Royole FlexPai 3 could be the first foldable with a pop-up selfie camera

There's no word on when the phone could be announced.

What you need to know

  • An alleged render of the Royole FlexPai 3 has surfaced.
  • The leaked image suggests the foldable phone will come equipped with a pop-up selfie camera.
  • The phone is rumored to have a 7.2-inch display and a 3,360mAh battery.

Royole, which unveiled the world's first foldable phone back in 2018, is soon expected to launch its third foldable phone to challenge Samsung's Galaxy Z Fold 3. A render of the upcoming phone has been posted online by reliable leaker Evan Blass, giving us a clear look at its design.

As you can see in the leaked render above, the Royole FlexPai 3 will look very different from its predecessors. Unlike last year's FlexPai 2, the upcoming foldable will not have a vertical camera array on the left-hand side. Instead, it appears to feature a square-shaped camera bump housing only two sensors. The FlexPai 3 could also be the first Royole foldable to feature a pop-up selfie camera.

According to a listing for the phone that was spotted on the TENAA website earlier this year, it will come with a 7.2-inch inner screen. In addition to a smaller main display, the Royole FlexPai 3 is also expected to pack a much smaller battery than its predecessor. While the FlexPai 2 packs a 4,450mAh battery, the FlexPai 3 is said to come with a 3,360mAh cell. The phone is tipped to offer 5G connectivity as well.

The phone may not be anywhere near as impressive as Samsung's best foldable phones, but it is likely to be much more affordable. Royole launched the FlexPai 2 last year for 9,998 yuan (about $1,500) in China, roughly $500 cheaper than the Galaxy Z Fold 2.

The FlexPai 3 will likely be even more affordable, although it remains to be seen if the phone will be cheaper than Samsung's Galaxy Z Flip 3. It also remains to be seen if the FlexPai 3 will be sold in markets outside China. Until now, Royole foldables have been limited to China.

The hidden cost of food delivery

More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts
