vivo is now a manufacturer of a foldable smartphone as it recently launched the vivo X Fold in China.
The first foldable smartphone is launched alongside the vivo X Note and the vivo Pad.
The vivo Pad is vivo’s first ever tablet by the Chinese company.

The vivo X Note comes with a 7-inch 2K AMOLED display with support of 120Hz refresh rate.
It is also powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 and vivo’s self-developed V1 chip. On top of that, there is an industry-leading 3D ultrasonic big fingerprint area sensor, which provides a seamless and hassle-free unlocking experience.
The X Note comes in three storage options – 8GB RAM + 256GB storage, 12GB RAM + 256GB storage and 12GB RAM + 512GB storage.
The base model is priced at CNY 5,999 (roughly RM3,990), while the 12GB RAM options are priced at CNY 6,499 (roughly RM4,320) and CNY 6,999 (roughly RM4,650) respectively.

The vivo Pad has a fairly thin bezel around the display, convertible with support of a keyboard accessory and stylus that magnetically attaches to the device to deliver a laptop-like experience.
The vivo Pad runs on the Snapdragon 870 processor with a new branch of vivo’s software, Origin OS HD.
Built-in with NFC, users can pair their vivo phone with the vivo Pad, which will mirror the phone’s display on the tablet, where can interact with phone apps and easily transfer files between the two devices.
There are two versions available – 8GB + 128GB and 8GB + 256GB storage options, priced at CNY 2,499 (roughly RM1,660) and CNY 2,999 (roughly RM1,990) respectively.
