Yes, now you can ‘actually’ fold your smart device!
Royole, a Chinese device maker has been an underdog when we speak of smartphone brands cornering most of the tech market. At CES 2019, in Las Vegas, Royole was found showing off its world’s first foldable phone which goes by the name of FlexPai.
After facing an existential threat from Samsung’s rival foldable phone, this five-year-old company hurriedly threw the FlexPai together to let the world gaze in awe at its foldable spectral.
Royole FlexPai which is more like an Android tablet in its extended mode measures 7.8 inches diagonally and becomes two Android smartphones when flexed closed. It has two SIM slots and provides an auto-detection system that shows content on half of the folded screen that you are facing. The content spills out automatically when the foldable phone is extended back to its original.
When the AMOLED display is folded, there’s still a gap between two halves of the screen. Although it's a bulky phone, it can be stored in a purse much easier than a tablet.
Royole has done an impressive job in beating giants like Samsung and Huawei to roll out the world’s first foldable phone and steal the thunder as well as title away from them.
Besides unveiling the Royole FlexPai foldable phone at the CES event, the company has also disclosed a smart speaker with a flexible display, as well as a smart selfie-stick with multi-touch sensors around the handle.
If you live in the U.S., you can buy a developer version of the device for $1300. Let’s us know your review about the same in case you grab one.
