Vivo has recently launched the Vivo X90 series of smartphones in China. The X90 Pro+ debuted as the world’s first Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 phone, whereas the X90 and X90 are the first-ever phones powered by the Dimensity 9200 chipset. Vivo will shift its focus to foldable phones in 2023.
The machine-translated text of Digital Chat Station’s Weibo post reads that “the new flagship and main models have been released before the year.” It appears that the tipster could be saying that the Vivo X90 lineup that was previously expected to debut in early 2023 has met with an early release.
This year, Vivo unveiled the Vivo X80 series and X90 series in China. DCS’ Weibo post suggests that the company will switch to releasing only one X-series device starting next year.
The Vivo X Fold 2 and the Vivo X Flip (the first clamshell Vivo phone with a foldable screen) will debut in the first half of 2023, claims the tipster. The Vivo Pad 2, packed with flagship specs, will also debut in the same period.
Earlier this year, Vivo unveiled the Vivo X Note, its flagship phone with a massive 7-inch display. It appears that the company has no plans to release its successor in 2023.
Rumors are rife that the Vivo X Flip will be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1. Unfortunately, nothing else is known about the device. Shown above is a concept render of the X Flip, which reveals how it will look.
