Honor Flip Phone Appearance Revealed by CNIPA Patents

Multiple patents have surfaced on the China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA), displaying the design of Honor flip phone.

It is understood that Honor is working on a new flip smartphone, which the company has already accepted on multiple platforms. Recently some unofficial renders appeared online claiming the first look of Honor Magic V Flip smartphone. Subsequently, multiple listings have surfaced on the China National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA) first spotted by 91mobiles, displaying a completely different design (high-res images can be accessed here). Interestingly, these patents were submitted on 2022.05.27 and finally got approved today (2024.05.24), which took almost two years for final approval.

According to the provided images in these patents, it looks very different from what we have seen in the unofficial fan-made render. When folded, there is a pill-shaped dual-camera setup, which is a rear camera. Both of these patents propose the appearance in the folded and unfolded states respectively, but the design is basically the same, with a hard straight-cut edge on the outer corners, a dual camera on the outside, and a centered hole-punch camera on the inside. The volume rockers are placed at the right side. Hence, it is proved that these patents belong to the same device.

Moreover, the back side is covered with a full-screen design as claimed by a reliable tipster Digital Chat Station. According to the tipster, the whole outer panel is a screen with a tiny bezel at the bottom. The tipster also acknowledged that the Honor Magic V Flip smartphone will boast the industry’s largest display on any flip-screen smartphone.

Apart from that, the render posted by another tipster demonstrated a circular camera island on the top-left corner of the back panel. However, that was a fan-made render, so it is unlikely to be true. In the current scenario, there is nothing official yet. There might be chances that these patents demonstrate a different phone or it could be the rumored Magic V Flip smartphone. We have to wait for further information.
