  • Royole Releases the World’s First Commercial Foldable Smartphone

The Royole Corporation is an American tech company that has just revealed the world's first folding phone called the FlexPai.

The reveal is also created to help developers ensure their apps are optimised for the folding screen, because as we all know devices are doomed to fail if they don't get the right app support.

SAMSUNG WILL GIVE DEVELOPERS an early look at its long-awaited folding Galaxy X smartphone this week.

Samsung's foldable smartphone is expected to come to life at the company's Samsung Developer Conference (SDC) to be held from November 7-8.

We previously heard a rumor about the name for the new Samsung Foldable Smartphone, now a recent trademark filing suggests then handset will launch as the Samsung Infinity Flex. And even if Samsung doesn't have even a prototype to show, it will probably drop hints about that upcoming phone through that foldable display UX discussion. The phone has been codenamed as Valley and victor also. From the totals cited, it appears that only 100,000 units will be made a month, which is much lower than the millions of Galaxy S devices the company manufactures a year.

Facebook removes 115 suspicious accounts ahead of U.S. mid-term elections
Russian Federation is accused of propaganda campaign in favour of Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential vote. Facebook had removed 82 pages linked to Iran late last month for the same reason.

The developer model of the FlexPai is available now for €1,388.00 on the Royole site.

Bending the phone and straightening it back out actually takes a bit of force: it's nowhere near as effortless as flipping open an old school flip phone. It's got all the usual smartphone features: a 20-megapixel camera, fingerprint scanner, USB-C charging and storage expansion via MicroSD. The phone, however, has been delayed due to various issues. Royole says the display can withstand 200,000 folds before it starts to degrade, which should more than cover the lifespan of the phone.

Samsung is emphasizing on the app experience as they're going to preview it for developers this week.

Granted, it doesn't exactly mention a new foldable phone but it's just one session among many. The company could first unveil the phone in its homeland followed by other countries.
