FlexPai: The World’s First Foldable Phone Is Open For Sale Now

Finally, you can now get yourself a foldable phone as FlexPai is available for preorders now. Here's some specifications on the phone.

As in the demoed video posted a couple of days ago, the world’s first foldable phone is real and it is here; yet, it’s not a handset by top smartphone makers like Huawei or Samsung.

The phone is available for preorders from today and shipping will starts in December.

Galaxy F vs. Royole FlexiPai

Rouyu Technology, which is Chinese word for Royal, is now selling FlexPai - the foldable smartphone we saw a couple of days ago. On Wednesday, Rouyu launched the phone at its press conference, as reported by ITHome. As on the company’s US website, FlexPai comes with Rouyu’s second generation fully flexible screen.

When it’s unfolded, FlexPai is a 7.8-inch tablet, about the same size as an iPad mini. It features the resolution of 1920 x 1440 with 4:3 screen-to-body ratio.

At the folded stage, FlexPai appears to be a dual-display phone with three screens in total. The main screen has 810 x 1440 resolution with an aspect ratio of 16:9. The second one features 720 x 1440 resolution with 18:9 screen aspect ratio. The third is the edge screen which is at 390 x 1440 resolution and the screen-to-body ratio of 21:6.

Though you can fold the phone easily as shown in the photo, it seems not to fit your pocket.

FlexPai comes with dual-lens camera, a telephoto lens at 20MP and a wide-angle lens at 16MP. Though not officially posted on the website, FlexPai is likely to run on the Snapdragon 8150 chip, making it the first phone to use Qualcomm’s new processor.

The company also announced that phone also offers fast-charging technology, a USB-C port, yet no headphone jack. The phone comes in RAM of 6GB or 8GB, and storage of 128GB, 256GB or 512GB. Only 256GB and 128GB models are available in the US, pricing $1,469 (Rs 107,000) and $1,318 (Rs 96,000) relatively.

Another smartphone maker to launch foldable phone is Samsung with its new Galaxy F, which may cost almost $2,000. Though released next year, the Galaxy F should be unveiled later this month at Samsung’s SDC18 developer conference.
