Samsung announces Infinity Flex Display for foldable smartphones

Royole Releases the World’s First Commercial Foldable Smartphone

Smartphone displays continue to grow (as bezels shrink), and now that Samsung has just unveiled its first foldable phone, the company has also made a decision to introduce a new user interface to reduce clutter and distractions.

The speaker, which was announced in August and is powered by Samsung's virtual assistant Bixby, is seen as a new rival to the Amazon Echo, Google Home and Apple HomePod.

The company even confirmed that Samsung meant to launch its foldable phone sometime in early 2019.

Android will now support devices that are half-phone, half-tablet with a high-tech, wraparound screen.

Enter Royole's FlexPai, now technically the world's first foldable smartphone.

Sadly, Samsung didn't give a date or even a timeline for when this device might available (even as just a preview), though Samsung claims mass-market production of these displays should start ramping up in the next few months.

Previous leaks have suggested a phone with 512GB storage and a tablet-like 7.3-inch display.

Dave Burke, vice president of engineering for Android, said: "It's an exciting concept and we expect to see foldable products from several Android manufacturers".

YOUR smartphone could "unfold" to become a tablet computer. and fold right back up when you're done, according to a groundbreaking demonstration at Samsung's Developers Conference in San Francisco this morning. Developers can use a feature that allows apps to adapt to a new screen size.

"Find and focus on the content you want easily, "Samsung's official website reads, "The decluttered screen shows relevant information with each tap, so you only get the essentials, one at a time".

We also now know that the phone can be folded "hundred of thousands of times" without getting damaged, and that the screen, when unfolded, measures 7.3-inches.

A hot potato: Samsung's new Infinity Flex Display represents the next milestone in the evolution of mobile display technology. Samsung deliberately kept most of the details under wraps, but the key points are that this has a "cover display" that functions as a fully functional smartphone.

Last year, ZTE Corp. announced a foldable phone that flopped with reviewers. The company has updated its Facebook profile picture with an image housing a folded Samsung logo.

There's also a number of other design changes that seem to be in effect, such as a greater emphasis on rounded elements and a new system-wide dark mode for a better viewing experience in darker environments or late at night, as well as a number of redesigned icons in general.

Samsung will not be the first to introduce a foldable device however.
