According to recent reports, Vivo has started developing a second-generation X Fold, which would reportedly be the first of its kind to ship with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 CPU used in modern flagships like the OnePlus 11. The supposed substantial upgrades don’t stop there, either.
On what is officially Vivo’s first attempt to produce such an Android device, the original X Fold and its iterative improvement, the X Fold+, can be said to have shot to the top of the foldable smartphone game. Their future sequel, though, might strive to outdo rivals like Samsung’s rumored Galaxy Z Fold5 in 2023 by going even further.

The X Fold 2 (or, maybe, X Fold2), may upgrade to levels of performance and power beyond even the most powerful flexible-display devices of today, according to the trustworthy leaker Digital Chat Station.
Its rumored 4,800mAh battery may not offer much of a benefit over the X Fold+, but it could charge significantly faster, at a rumored rate of 120 watts (W). This would be a first for its category and would allow it to finally compete with some traditional premium smartphones like the Xiaomi 13 Pro and in 11.
With its reported status as the first foldable smartphone to be powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, that alleged update may fit in well. However, Digital Talk Station has yet to provide any suggestions regarding the speculated second-generation flagship-grade foldable phablet from Vivo, including a debut date, pricing, or the possibility of an international release.
