“We are not not competing with existing markets,” he said.

How to make technology that makes the folds of the screen are much less visible,” said Aryo again.

New Generation Flexion Hinge
Aryo said the key to the advantages he claimed was a hinge technology called the New Generation Flexion Hinge. “This hinge looks hard to bend but, when it’s combined with the screen, it opens easily,” he said.
