  • Royole Releases the World’s First Commercial Foldable Smartphone

Although the device wasn't shown off in great detail since SDC is a developer conference, Samsung did share details about the display itself and some of the software on it. Samsung is calling the foldable phone's display technology "Infinity Flex".

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.

At the company's Android Dev Summit, Google noted that Android will have support for screens that bend and fold.

ORIGINAL: Samsung's Developers Conference begins later today and it could offer a first look at one of the most exciting smartphones in years. "As a result, we'll be ready to start mass production in the coming months".

However, if you unfold the smartphone, you're exposed to a large, tablet-sized display that gives you an incredible amount of screen real estate.

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".

The smartphone also works with Samsung's revamped smartphone user interface, dubbed One UI, that was created to work with the device's multiple screens. Unfortunately, we don't have any information with regards to specs or pricing for this upcoming Galaxy phone with the Infinity Flex Display, although the latter is expected to be astronomical.


However, the front screen looked pointedly smaller than the silhouette of the phone Anjum held up. Beyond this being a design that's aimed at catering to larger displays, Samsung also argues the new UI makes "it more natural and comfortable for one-handed use" in general.

Samsung's push to make foldable displays the next thing in phones has Google's official blessing, too.

Screen technology has already been revealed that allows displays to be rolled with LG showing off its foldable TVs earlier this year.

Android is going to support foldable phones. In phone mode, you can scroll through the news app like normal.

Last month, Samsung hinted at its foldable smartphone through a twitter post.

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