Vivo has been embracing innovative features and form factors, and so it's no surprise to learn it might be making a foldable phone, too.

The company, which recently announced its new subbrand iQOO, already has an incoming pop-up camera phone and just showed off a another phone with no buttons or ports. Now, it's supposedly prepping some Galaxy Flex competition, with a new foldable phone. While we haven't seen real images of it just yet - renders of the device have surfaced via the Chinese social network Weibo.

The unverified renders show a tablet-like device that folds into a tall phone. Notice it actually folds out, keeping the screens on the outside. The phone is also lacking buttons and ports, suggesting it will be similar to the new APEX 2019 phone. Unfortunately, that's about all we can glean from this so-called leak. SlashGear noted the leakster claimed Vivo's foldable would cost over $1,000.

We haven't confirmed any of this information and suggest you take it with a grain of salt. Remember, we expect to hear more from Vivo at MWC 2019. The Chinese company is supposed to debut its Vivo 15 Pro smartphone at the show, among other things. Maybe we'll see this phone, too. - PAY MONTHLY PHONES The Samsung Galaxy S10+ is now available on EE who have been awarded the UK’s best network for the fifth year running.
