Samsung unveils its first foldable smartphone

Royole Releases the World’s First Commercial Foldable Smartphone

"Justin Denison, senior vice president of mobile product marketing at Samsung, detailed the" Infinity Flex Display" that makes the "new form factor" possible at the Samsung Developer Conference Wednesday.

Now, it would seem the Samsung Experience UI in the process of being replaced by the all-new One UI.

But that's still speculation at this point, and it's worth betting that at least one Samsung phone will be launched in 2019 with a display notch.

Samsung is expected to unveil a foldable smartphone with a flexible screen at its developer conference.

Mass production is expected "in the coming months" and Denison even shared a roadmap with rollable and stretchable displays planned for the future. The device has two different modes; a cover display that acts as a phone, and a main 7.3-inch tablet.

"Granted, it feels miles away in quality from a high-end modern flagship, but it is still the first real foldable device I've seen in person, and not just in a concept video or prototype stage", Nick Statt of The Verge said. Meanwhile, the second features one continuous screen on the exterior. If you want something bigger you can unfold to reveal the larger tablet display hiding inside. The company recently unveiled a cavalcade of new technologies in development, including "under-screen" sensors and cameras.

As reported by Letsgodigital, the patent also makes mention of a "hologram device" which will make it possible to show "3D projection images in the air using interference of light". A point which is relevant here as during the announcement Samsung confirmed its Infinity Flex and it's One UI solutions are created to go hand-in-hand to provide users with a mobile experience and the ability "to do things they couldn't do with an ordinary smartphone".

The reveal comes at a time when interest in foldable phones is heating up.

Both of those screens will have a big impact on battery life, so Samsung will have to include a large battery to keep the phone lasting all-day long.

The yearly tech show takes place in Las Vegas from January 8 and is often used by firms to showcase TVs and screen technology.

Making matters slightly awkward, the move was announced as Samsung hosted its own developer conference in San Francisco.
