Royole Corporation, an innovator and manufacturer of next-generation human-machine interface technologies, is disrupting consumers’ traditional concept of a smartphone.
The company has unveiled the world’s first commercial foldable smartphone, a combination of mobile phone and tablet with a flexible screen at CES 2019.
The smartphone is known as the Royole FlexPai.
The unit can be used either folded or unfolded, giving it the portability of a smartphone plus the screen size of a high-definition tablet.
The device can be bent freely from 0 to 180 degrees and supports more than 200,000 bends.
Moreover, FlexPai ‘s screen cannot be cracked or easily scratched, ending the era of broken smartphone screens.
When unfolded, FlexPai supports split-screen mode and multi-tasking; supports drag-and-drop across applications, enabling it to share features just as a computer does; automatically adjusts screen sizes, and provides enjoyable video-watching and gaming experiences.
FlexPai uses Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8-series flagship SoC, integrating their 7nm process SoC, the most powerful AI and upgradable to support 5G.
Its camera set-up is made up of a 20-megapixel telephoto lens, and a 16-megapixel wide-angle lens, that can be used for both normal photo shooting or taking a selfie, thanks to the dual view camera mode.
Fast-charging is powered by the company’s own Ro-Charge technology, which delivers a speed increase of 40%.
“The Royole FlexPai foldable smartphone provides mobile phone users with a revolutionary, different experience compared to traditional phones,” said Dr. Bill Liu, Royole founder and CEO.
“It perfectly solves the contradiction between the high-definition large-screen experience and portability, which introduces a whole new dimension to the human-machine interface. The phone’s inherent design will forever change the consumer electronics industry, as well as the way people interact with and perceive their world.”
