Royole, a little known mobile company, is the first to release foldable phone and tablet beating Samsung and Huawei.

Wraps were ripped from the 7.8 inch foldable FlexPai phone-tablet in Las Vegas during the 2019 International Consumer Electronic Show (CES).

Royole Company is a leader in flexible sensors, flexible displays and smart devices, however, its reputation is limited to the flexible screen revolution and it hopes to gain the first mover advantage with its foldable phone technology.

The company has said that it has run the FlexPai through durability test by folding it over 200,000 times.

The devices were first launched in October 2018 as the world’s first commercial foldable smartphone with a flexible display.

The device has flexible area in the middle that allows it to be folded with the rear side facing inwards, converting it into a dual screen phone.

It can be used in either folded or unfolded form due to its versatility. The screen on the device is scratch resistant and it cannot crack the way smartphone screens crack.

The folded edge displays notifications which Royole has put to use for managing calls, messages and other alerts.

When folded, the device has a primary and secondary screen that can be used together or independently. It offers a multi-tasking and split screen mode and the user can drag and drop between the apps.
