Royole Debuts World’s First Commercial Foldable Smartphone

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.

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.”
