Royole Unveils Flexpai 2 With Improved Foldable Display
Global smartphone maker Royole that has unboxed its first-generation foldable smartphone last year has now brought its successor called the FlexPai 2. The new handset that was launched through an online-only event features the third-generation Cicada Wing flexible display that is touted to be significantly improved over what was available on the last model. The Shenzhen-based company claims that the new display panel has a bend radius of 1mm, down from 3mm radius on its predecessor. However, it can still last for over 200,000 bends. The Royole FlexPai 2 also has an upgraded performance through the powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 SoC. In addition to the new foldable smartphone, Royole has partnered with ZTE to expand its flexible display technology.

Royole FlexPai 2: Specifications
The device is tipped to feature a JNCD (Just Noticeable Color Difference) below 0.6, along with a 1.2 times faster response time that is 0.4ms. The display is also claimed to have 1.5-times better brightness decay. Unlike other foldable displays, Royole said that its offering provides lesser crease impact, thanks to its mirror-like smooth structure that is made of over 100 micro-nano materials.
Royole noted that it had used its proprietary OLED technology that eliminates the layer peeling effect that can be noticed on other foldable display panels. The company also did some internal tests to show off its reliability and scratch-resistant design.
The display panel comes in 7.8-inch size on the FlexPai along with a 4:3 aspect ratio when unfolded. Moreover, it also has 1.3x better colour gamut and 500x better contrast over a traditional high-end LCD panel. Other than the display, the Royole FlexPai 2 is powered by the Snapdragon 865 SoC, coupled with LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.0 storage. It also has a quad rear camera setup along with a dual LED flash and “true” stereo speakers. Additionally, the phone comes with a hingeless foldable design.
The detailed specifications are yet to be announced and we cannot wait for it.
