Honor patents Magic Flip, Fold and Flex names as it looks to join the foldable race
Honor is proudly going forward as an independent company, and last week we saw the first flagship series since the company separated from Huawei. It is also moving towards foldable devices after patenting at least three names - Magic Flip, Magic Fold, Magic Flex.
The trade names does not necessarily mean Honor will launch three phones, nor they give a specific timeline of a potential foldable arrival. However, the company is certainly evaluating its options and it seems reasonable to expect from it to to adopt the new form factor sooner rather than later.
The patent list also included eight other names for a router, earbuds, likely a few tablet series (TOUCH, TAP, and PAD), share services (SHARE and DROP), and probably a stylus (PEN).
The trademarks are currently only requested in China, but we’re pretty confident many of these products will reach the global markets - after all the whole point of going independent was for Honor to retain positions in the overseas markets

I can understand the Flip and the Fold, but what Flex is all about? A foldable 360-degree screen?

For buying foldable it needs to have great software support with 3 android updates and 4-5 years of security updates.
