The World's First Foldable Screen Phone Is Not Fully Baked

The World's First Foldable Screen Phone Is Not Fully Baked

The FlexPai features a fully flexible 7.8-inch fully flexible display that can be arranged as two split screens, plus a third "edge screen" or one larger one.

Now, however, it looks like a little-known startup called Royole may be the first to come to market with a foldable phone - and the screen actually does fold. The outlet adds that the device is equipped with a 16MP+20MP telephoto pairing, and can reach 80 percent capacity with 60 minutes of charging. However, a company called Royole has stepped around both of those major manufacturers and has launched a folding screen smartphone that is called the FlexPai. Its previous products include a "foldable 3D mobile theater", a curved vehicle dashboard, and various flexible sensors.

The device is powered by a 7nm Qualcomm chipset and only the Snapdragon 8150 fits that description. That's a bit more powerful than the Snapdragon 845 we've seen in most flagship devices in 2019. As this is a rough design, the final product may look pretty different.

The incident came a day after another Japanese carrier apologised for multiple delays after a hungover pilot called in sick. From Haneda, it takes about 12 hours and 30 minutes to fly to London, but 11 hours and 45 minutes for the return flight.

While a majority of the companies are still working their way around a foldable display, a Chinese company by the name Rouyu Technology is ready to launch a foldable phone tomorrow. The display around the foldable phone is still yet to be known. It can be used folded or unfolded, which the company said delivers the portability of a smartphone combined with the screen size of a high-definition tablet. Heck, even changing the design completely would make for a more convenient foldable.

"It is a historical moment that we have been waiting for years (to see)", said Bill Liu Zihong, 35, co-founder, chairman and chief executive of the company. Heck, Samsung's mobile chief has ...

One of the coolest things about the hands-on video is that the user is shown playing a game with the screen unfolded; when the screen is closed the game moves to one side of the device's screen. If those numbers are accurate, that equates to folding and unfolding the device more than 100 times a day for five years before the hinge starts to experience problems. Twitter tipster OnLeaks states that the device will be available for consumers to purchase starting November 1.
