In true unreleased device fashion, vivo X Fold was spotted in a Chinese subway station with a thick protective case meant to shoulder it from the eyes of the masses.

The X Fold comes with a square-shaped inward folding screen and by the looks of it there is no visible crease in the middle portion of the panel. According to speculation vivo’s complex hinge mechanism is the key component for the gapless folding display. The folding screen is also expected to be covered in UTG glass.
