Leaked images show a Vivo X Fold 3 controlling macOS

There’s a pretty well-defined line between Apple products and other products. iOS, iPadOS, and macOS exist only on Apple’s devices, but that’s not stopping some companies from blurring the line. According to a new leak, it appears that the Vivo X Fold 3 will be able to clone and remote control macOS.

This honestly sounds more like a clever engineer experimenting with adding absurd software to phones rather than a legitimate feature. We’ve seen this many times before with people loading full Windows 11 until a Pixel 6 or porting Wordle into a Game Boy. However, this is not the case this time.

Vivo X Fold 3 users might be able to remote control their macOS devices

This information comes to us from a leak, so you’ll definitely want to take it with a grain of salt. We’re talking about information that has not been officially confirmed by the company. At any point, something could change before the official launch.

Ice Universe made a post on the Chinese social media site Weibo, and it shows us some interesting pictures. We see an image of a foldable phone, which is the Vivo X Fold 3. However, looking at the interface, we see something pretty odd. On it, we actually see it running a full macOS interface.

Now, this isn’t a case of a person hacking or modding the phone and loading macOS onto it. The phone is merely mirroring the macOS from a Mac computer. Also, the phone is actually able to remote control it. So, technically, the phone isn’t running macOS. However, it may as well be.

According to reports, this is all because of a few features within the Vivo X Fold 3’s software. We are unaware of what these features are, but they facilitate this functionality.

Right now, we’re still following leaks and rumors surrounding this upcoming phone, and we’re really excited about it. It appears that this phone will be an absolute beast when it launches. It’s a phone, just like the OnePlus Open (Review), that will really give Samsung a run for its money. We expect Vivo to launch this phone around the end of the first quarter of 2024, so there’s not much more time to wait
