Taken from Engadget … The most notable feature about Royole’s third-generation Cicada Wing FFD (Fully Flexible Display) on this device is perhaps its much improved bend radius, going from the previous version’s 3mm down to just 1mm, while still lasting over 200,000 bends. This gives the phone a much better fold — perhaps much closer to, if not better than, Huawei’s Mate Xs which has a similar outward-facing flexible screen.
The panel also benefits from a boost in brightness, contrast, color gamut and viewing angle, all of which are further enhanced by a new custom driver chip. For the display nerds out there, at a 30-degree viewing angle, this panel is apparently rated with a JNCD (Just Noticeable Color Difference) below 0.6, along with 1.5-times better brightness decay.
Much like its predecessor, the FlexPai 2 has a 7.8-inch screen with a 4:3 aspect ratio when fully open. Unsurprisingly, this latest flagship is powered by Qualcomm’s latest and greatest Snapdragon 865, which comes with 5G radio, faster LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.0 storage. There’s also a set of quad cameras along with stereo speakers, which is what you’d expect on a flagship phone these days. Royole stopped short at providing further information, but with a Q2 2020 launch date set for the consumer market, we’ll be hearing more soon.
