The Honor brand, which spun off from the Chinese giant Huawei due to tough United States sanctions, is designing several smartphones with flexible displays. Information about the characteristics of one of them was at the disposal of some insiders.
Honor Magic X foldable smartphone will have an 8-inch flexible display
According to reports, Honor is preparing a large device that, when unfolded, can easily replace a tablet. In particular, the flexible panel will be 8 inches diagonally. On the outside of the case, there will be a 6.5-inch screen.
The flexible display is rumored to be ordered from the Chinese company BOE. It is currently developing advanced ultra-thin glass to protect such devices from damage during daily use.
Judging by the published data, Honor is preparing a smartphone in the format of a book with a flexible panel that folds into the body. We do not yet know other characteristics of the device.
Earlier, on the website of the China’s National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA), information appeared that Honor had registered the Honor Magic Fold and Honor Magic Flip trademarks. The device described above may debut under the name Honor Magic Fold. The Honor Magic Flip will be the name for the upcoming clamshell smartphone.
