Design and Display
The world first foldable Smartphone, Royole FlexiPai arrives with a large 7.8-inch HD+ 1920 x 1440 resolution and 4:3 aspect ratio with a thickness of 7.6mm. You will have a dual-screen smartphone that has three screens when folded.

We aren’t sure, if it will be comfortable when holding, neither will it be pocket friendly. It ditches the 3.5mm headphone jack for a USB Type-C port. It also gives that amazing feeling of holding a high-definition tablet.
For the camera aspect, the foldable phone comes with dual cameras, which can be used as a front facing selfie snapper or back photo shots. That means, the same cameras for selfie, can also substitute as a rear camera.
