Samsung may just be hours away from showing the world its foldable Galaxy X, but it has been pipped to the post by the Royale Corporation, which launched its FlexPai phone to journalists on Monday.

The reveal is also created to help developers ensure their apps are optimised for the folding screen, because as we all know devices are doomed to fail if they don't get the right app support.

Samsung has high hopes on it next big phone innovation- a foldable Galaxy smartphone.

We know Samsung is set to announce details of its foldable phone at the Samsung Developer Conference on November 7 or 8, but it looks like we won't see the entire device over the two day event.

For now the phone is available for pre-order as a developer edition and costs $1,318 for 128 GB of storage, and $1,469 for 256 GB.

The official moniker for Samsung's foldable smartphone remains unknown.

"Unlike our flagship products, the foldable phone is a completely new concept in terms of design and user experience, which requires a different approach", a Samsung official said.

Samsung has already dropped hints about its foldable phone but it has stopped being coy about it when it changed its social media profile images into a folded Samsung logo.

The device is rumored to come with a 7 inch foldable flexible display that folds in half, the device is also rumored to have a secondary display for notifications when it is folded in half. In fact for Samsung, the focus has been more on including features that would help user get the most of the foldable screen. That report also said that the SDC18 launch would be more of a soft launch, as Samsung may not actually show the full device during the keynote. If the unfolded experience is the same as the tablet, why would they (consumers) buy it?,' Koh told the site at the IFA tech conference in Berlin earlier this year.

The foldable phone will go on sale as a consumer device in China, but for now is only available as a developer model in the United States from December. The larger, main display on the inside turns inactive when folded and shows up on the smaller display on the outside. The company could first unveil the phone in its homeland followed by other countries.
