The first foldable phone in the world isn’t just a concept, as I first thought when seeing it demoed on video in Asia. It’s an actual Android phone that you can buy right now, although it’s not made by a top vendor like Samsung or Huawei, the two Android phone makers that are usually associated with foldable smartphone reports.
Called Rouyu Technology in China, which translates to Royal in English, the company has started taking preorders for the foldable phone we saw the other day — the FlexPai, as they call it. According to ITHome, Royole held a press conference on Wednesday to unveil the new phone. Over on Royole’s US website, we learn that the FlexPai features Royole’s second-generation fully flexible display.
