The first smartphone with a folding screen was not Samsung's Galaxy Fold or Huawei's Mate X.

, we'll see many more soon.

Royole RoKit is a set that

includes everything you need to do so

: it includes a 3rd generation AMOLED flexible screen, a touch sensor module, motherboard, processor, and all

the cables necessary

to connect the different components.

In theory, anyone could make their own flexible phone with all these elements, which are sold at a price of approximately $ 959 (about 815 euros) and come in a practical metal case with antistatic protection.

It would only be necessary to create or print a housing to house them and feed them with a battery or power supply of 5V and 2 amps (the equivalent of the

power provided by a USB port


Royole markets it with developers looking for new uses for flexible displays.

After all, that is your main market.

Although it launched the FlexiPai and the FlexiPai 2, the company is not really a typical mobile phone manufacturer, but a provider for third-party manufacturers, such as Huawei or Xiaomi.
