The leaker suggests in his post that the unnamed foldable phone is being made by Green Factory and would measure around 7 inches and 2 inches when folded. The new device will also feature a clamshell design equipped with an LTPO screen technology with the capability of supporting a dynamic refresh rate. The company will reportedly solve the limited battery capacity for the foldable phone by selecting the LTPO screen technology.
