This year, at CES, the company debuted another novelty: the Royole Mirage smart speaker with a wraparound screen that uses the same flexible display technology.
Yes, the Royole Mirage is actually covered in a touchscreen, a 7.8-inch flexible AMOLED display with 1,920 x 1,440 px resolution.
The speaker is also fitted with a 5MP camera sensor but Royole didn’t say what it would be used for – we suspect video calling or home security.
The Royole Mirage is fitted with three 48mm drivers with 30W RMS and a passive radiator for 360 degree sound and two far-field microphones so you can boss around Alexa or other AI assistants.
The rest of the specs mention 2GB of RAM, 16 GB of onboard storage and a Snapdragon 524 processor.
What’s unclear is what operating system the Royole Mirage will use but we hope, for the sake of compatibility, that it’s Android-based.
If the design caught your eye, know that this unique smart speaker will launch sometime in the second half of this year and it won’t exactly be cheap: it will retail for $899.
