Rumor | The Honor Magic Fold is on the way with a Galaxy Z Fold-like design, albeit a very different camera hump
Honor is already linked to the prospect of stepping up to Xiaomi this year with its own first-gen foldable phablet. This device, said to be called the Magic Fold on its launch, is also rumored to be powered by the Snapdragon 888+ processor. Now, a famous leaker has released new images hinting at how this cutting-edge phablet might look.
These renders, posted by @RODENT950/Teme on Twitter, support the notion that the Magic Fold will have a profoundly Huawei Mate X2-like 8-inch main display. Accordingly, it, like this device and its new rival the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3, will have a book-like design with a secondary screen on its "cover".
It now seems this display may or may not have a dual punch-hole cut-out, whereas @RODENT950's new leak also suggests that Honor has chosen not to perturb the main screen with anything similar. (Alternatively, it just might join the Z Fold3 in premiering next-gen under-display cameras for its brand instead).
Then again, the Magic Fold may stand (very far) out in its slowly-growing market in terms of rear camera design (not to mention size and number). It appears to have borrowed the "angel-eye" (also known as the "double-barrel", or, as Honor itself says, "Cartier Ring") style from its 50 Pro sibling.
Accoridingly, the single lens found in the top circle seen in these renders could well be for a 108MP main camera, with a triangle of lower-res sensors for functions such as ultra-wide and macro in the bottom 'ring'. On the other hand, Honor has yet to drop any hint that this device exists in any form.
