FlexPai, first released in January 2018 by Royole, was the first foldable phone that many people could afford. The phone brought a host of great features during that time. Well, according to the latest report, its successor Royole FlexPai 2 foldable phone went on sale today. Interestingly, the sale didn’t even last up to 2 seconds before all the available devices became sold out.
