    Gadgets From The 2019 Consumer Electronics Show You May Not Know About - (Plus a link to my Toy Fair 2019 ABC spot.)

    My World News Now on-air 2019 Toy Fair Spot is here:


    And my CES spot as seen on air is here: https://abcnews.go.com/WNN/video/ces-high-tech-gadgets-60535772 

    We start with one of the real attention-getters at the show. The Royale Flexpai foldable smartphone/tablet.  

    Billed as the world’s first commercial foldable smartphone, it's a combination of mobile phone and tablet. This is Royole’s 2nd generation, ultrathin, fully flexible display that can be used folded or unfolded. Now you have the portability of a smartphone, plus the 7.8” screen size of a high-definition tablet. The flexible display has a 4:3 aspect ratio and 1920 x 1440 resolution. When folded, you have three screens available; front, back and edge. The edge screen displays notifications for incoming calls, emails, and messages. The device also includes two high-res cameras with 20 and 16 megapixels that can be bent to capture objects at unique angles. When folded, incoming calls or photos can be conveniently taken from either side. A consumer version should be available later in the year. (It's already on sale in China.) If you're in a hurry to be first you can preorder the developer model. The 128GB model is $1,318.00 and the 256 GB model is $1469.00. The company says it ships in 60-90 days.
