Companies such as Samsung and Huawei were struggling to see who would arrive first in the race for a foldable smartphone, but a third company arrived earlier. This is the Chinese Rouyu Technology (Royole Corporation), which today introduced a functional version of FlexPai, a smartphone/tablet that can be folded in half without any problem.
The Chinese company Rouyu Technology is one of the leaders in the research and development of flexible color displays. It is the Chinese manufacturer, the first in the world to introduce a sophisticated smartphone – FlexPai.
In addition to being the first handset of its kind in the world, it is also the first to use the Snapdragon 8150, the successor to the Snapdragon 845 and Qualcomm’s latest offering for high-end smartphones. The FlexPai has an AMOLED screen of 7.8 inches with a resolution of 1920×1440 pixels and only 7.6 mm of thickness.
It has two 20 MP (telephoto) and 16 MP (wide-angle) cameras with f / 1.8 aperture and can capture self-portraits and photos of other objects normally. Rouyu ensures that the new smartphone’s rapid recharge system fills 80% of the 3,800 mAh battery in 1 hour connected to the wall outlet.
