The Samsung Galaxy foldable phone just got beat by this

Samsung's Galaxy X (or F, or whatever it'll be called) may well be beaten to the punch by a device called FlexPai. Manufactured and sold by the folks at Royole, the Royole FlexPai is, indeed, what they call "the world's first foldable smartphone."

iPhone XS Max snatches DisplayMate crown from Galaxy Note 9

And so it begins. In the past, Samsung and Apple each had their own separate thrones in DisplayMate’s kingdom, with Samsung lording it over OLED smartphones while Apple reigned triumphant among LCD mobile screens. With Apple’s switch to OLED in the iPhone X last year, the narrative was destined to become a pendulum swinging back and forth between the frenemies.
