While companies like Apple and Samsung are vying to lead the industry, tech innovator and manufacturer Royole has just debuted the world’s first commercial foldable smartphone.

Dubbed the “FlexPai,” the latest device claims to be both a smartphone and tablet in one and can be used when folded or unfolded, giving it the “portability of a smartphone plus the screen size of a high-definition tablet.” In terms of specs, the “FlexPai” comes equipped with a 7.8 inch full-color display, 4:3 aspect ratio, and 920 x 1440 resolution along with a 20 and 16 megapixel cameras.

Royole founder and CEO Dr. Bill Liu stated:

“The Royole FlexPai foldable smartphone provides mobile phone users with a revolutionary, different experience compared to traditional phones. It perfectly solves the contradiction between the high-definition large-screen experience and portability, which introduces a whole new dimension to the human-machine interface. The phone’s inherent design will forever change the consumer electronics industry, as well as the way people interact with and perceive their world.”

Royole’s “FlexPai” developer model is currently available for $1,318 USD. Head over to royole.com for more details.
