Start Royole introduced the first folding smartphone on the market this past weekend. Named FlexPai, the handset was announced days before the release of Samsung's retractable smartphone, scheduled for Wednesday 7.
The phone will be sold in China for about $ 1,300. The FlexPai is already available on pre-order on the Royole website and, according to the company, the device will hit stores in the country in December.
With a 7.8 inch screen, the FlexPai is similar in size to a tablet, but takes the size of a mobile phone when folded. The company says the mobile phone can be folded 200 thousand times without swimming. The device features a Snapdragon 8150 processor, a 1920 x 1440 pixel resolution and a 3.800mAh (milliAmpers) battery.
According to the tests done on the site The top, the cell lacks both design and performance – the report describes that the software looks extremely slow, with applications that open at random all the time, and the screen orientation is shifted accidentally while Royole introduced the product. However, the The top says the device really fulfills the promise of being a versatile mobile phone.
