Vivo X Fold 3 Pro got approval from the 3C authority of China and appeared as the model number V2337A. Now, another variant of the foldable phone, the Vivo X Fold 3 with the model number V2303A, has received certification from the Chinese regulatory platform. Speculation suggests that both models of the X Fold 3 series will make their debut in the Chinese market later this month.

The 3C certifications for the Vivo X Fold 3 hint at the inclusion of a V8073L0E0-CN power adapter, indicating potential support for up to 80W charging.

Previously, the Vivo X Fold 3 Pro was spotted with a 120W charger at 3C certification. It is rumoured that the Pro model will offer 50W wireless charging, while the standard variant may not support this feature, according to Gizmochina.

Additionally, reports suggest that the X Fold 3 could house a 5,600mAh battery, while the Pro version might come with a slightly larger 5,700mAh battery. Furthermore, it has been revealed that the two foldable phones will be powered by different chipsets, with the X Fold 3 likely to feature the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and the Pro variant equipped with the Snapdragon 8 Gen 3.

The Vivo X Fold 3 and X Fold 3 Pro display sizes are still unknown. However, it is anticipated that both devices will sport internal screens with a resolution of 2480 x 2200 pixels, while the outer displays may offer 1080 x 2520 pixels. 

The Pro variant is expected to include ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint scanners on both displays, although it remains uncertain whether the more affordable X Fold 3 will have a side-mounted fingerprint scanner or feature ultrasonic in-screen fingerprint technology.

In terms of camera, both phones are expected to feature a 50-megapixel OmniVision OV50H primary camera with OIS and a 50-megapixel ultra-wide lens. While the X Fold 3 may come with a 50-megapixel telephoto camera supporting up to 40x zoom as its third camera, the X Fold 3 Pro is likely to replace it with an OmniVision OV64B 64-megapixel periscope telephoto lens.
