FREMONT, Calif., Sept. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Royole Corporation, a leading innovator and pioneer of next-generation, human-machine interface technologies and products such as fully flexible displays, fully flexible sensors, foldable smartphones and other smart devices, announces the global launch of the Royole FlexPai 2 smartphone. The successor to the world's first smartphone with a fully flexible display, Royole FlexPai, FlexPai 2 has today been announced at the 2020 Royole Strategy and New Product Launch event and introduces upgrades in performance, design and user experience.
Utilizing Royole's most advanced, third-generation Cicada Wing® fully flexible display, FlexPai 2 brings new possibilities for the human-machine interface and delivers the brightest, most color-rich screen of any foldable smartphone and with a response speed of just 0.4ms. Royole's fully flexible display is extremely thin and light, like wings of the cicada, and is as smooth as a mirror. The display is super flexible and robust, having been folded over 1.8 million times during Certified Display Folding Reliability Tests by the National Institute of Metrology, China. Another essential advancement is the use of Royole's proprietary, seamless and stepless 0-180o hinge constructed from aircraft-grade materials that include durable aluminum titanium alloy and liquid metal. This incredible piece of engineering allows for smooth positioning of the FlexPai 2 at any angle and for a truly gapless fold, reducing the thickness by 40% compared to the previous generation FlexPai. The structure of the hinge is stable and shockproof, providing great protection for the screen. It has more than 200 precision components with 0.01 mm processing accuracy. The hinge technology holds around 200 patents and solved many issues seen in other foldable smartphones.
"Our vision at Royole Corporation is to continue to build a Flexible Planet, an ecosystem of products that have integrated flexible electronics and unlock new possibilities in how humans interact with the world. By introducing the FlexPai 2, we have combined a timeless and stylish design with the best of our technology to bring a smartphone that elevates the consumer's day-to-day utility of a phone or tablet," says Bill Liu, founder, chairman and CEO of Royole Corporation "From the release of the world's first foldable smartphone with the original FlexPai in 2018, we have learned and improved upon our previous successes to create a product that prioritizes user experience, comfort and service. Our flexible electronics create new possibilities for unlimited interaction, and the FlexPai 2 showcases this."
As a pioneer of flexible electronics, Royole's mission is to revolutionize the way people experience and interact with the world, bringing new possibilities with unlimited interaction.

A smartphone for convenience and 7.8" tablet for entertainment or business, all in one stunning anodized aluminum device and for the price of a regular smartphone.
A powerful quad camera array ensures the Royole FlexPai 2 competes with the leading flagship smartphones in the market, and thanks to its form, FlexPai 2 offers unique shooting modes depending on the subject and needs of the user. USB-C fast charging, 4500mHa battery, updated Water OS software, 5G dual-mode connectivity and the latest Snapdragon 865 processor complete the flagship specification and ensure incredible performance whether in tablet, table or smartphone use.
