It’s finally here folks, the foldable phone is no longer a sci-fi thing or a futuristic projection. FlexPai is the world’s first foldable phone. Wait, it is not a phone, it is a tablet, but the point is, it is foldable.
The FlexPai is a 7.8-inches screen with 4:3 aspect ration. When folded, the device transforms into a more ‘manageable’ 4-inched device. This device is also the first device ever to be powered by the next gen. 7nm Snapdragon 8150!
This is the “world’s first foldable screen phone” released by Rouyu Technology, which will use the Snapdragon 8150 processor, but its design is very rough, just to seize the “first”, this is a futures product. pic.twitter.com/M0v9o2z0Bw

The device is running on Water OS, which switched to using just half of the screen when folded. The screen is AMOLED and folds down right in the middle. The user selects which half of the screen to use when the device is folded; though the side with the dual camera has slightly ‘less screen real-estate to work with.’
The FlexPai is 7.6mm thick, and when folded it measures 15.7mm thick. The area the ‘hinge’ does not fold flat, thus making it somewhat thicker. The manufacturer claims the hinge can be opened and closed about 200,000 times.
It also has a proprietary Ro-Charge for fast charging. The manufacturer claims to goes from 0% to 80% charge within just one hour. You can own the base model starting at $1,300.
