Royole Releases the World’s First Commercial Foldable Smartphone

Royole Releases the World’s First Commercial Foldable Smartphone

Samsung CEO DJ Koh in August this year had said that the company planned to launch the long-delayed foldable phone at the earliest as it didn't want to lose "the world's first" title.

These new names include the Samsung Infinity Flex, the Samsung Infinity O and Samsung Infinity U, these new trademarks were recently filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

If you were the cynical sort, you might think that Samsung has only posted the tease because of the rumor last week that its bitter local rival, LG, would show off its own foldable smartphone at CES 2019, which is just two months away. The phone is rumoured to sport a 7.3-inches primary display and a 4.6-inches secondary display. We are expecting it to either be powered by a Samsung Exynos processor of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. The phone will use a hinge mechanism that will allow smooth folding and unfolding of the device. We neither have a confirmed name of the phone but a report from GizmoChina reveals that it may be called the Galaxy F. The letter F could probably mean foldable.

The device comes in three different configurations 6GB+128GB, 8GB+256GB, and 8GB+512GB RAM/ROM with internal storage expandable up to 256GB with a MicroSD card. Oh, also, it'll cost something like $1,700 or $2,000.

The company, however, has already lost the race for the world's first commercial foldable phone. FlexPai by Royole Technologies has become the first phone to debut with the technology. For the moment at least, there are no details on which processor, how much RAM, how many cameras, or what size battery this foldable phone might have.
