A five-year-old mobile manufacturing company, Royole has launched the very first smartphone with a foldable screen called FlexPai. However, the experts say that it was the company’s hurried gesture to stay ahead of Samsung while introducing this new technology. And, this is one reason that the acceptance of the final product in the market is still doubtful.
FlexPai comes with a 7.8 inches screen (measured diagonally), two SIM slots and also has auto-detection feature. Moreover, it shows content on half of the screen that faces the user. This content expands to full screen when the device is opened. The screen resolution is 1920×1440 on the full display and it goes to half of the resolution when a call arrives.
But there are various challenges that come with this phone such as bad quality and visible problems in basic operations. According to technology enthusiasts, a foldable phone with satisfactory functionality is still a distant dream and companies are still working on it. But it is also true that the mobile manufacturer Royole will always be named as the winner in making foldable phones.
