Two screens that promise to be sublime
The internal screen is an Oled LTPO panel in 9.78: 9 format, which means that its refresh rate can drop significantly (below 60 Hz) in order to consume as little as possible. A screen that can display 1.07 billion colors in total.
As for the external screen, it is also an Oled panel which goes up to 120 Hz, in 20:9 format, more classic of course. It has a maximum brightness of 2500 cd/m², while the internal screen is content with 1600 cd/m², which looks excellent. As usual with Honor, there are functions to adapt the brightness of the screen according to ambient light, or others to prevent eye fatigue and the impact on the circadian cycle.
A neat design
As usual, the manufacturer highlights its design choices. Here, it is the finesse and the weight that are promoted. 213 grams in total and a thickness of 9.9 mm (folded).
