Honor seems to be on a launching spree, as we have seen with the Chinese company revealing its Honor 60 last week, while its upcoming Honor X30 is scheduled to be launched on the 16th of December. And they don’t seem to be stopping anytime soon as the company is now aiming to step up its game by releasing its first foldable smartphone after parting its way with Huawei, whose supposed renders have already surfaced online.
From a design perspective, Honor’s upcoming foldable smartphone seems to share the same design as the Huawei Mate X2, which has a very similar folding mechanism to the Samsung Galaxy Fold 3, at least in function, as both the Mate X2 and the upcoming Magic Fold 5G seem to a feature a much larger display on the outside that what we have seen with Samsung’s offering.
It is rumored that the Magic Fold will provide an 8-inch display when fully opened, combined with a resolution of 2200 x 2480 pixels. The device is expected to be powered by Hisilicon’s Kirin 9000 SoC, an octa-core processor which features one Cortex A-77 core running at 3.13GHz, three Cortex A-77 cores running at 2.54GHz, and four Cortex A-55 cores running at 2.05GHz.
Apart from that, the device is said to pack 8GB of RAM plus 256GB of fast UFS 3.1 internal storage along with a 4,500mAh battery. The renders show a rear camera with a 108-megapixel primary camera sensor, while on the front side, it could have a 16-megapixel under-display camera for taking selfies and video calling.
Overall, it looks like Honor might be finally back into the game ever since it became an independent brand by splitting from Huawei. Meanwhile, launching a foldable smartphone could further help Honor regain its market share in its home country, China. At the same time, the brand has already captured a 15 percent market share, becoming the third-largest smartphone company in China, followed by Vivo and OPPO.
