Since its separation from Huawei, Honor has been slowly gaining ground in the smartphone market. According to Weibo tech blogger, @Changan Digital King, Honor’s first foldable smartphone will be official in January 2022. However, the Weibo post clearly states that this is a tentative release schedule. This means that the month of launch is not certain for now. Furthermore, the blogger also claims that the Honor foldable smartphone will come with BOE and Visionox display panels. In addition, this first foldable smartphone from Honor will use an inward folding solution.
In July of this year, the Honor foldable smartphone patent hit the web. The patent shows a foldable device with a frame, hinge, and electrical connection line of the folding screen. In recent months, the foldable smartphone market has suddenly become popular. As of now, multiple brands are getting set to unveil their foldable smartphones.
According to recent reports, the Huawei P50 Pocket foldable smartphone will be official on December 23. Oppo also announced that the Oppo Find N, a foldable flagship smartphone will be official on December 15.
According to previous reports, Honor recently applied for the names of two new models in Europe, namely: “Magic Fold” and “Magic Wing”. These two new models may correspond to the top and bottom folding models and the left and right folding models respectively. There is also news that the codename of the new machine that folds the Honor left and right is “Magic X”, and its shape may be similar to the Huawei Mate X2.
Honor Magic Fold render
It appears that Honor has multiple foldable smartphones in the works. However, we do not expect to see its first foldable smartphone until next year. However, a recent render shows the design of the Honor Magic Fold, a “left and right folding model”. The well-known network informant @RODENT950, who has repeatedly been accurate in his predictions about future Huawei / Honor products, has posted a render of the smartphone. Nobody really thought about the design of the smartphone. It was decided to carry it out in the same style as the Honor 50 and Honor 60. The necessary similarity was achieved due to the design of the main camera of the Honor Magic Fold, which received three image sensors.
All in all, it will be a Galaxy Fold 3 style smartphone with an additional screen on the outside. It is noteworthy that the front camera does not appear on the render. Perhaps the company chose to place it under the display or even expunge it. Whether the Honor Magic Fold will really look like this remains to be seen.
