Royole announces Flexpai 2, features a better foldable display

While it's Samsung and Motorola that we've been talking about of late, thanks to the Galaxy Z Flip and the Motorola Razr, let's not forget that it was Royole that launched the first foldable phone - the Royole FlexPai.

Royole organized the occasion to flaunt regarding its brand-new foldable display, as well as it genuinely is exciting.

Royole Flexpai 2 was showcased in an event in China by CEO Bill Liu, who also announced the company's partnership with another electronics brand, ZTE.

The Royole FlexPai 2 employs the 3rd generation Cicada Wing Flexible Display tech that lowers the bend radius and reduces the crease, two of the biggest flaws of a foldable panel. This gives the phone a much better fold - perhaps much closer to, if not better than, Huawei's Mate Xs which has a similar outward-facing flexible screen.

The panel apparently also provides enhanced viewing angles and will provide "the smoothest folding experience in the industry even after more than 200,000 bends".


Under the hood, it is powered by the flagship Snapdragon 865 processor, coupled with LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.0 storage (details not revealed). There is a quad rear camera setup at the back and dual stereo speakers too. The screen, demoed at the launch, is 7.8” in diagonal with a 4:3 ratio when open.

The FlexPai 2 is quite similar to its predecessor in terms of form factor but comes with an improved hinge and display.

At the moment, we don't know more about the phone as the phone hasn't been launched yet.

It's a Chinese company, Royole has a new vouwtelefoon will be presented. That said, only time will tell whether Royole has the production capability to handle other manufacturer requests, let alone its own phones.
