FlexPai – This shocking smartphone invention has been kept away from the eyes of everyone until now, unless you’re a fan of personal cinema headsets. The founder and CEO Bill Liu wanted it that way, so it’ll be a wow to the world. We heard Royole has quietly been working to pioneer and perfect its own flexible screens since 2012, and its new FlexPai smartphone represents something you haven’t seen before.
We’re sure going to look into it’s features and how you can possibly get along using it. But before we go any further, though, we need to get a few things straight. Yes, this is a real product that you can buy right now in the market, it’s there. Yes, this basically unknown company beat Samsung to market with a foldable smartphone. We couldn’t believe it either. Like who are they. Lol! And yes, it actually works like it should, trust me.
For those who haven’t been keeping track, the FlexPai packs a Snapdragon 855 chipset, since it’s already on sale, this probably counts as the world’s first commercially available 855 phone, either 6 or 8GB of RAM, 128GB or 256GB of storage and 16MP+20MP dual camera. Yes, it even runs Android 9.0 Pie, am right
On paper, that’s enough to put the FlexPai squarely in flagship territory. The most important feature is the 7.8-inch AMOLED display that folds in half to form a usable — if kind of unwieldy smartphone. All told, it doesn’t get much more bleeding edge than this like seriously.
This isn’t the first time we’re hearing of the FlexPai, it actually went on a world tour of sorts in late 2018. The only difference now is, the FlexPai wasn’t ready for production as at then, and it definitely showed up At CES, were other gadget were displayed too this year with a ‘yes, you can use’, though, the company is showing off most of its production models that actually work perfectly well.
Think of it, I think there’s a very specific kind of joy, like happiness that goes in display when you unfold a phone into a tiny tablet you can handle handily, and during our hands-on time with the phone, I found myself opening and closing often just because I could. Like realistically, I did the same with the decidedly non-flexible Axon M.
We’re yet to get a final Royole FlexPai price, but we already know that it’s going to be an expensive piece of kit – no surprise considering the cutting edge, foldable technology that it’s coming with.
