He vivo X Fold3 Pro, thrown out in China in March, but it was finally introduced in India and Indonesia a few days ago, making it vivo’s first foldable smartphone to launch outside its home country. The vivo X Fold3 Pro comes in white and celestial black, but the brand will only launch the black version in international markets. We received one to review and here are our first impressions of vivo’s third-generation foldable.

The vivo X Fold3 Pro comes in a square-shaped box similar to the X100 and X100Pro. It includes a SIM eject tool, the usual documents, a charging cable and a 120W power adapter. Our Indian unit, the subject of this article, did not come with a protective case, but we were told the retail box will include one.

The vivo X Fold3 Pro weighs 236g and is 11.2mm thick when folded. When unfolded, it is 5.2mm thick. The smartphone’s cover display measures 6.53″ diagonally. It is a 120Hz 8T LTPO AMOLED panel with a resolution of 2,748 x 1,172 pixels, a pixel density of 457 ppi, a maximum brightness of 4,500 nits, and support for HDR10+ and Dolby Vision.

The cover has a matte finish and we found it to be resistant to fingerprint smudges during our time with the phone. It’s nice to hold and the X Fold3 Pro feels quite comfortable to hold in its folded state.

vivo has used the ultra-durable carbon fiber hinge weighing 14.98g for the X Fold3 Pro, allowing the foldable screen to remain open at a 60˚-120˚ angle for different use cases. It also does a good job of keeping the phone almost gap-free when folded.

vivo also claims that the X Fold3 Pro’s hinge can last 500,000 folds without developing any creases. The smartphone has a fold, but it is only visible when you look at it from certain angles. You won’t notice it often when looking directly at the screen, and while you may feel it when using the phone, you can get used to it quickly. It will barely be noticeable when looking at the screen and using the phone.

That said, when unfolded, the Vivo X Fold3 Pro is absolutely stylish, making it very comfortable to use.
