Royole Releases the World’s First Commercial Foldable Smartphone

Royole Releases the World’s First Commercial Foldable Smartphone

The company is expected to showcase the Galaxy foldable handset codenamed- "Winner" at the upcoming Samsung Developer Conference on November 7-8 in San Francisco.

When the FlexPai is folded, both screens on the front and back can work together or independently, depending on what you're doing. Unfolded, the display size is 7.8-inches, with a 4:3 aspect ratio.

Samsung patented foldable screen technology in 2015 that would allow for a flexible OLED display with a folding mechanism under the display. He tweeted: "I can't speak for Samsung. but I do know that LG plans to unveil a foldable phone at its 2019 CES keynote". Though Royole has a much smaller development team, the device has an impressive array of features to help it compete with mobile giants across the globe. Phones with the display on the outside could have something like a traditional smartphone form factor when closed, which could open up into a tablet-like form factor.

The Houstonian student newspaper reported that the newlyweds were seniors at Sam Houston State University . A newly-married husband and wife died in a helicopter crash just 90 minutes after tying the knot.

There are also reports that suggest the phone could target the gaming enthusiast and may not be for the general masses.

Years of speculation and rumors about a Samsung-made phone with a foldable display might finally be reaching some sort of resolution. The dual-camera setup is on par with other smartphone leaders with its 20-megapixel telephoto and 16-megapixel wide-angle lenses, as well as stereo speakers and a fingerprint ID - features that define smartphones nowadays.

Samsung was the first tier-1 brand to bring the world's first curved screen-based phone- Galaxy Round. Naturally, there has been no hint of a price tag, but you can guarantee that buying the foldable phone will not be something that your wallet will thank you for.
