Honor has teased the launch of its second foldable phone flagship.
The Chinese phone maker plans to unveil the Honor Magic Vs, or what appears to be a single-screen foldable phone, on Nov. 24 in mainland China, the company shared in a statement to the media on Thursday.
This device is a follow-up to Honor's inaugural Magic V foldable phone, which hit the market early this year. If Honor goes through with a single-screen phone, it would mark a departure from the design of its predecessor, which featured dual screens in a design that is similar to Samsung's Galaxy Fold 4 phone.
Honor and fellow Chinese rivals Xiaomi and Huawei have each launched single-screen foldable phones with varying designs. Huawei's Mate XS 2 features a wraparound design, while Xiaomi's Mi Mix Fold 2 takes a book-style form. With a single-screen design, foldable phones would presumably become slimmer and easier to carry around, a feature that could help nudge them toward the mainstream.
