What are the best smartphones on the Chinese market? Which phones can do it bigger, better, faster – and cheaper? Those are only a few of the questions we’d like to get behind in this category.

The Royole Flexpai was the first smartphone with a folding display at the end of 2018. It served as a prototype, was therefore very expensive and not intended for mass production.

Now the manufacturer has introduced its successor: the Royole FlexPai 2.
