Vivo announced the world’s lightest book-style foldable smartphone yesterday, and the device could get a global variant. The device in question is the Vivo X Fold 3, and its ‘Pro’ sibling also arrived during the same event.

Both smartphones were announced in China. Vivo kept its foldable smartphones available in China only, but this generation could spread its wings. It would be about time, as OnePlus, OPPO, HONOR, and more China-based companies already delivered their foldables to markets outside of China.

The world’s lightest book-style foldable could get a global variant

Why do we think it’s coming to more markets? Well, Vivo hasn’t confirmed anything just yet. We do have two reasons to believe that both smartphones are coming to more markets.

An Industry source confirmed to 91Mobiles that the Vivo X Fold 3 will arrive to India. Furthermore, the Vivo X Fold 3 appeared in a certification listing in Indonesia, where Vivo phones are actually quite popular. We’re talking about the SDPPI Indonesia Telecom certification.

Devices in both India and Indonesia do come with global software on them, though it could be slightly adapted to the country the phones are launching in, of course. The point is, Google services do come pre-installed.

It remains to be see what other markets will the phones arrive to

It remains to be seen if Vivo aims to offer these two foldable smartphones in other markets, but at least we’ll have global variants this time around. If you really end up wanting one, you can always import it.

The Vivo X Fold 3 Pro is the more powerful of the two phones. It comes with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC. The Vivo X Fold 3 is fueled by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, but it’s both thinner and lighter than its sibling.

The VIvo X Fold 3 is lighter than the HONOR Magic V2, quite a bit, and the Magic V2 held the crown thus far. It is thinner than the Magic V2 when unfolded, but also 0.1mm thicker when folded, which is negligible. Vivo really pushed the ante with the Vivo X Fold 3.
