A phone and a tablet- Samsung reveals foldable smartphone

A phone and a tablet- Samsung reveals foldable smartphone

Normally, one doesn't think of Samsung as necessarily being a haven for the worldwide development community.

"We have achieved significant advancements in AI and IoT, which will be crucial to bringing our connected living vision to life", D.J. Koh, President and CEO of Samsung's IT and Mobile Communications Division, said in a media advisory.

"But it's smart to open it up to developers early to do different types of experiences".

Samsung also used the developers conference to announce it would begin letting app developers use Bixby, its artificial-intelligence platform for Samsung's smartphones and home appliances.

Both reporters confirmed that the folding technology worked - halving the size of the 7.8-inch (20-centimetre) plastic screen with one 180-degree twist. It is based on Samsung Displays OLED panel. Samsung also has a New Infinity display in the works, as pointed out in the same image as the notched displays, though there's no news on what that display would be like.

The device's screen "had to be thinner than any other", he said, adding Samsung will be able to start mass production of the Infinity Flex Display in a "matter of months", which means it can be sold early next year at the earliest.

"They will have to prove that it's more than just a gimmick,"he said". These enhanced tools include SmartThings Cloud Connector, SmartThings Device Kit and SmartThings Hub Connector. WWST helps ensure devices and services are fully optimized for the platform, so consumers enjoy the best possible experience.

Bixby, too, is expected to come with a lot of new additions and not to mention that the company has introduced a new user interface for its upcoming devices dubbed One UI. Its minimalstic design keeps the most relevant content on the bottom half of the screen, making it more natural and comfortable for one-handed use, the company said.

The bigger screen can split into three active areas at once, meaning three apps can run at the same time.

"Yes, it feels a bit gimmicky, but the FlexPai does actually deliver on its promise of being the "first foldable smartphone", Mashable's reporter Karissa Bell said.

The device will be called the "Infinity Flex Display".
