Honor confirms plans for its first flip-style folding phone

    Table of Contents

    Honor has never launched a flip phone, despite being on its third book-style foldable. But that is about to change.

    For the first time, the CEO of the company has stated that one would be launched at some point. It’s unclear how long we’ll have to wait, but Honor’s key difficulties, according to George Zhao, are:

    “We have plans for the flip, but they come at a very high internal cost.” We aim to be the finest as well.”

    Both of these aspects require time, particularly for a firm that only started producing foldables in 2022.

    While Honor had a specific presentation at the IFA tech show in Berlin, the book-style Magic V2 and V Purse idea (with an external folding screen) were introduced instead.

    Zhao feels that whenever Honor releases a flip phone, the set will be complete:

    “When Honor launches the Flip, they need to have the best flip phone in the industry, so we’ll give them more value.” Honor will therefore be the top in all three categories of foldable phones [inward folding, outward folding, and flip].”

    While the term ‘best’ is subjective, Honor’s first priority remains value for money. The business will try to undercut key competitors such as the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Motorola Razr 40 Ultra (both starting at $999/£1,049) while maintaining quality.

    Any probable release date is likewise unknown, as an Honor official told Reframed that it will debut at MWC in February 2024. However, if the Magic V2 is any indication, there might be a lengthy wait between the first announcement and arrival in Europe.

    The Magic V2 was unveiled in China in July, but Honor has confirmed to Android Authority that it would not be available until Q1 of 2024.

    As a result, you might not be able to get your hands on an Honor flip phone anytime soon. However, it appears that one will be made official before long.
