Since the beginning of the year, talks about flexible, foldable and bendable smartphones have been in the news but unfortunately the first ever foldable smartphone to be announced is not coming from big brands like Samsung or LG but a small company called Royole FlexiPai.
The company has launched a foldable phone called the FlexPai. It features a 7.8-inch screen and measuring 7.6mm thin, equipped with a 16MP+20MP dual camera, and can reach 80% capacity with 60 minutes of charging.
The FlexPai will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8150 processor, 6GB or 8GB RAM, and will have the option of 128GB, 256GB, or 512GB of internal storage with microSD expansion. The device will make use of a 7.8-inch AMOLED display with a resolution of 1920 x 1440.
It will be running Water OS 1.0 based on Android 9.0 Pie out of the box.
The device’s setup is complete by a USB Type-C port – it lacks a 3.5mm headphone jack – and a 3,800mAh battery that can be charged with the included Ro-Charge fast charger. This allows the cell to go from 0% to 80% in just 30 minutes.
