Almost unknown to anyone, the Chinese company Royole presented the world's first foldable smartphone with a flexible display – FlexPai. It is also the world's first model with the SoC Snapdragon 8150 system. It is a real technological firecracker, though with a delayed ignition.
Even if the last days brought us the premieres of the products OnePlus, Apple, Huawei and Nubia, the biggest surprise turned out to be the presentation of the FlexPai smartphone. This model has two premiere solutions , which none of the companies has yet used, which is why it is the first device with the SoC Snapdragon 8150 system, as well as the first folding smartphone.
With a very compact smartphone after unfolding we will get equipment with a large size display, the more so with a 4: 3 aspect ratio.
The folded smartphone has a 7.8-inch display with a 4: 3 aspect ratio. If FlexPai is folded (folding direction is outside), we will get a very compact smartphone with a 4.0 display. "Here we are dealing with the AMOLED screen, which is exactly in the middle part. The smartphone has just 7.6 millimeters thick when unfolded, but when folded it reaches 15.2 mm. The hinge has been tested 200,000 times.
