However, the OS on the Flexpai doesn’t seem to be stock android but it is definitely an android device. This device weighs twice the weight of iPhone XS and Galaxy note 9.

The concept of a folding device is great to imagine and even use. But then a must ask question arises in the heads.

How long it can be used without display getting completely out of use? The answer is it can be used for years because the folding mechanism has been tested over 2,00,000 times as per the claims of the brand.

What is OLED?

An organic light-emitting diode (OLED) is a light-emitting diode (LED) in which the emissive electroluminescent layer is a film of organic compound that emits light in response to an electric current.

This organic layer is situated between two electrodes; typically, at least one of these electrodes is transparent.

OLEDs are used to create digital displays in various electronic devices such as television screens, computer monitors, portable systems such as smartphones, handheld game consoles, and PDAs.

There are basically two families of OLED. These are based on small molecules and those employing polymers.

Adding mobile ions to an OLED has a slightly different mode of operation which creates a light-emitting electrochemical cell (LEC).

An OLED display can be driven with an active-matrix (AMOLED) or passive-matrix (PMOLED) control scheme.

In the PMO present, each row (and line) in the display control the filled sequentially one by one.

AMOLED control uses a thin-film semiconductor device for backplane to directly access and switches.


At present the future in smart screens because they cause the least damage to the human eye. The color contrast of OLED seems to be very much close to natural colors.


So, the World’s First Folding Smartphone is no more a daydream.

The smartphone had evolved from buttons and screen to touchscreen. The folding screens are the latest addition.
