Vivo X Fold3 Pro: Global launch on the Horizon?

Vivo X Fold3 Pro

Vivo’s latest foldable phone, the X Fold3 Pro, launched in China in March, but eagle-eyed tech enthusiasts might be wondering: will it see a global release?

While vivo hasn’t officially confirmed anything yet, there are signs pointing towards a possible international debut.

When Vivo introduced the X Fold3 and X Fold3 Pro back in March, we initially anticipated them to remain exclusive to China, following the trend of their predecessors.

However, there seems to be a pleasant surprise in store, as a global version has made an appearance on Geekbench.

A phone carrying the model number V2330 achieved a multi-core score of over 6,300, hinting at its preparation for an international launch.

This very device was previously certified in Indonesia more than a month ago, confirming its identity as the X Fold3 Pro.

One hint is the X Fold3 Pro’s certification in Indonesia. This typically precedes a phone’s launch in a specific region, suggesting Indonesia could be one of the first countries outside China to see the foldable phone.

Additionally, during the X Fold3 Pro’s Chinese launch, vivo acknowledged they were “in discussions” regarding global availability, fueling speculation for a wider release.

It boasts a Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, 16 GB LPDDR5X RAM, and a 50 MP main camera featuring an OmniVision sensor.

The X Fold3 Pro boasts impressive specs, making it a strong contender in the foldable market. More so, with the powerful Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor, large foldable OLED display, and a versatile triple-camera system, it could be a tempting option for users looking for a premium foldable experience.

In China, the vivo X Fold3 Pro is priced at CNY9,999, roughly translating to $1,350/€1,250, but we anticipate the global version to carry a slightly higher price tag.
