With Samsung leading the folding smartphone technology with Xiaomi and Google entering the race, Vivo has decided to take part in the same race that the company aims to launch a folding smartphone this year.
The phone that is said to be called “Vivo Nex Fold” has been leaked by a notable “Ice Universe” tipster in a recent tweet who said there would be no Vivo Nex 5 this year and instead a foldable phone comes out.
It will become the largest foldable in terms of panel size. We look forward to January.

In addition, Display Supply Chain Consultants CEO Ross Young responded to Ice Universe saying that the Nex Fold will be the largest in-folding device in terms of display which means it will be larger than the Mi Mix Fold and the Huawei Mate X2 which both have large displays.
It is said that the Nex Fold will be introduced in December and then it will be available in the market in January 2022.
