For a start, this model does not have two screens We return to the example of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold, like other models. In the case of Huawei’s folding phone, it bets on a flexible OLED panel that can reach 7.8 inches when unfolded or 6.5 inches when folded. Moreover, the hinge is much stronger.
