Samsung, Huawei or LG were expected to be the first players in the race to draw the first folding smartphone on the market.

And it is the Chinese Royole who cut them cutting the grass under the foot.

The Flexpai is proof of this:

this is the first collapsible smartphone on the market, already on sale on its website. Its flexible terminal, called FlexPai, with Snapdragon 8150 and an eight-core chip comes in the form of a tablet phone that folds in half along a kind of hinge.

Once the screen is 7.8 inches unfolded, the thickness of the smartphone is 7.6 millimeters, about the size of the iPhone XS.

The Flex Pai with the screen rolled up for storage then becomes more bulky with a thickness of about 1.5 cm.

With 6 or 8 GB of RAM depending on the configurations a relative fluidity can be expected and an internal memory 128, 256 and 512 GB with a micro SD port, the FlexPai wants to be on the material level at the height of this first.

Its selling price: 1140 euros for 128 GB of storage.

It is available since November 1st in China.
