Chinese sources report that Honor is working on a foldable smartphone, as evidenced by several patents. A well-known insider under the nickname Digital Chat Station, said Honor is preparing a smartphone with an 8-inch main display, and an additional screen will have a 6.5-inch diagonal.
The source also said the foldable panel will be supplied by BOE, the largest display manufacturer in China. The company, which has worked with Huawei in the past, is currently working on new ultra-thin flexible glass technology to protect the fragile screen.
Recall that Huawei has already released the foldable smartphones Huawei Mate X and Mate Xs, which are equipped with a single 8-inch screen. When folded, users get two screens on either side of the smartphone. Unlike Huawei devices, the foldable Honor smartphone will have full support for Google apps and services.
Earlier, Digital Chat Station was the first to accurately report the specifications and release dates of the Redmi K30, K40, Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 11.
