World’s First Flexible Smartphone – FlexPai Now A Reality


We have been hearing a lot about the introduction of flexible smartphones for a while. And, before the major tech companies (Samsung has been featuring in the rumour mill since forever), California-based display maker Rouyu Technologies has finally made the new piece of tech, dubbed the FlexPai, official.

According to a tweet by Ice Universe, the smartphone which was showcased at an event held in Beijing, China can be converted into a 7.8-inch tablet and 4-inch when bent. The display is AMOLED in nature and comes with an aspect ratio rated at 4:3.

Taking a look at the technical specs, the FlexPai is powered by the unannounced Qualcomm Snapdragon 8150 processor based on 7nm FinFET process tech with a new AI platform and 5G support. It comes in three RAM/ROM variants: 6GB RAM/128GB ROM, 8GB RAM/256GB ROM and 8GB RAM/512GB ROM.

On the camera front, there is a dual-camera setup, rated at 16-megapixel and 20-megapixel which also doubles as a selfie camera.

While the battery capacity is left unannounced, the FlexPai is expected to get charged from 0 to 80 per cent in about an hour, with the help of the Ro-Charge fast charging tech.

Additionally, the FlexPai runs the company’s WaterOS based on Android Pie.
