, storage, RAM, and cameras, are expected to be similar to the Vivo X Fold. If that's the case, Vivo's upcoming foldable phone could feature a 6.53-inch OLED cover display with Full HD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. On the inside, it could have an 8-inch OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate.

    It could have flagship-grade cameras, featuring a 50MP primary camera with OIS, a 48MP ultrawide camera, a 12MP telephoto camera with 2x optical zoom, and an 8MP telephoto camera with 5x optical zoom. The Vivo X Fold S could feature a 16MP selfie camera on the cover display.

    Other features of the upcoming Vivo foldable device could include stereo speakers, an under-display fingerprint reader, 5G, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.2, GPS, NFC, a USB Type-C port, 50W fast wireless charging, and 10W reverse wireless charging. In comparison, the Vivo X Fold S seems to have a slightly better camera setup, a bigger battery, and faster charging.

    However, the phone will likely be limited to the Chinese market, and until Vivo brings its foldable phones to other countries, Samsung will likely remain a monopoly in the segment.
