Chinese startup Royole is beating Samsung and everybody to the punch to produce a foldable smartphone. Further, it could cost a fortune as rumours have it that it may be priced at almost $1,500 which roughly translates to over Rs 1 lakh. The company's schedule for SDC 2018 will include a dedicated session where it will reveal its new Android 9.0 Pie beta program and tell us how its new foldable displays will make new user experiences possible. The phone has been in rumours and reports for a long time but it may be nearing its launch date.
Foldable phones hold the promise of allowing consumers to do more complex work that would normally be done on a tablet or laptop, but with a device that becomes far more compact. The phone is rumoured to sport a 7.3-inches primary display and a 4.6-inches secondary display.
The FlexPai uses Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 series SoC, which brings impressive and industry-leading AI to the device. It said it will start filling orders from late December, although little is known about the firm's projected sales. Samsung's annual Developer Conference is scheduled to take place later this week, and Samsung has confirmed it will be previewing the phone at the show. We're going for Samsung Galaxy Flex.

Which of the two games Leonard sits out remains to be determined as the team and superstar will discuss at Saturday's practice. Though they played better basketball as the game went on, they were never able to overcome that slow start.
High price tags are expected to prevent foldable phones from immediately becoming big hits, and some analysts even doubt there is huge appetite for such a product. Earlier this month, a company called "Royole" announced the FlexPai smartphone for $1,300, which it called "the world's first commercial foldable smartphone with a flexible display".
The foldable phone when unfolded turns into a 7.8-inch tablet.
