Both the internal and external screens support a high refresh rate of 120Hz. Thus, when switching between them, users won’t feel any difference or inconvenience. Also, both screens come with a new generation of fingerprint recognition technology – a 3D ultrasonic dual-screen fingerprint. The latter has more vital anti-environmental interference ability, faster unlocking speed, and higher security.

The company has also optimized hinges, creases, etc. The hinge has 174 parts; it uses six-layer aerospace-grade materials; it is lightweight but durable. The company proves, in the laboratory tests, it exceeded 300,000 times bending. At the same time, the phone got the TUV Folding Worry-Free Certification.

For creases, the VIVO X Fold+ uses zirconium alloy floating mid-plate, UTG ultra-tough glass, and the industry’s smallest 2.3mm bending radius.

It eliminates not only creases but also the hinge system supports multi-angle hovering. The manufacturer has developed various application scenarios for this.
