Honor To Launch Its Own Folding Smartphone In January 2022

maker Honor, which was part of Huawei, is expected to be its next debut in the foldable smartphone sector. According to speculation from the Chinese industry, the brand has a possible launch window for a mobile phone in this format as early as January 2022 – and this moment has a great opportunity to be exploited.

The information is from leak specialist Changan Digital King, who also say the screen suppliers are BOE and Visionox. Such a smartphone would have an internal foldable format, which means that it covers the entire screen when closed and displays a smaller external panel. This may be the next folding device on the market after the recently announced Oppo Find N.

In July 2021, Honor patents with flexible displays and a hinge were released, but no release plan seemed as concrete as now. Earlier rumors suggested that the names Magic Fold and Magic Wing were registered in Europe and may be linked to the model, while an alleged rendering was published on Twitter a few days ago.

Honor is an independent company of Huawei since November 2020, when it was sold to alleviate the former owner’s crisis in the mobile device sector.

After severing ties with the company, it was again allowed to use Google’s ecosystem on its Android devices, including releases such as the X20 5G and Honor Magic 3Pro.

In China, it has even temporarily surpassed Xiaomi and Apple in mobile phone sales.
