Today, a VIVO executive announced that the company had started pre-research on folding screen smartphones four years ago. There have been dozens of versions but none of them were approved.
According to the VIVO executive, the “screen” of the folding screen smartphone is the top priority. The screen experience cannot be sacrificed because of the folding form.
“The inner screen must be large enough and good enough, and the look and feel should not be affected by the deepening of the creases due to frequent opening and closing for a long time. The outer screen is also used a lot, and the size must be the mainstream size. Plus, its effect must be flagship level. The switching of internal and external screens cannot have problems such as frame control and color difference. This involves screen selection, adjustment, especially hinge technology, which requires a very complex system engineering.”
There should also be a screen fingerprint scanner. He said that VIVO is the pioneer of screen fingerprint technology. So it cannot give up this feature anyway. They worked hard to overcome the difficulties involved in materials, acoustics and structure, etc. In effect, they created a “more mature and reliable folding screen smartphone”.
Today, VIVO officially stated that the spring new product launch conference will be held on April 11. At that time, the company will launch its first folding screen smartphone, the VIVO X Fold. At the same time, the manufacturer will release the VIVO X Note large-screen smartphone and the VIVO Pad tablet.
