When we talk about foldable displays, Moto and Samsung are the companies that usually come to one’s mind. But actually, Royole was the first-ever company to launch a smartphone with a foldable display, the “FlexPai”. The company has now announced the successor to its first foldable smartphone, named as “Royole Flexpai 2”.
Royole held an event where Bill Liu, the founder and CEO of the company revealed some of the features the upcoming smartphone will come with. The phone will have an improved 7.8-inch display, that the company calls the “3rd Generation Cicada Wing” Fully Flexible Display (FFD). The flexible plastic display has an aspect ratio of 4:3, and 1440p screen resolution. The display is around 50% more bright than its previous generation, and also has a higher contrast, a wider color gamut, and a faster response time. The hinge on the display has also been improved. The new 3Sâ¢ Hinge (Super Seamless & Stepless Hinge) on the display is now “wearproof” and “mechanically robust”. The company also claims that the display provides the smoothest bending experience, and can surpass over 200,000 bends.
The Royole Flexpai 2 will be powered by the Snapdragon 865 mobile platform with Kryoâ¢ 585 cores and Adreno 650 GPU. LPDDR5 RAM and UFS3.0 storage will ensure the phone runs smoothly under any situation. Talking about speed, it will also support nine 5G capable bands that cover almost all major 5G networks around the world.
During the event, Royole announced a partnership with ZTE Corporation. Both the companies will work together to popularize 5G and flexible displays not only in smartphones but in other smart devices too. On this partnership, Bill Liu commented:
We are very excited to partner with ZTE, a global leader in telecommunications and information technology. Royole and ZTE will collaborate for innovative applications of fully flexible display technology and we look forward to supporting ZTE to create innovative foldable smartphones that fully utilize the advantages of Royoleâs leading flexible solutions.
The Royole FlexPai 2 will be launched around Q2 this year. Other details about the phone including its pricing are not known yet. The current FlexPai smartphone costs around $1290.
