Royole FlexPai 2 hits AnTuTu and the TENAA with a Snapdragon 865, 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage ahead of September 21 announcement
The successor to the original foldable smartphone is almost here. Royole unveiled the FlexPai to a mixed response at CES 2019, although it later won a Red Dot Design Award, as did Royole's Scrolling Keybaord. Fast forward almost two years, and Royole is ready to unveil a FlexPai 2.
The company has already confirmed the timing of its 'Strategy and New Product Launch' event, which commences at 19:30 PDT (UTC-07:00) on September 21. Royole will stream the event on its website and YouTube channel. The device has been seen at the TENAA and on AnTuTu ahead of Monday's event though, confirming several specifications about the device.
According to the TENAA, the FlexPai 2 measures 186.2 x 133.8 x 6.5 mm when unfolded and houses a 7.8-inch AMOLED screen with a 4:3 aspect ratio. The screen also has a resolution of 1,920 x 1,440 pixels, next to which lies four cameras. According to the listing, these are 64 MP, 32 MP, 16 MP, and 8 MP sensors, although the TENAA does detail what sensors Royole has used.
Both the TENAA and AnTuTu confirm that the Snapdragon 865 will power the FlexPai 2, which Royole has complemented with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage. There will also be a 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of storage option, according to the TENAA. Both models will feature a 4,450 mAh battery that brings the total weight of the FlexPai 2 to 340 g.
As for the AnTuTu score, it places the FlexPai 2 about 10% shy of the average performance of the Snapdragon 865, of the devices that we have tested to date. However, the score could have been achieved running pre-release software, so we would not read too much into this until retail units have been benchmarked.
The price of the FlexPai 2 is unknown at this stage, but the TENAA confirms that it will launch in Dark Night Black, Magic Gold and Star Grey. Royole will release the FlexPai running Android 10, too.
