Vivo X Fold 3 Pro features an advanced camera hardware both at the rear and upfront. The primary optics hardware on the back panel has a familiar design as the X100 series where the round module is headlined by a 50MP main camera sensor with OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) and an f/1.68 aperture. This main lens is clubbed with an additional 50MP wide-angle sensor, and a 64MP telephoto sensor with OIS and 3x optical zoom.

At the front, the Fold 3 Pro employs a 32MP selfie camera which has fixed focus and an f/2.4 aperture. Just like the premium X series, the X Fold 3 Pro also has a myriad of camera features and shooting modes. But what grabbed our attention is the Hover mode where you can capture pics and preview the shots simultaneously on the dual screen.

Besides, the Hand-held Astro mode is another unique feature offered by the X Fold 3 Pro cameras. Both rear and front cameras of the X Fold 3 Pro have performed well and we are expecting the potential to be higher. We will be sharing the complete camera performance in the comprehensive review that’ll be uploaded soon.

Vivo has made multiple enhancements with the latest Funtouch OS user interface and also included AI capabilities. Split screen view is also improved and now looks more practical with usage.
