World's first folding smartphone launches at CES


World's first folding smartphone launches at CES

Chinese company Royole has presented the world's first foldable smartphone, the FlexiPai, at CES in Las Vegas.

The FlexPai is a tablet that has small hinges allowing it to be folded up to the size of a smartphone. Once its AMOLED display is folded back out, the device effectively has two screens that can operate completely independently.

Royole CEO Bill Liu says the display can be folded up to 200,000 times without wear. The device's flexibility also protects it from breaking when dropped, the company says.

The FlexPai uses the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 processor and has a 3,800 mAh battery. The smartphone's camera has a 20 megapixel telephoto lens and a 16 megapixel wide-angle lens, which can also be used for taking selfies.

The phone presented at CES is still only a prototype for software developers interested in creating applications for the device, and it's not yet clear when the device will go on sale. Developers can buy it for €1,300 (RM6,129).

The company did not name a retail price.

There are rumours that other manufacturers like Huawei are looking into foldable devices as well.
