Folding smartphones


Royole wants to change the image of the smartphone by creating FlexPai, an ultrathin
portable device. But what is special about it is that this is the first flexible foldable device, a
combination of mobile phone and tablet (unfolded, it mesures 7.8 inches). The display will be no
more in danger of breaking, producers says. It weights 320 grams and it has a full color flexible display with 4:3 aspect ratio and 1920 x 1440 resolution (unfolded). When it’s folded, the smartphone
has the following resolutions and ratios:
 primary: 10 X 1440 resolution; 16:9 ratio;
 secondary: 720 X 1440 resolution; 18:9 ratio;
 edge: 390 x 1440 resolution; 21:6 ratio.

When you fold the smartphone, the apps on the screen go on the right half. On the left side, you
will receive notifications, including incoming calls. You have the option of using both sides of
the display, or disabling one of them. The battery of the device has a 3,970 mAh, and. It has 45
% faster CPU and 20 % faster GPU, while it’s powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 mobile
platform. Regarding the memory and storage, except the RAM memory (8 GB), you have
two options: 6 GB or 8 GB, plus 128 GB or 256 GB on a micro SD. Of course, the biggest the
memory, the higher the price.

FlexPay was recently presented to CES Las Vegas, where the audience was expecting something
like this from the bigger companies, like Samsung or Huawei. But Royole moved faster.
The FlexPai from Royole is available on order and it costs 1300 – 1400 dollars. You may pre-
order it, but still you have to be patient before receiving it, because the delivery could take about
60 days.

The device includes two cameras: one of them of 20 megapixels and the
other one – 16 megapixels.
Have to wonder: which one would you use for camming?
