This week, during Samsung's annual Developer Conference, the company announced that it will open up the new S Pen's remote functionality to third party developers. "We expect to see foldable products from several Android manufacturers", he said.

"Our goal is to offer developers a robust, scalable and open AI platform that makes it easy for them to launch and evolve the wonderful experiences they create for our users", said Kyunghak Hyun, Product Manager of the AI Product Management Group at Samsung.

Samsung, which makes iPhone OLED displays, will get us even closer if that Infinity-O screen prediction turns out to be accurate. Google is working with Samsung to help launch a device next year.

That's because - as noted by reliable leaker Ice Universe - one of the features of One UI is the ability for the color of the interface to match the color of the handset, and in demonstrating this Samsung showed a phone in silver, green, black, blue and pink shades.

"The foldable display lays the foundation for a new kind of mobile experience". "We are excited to work with developers on this new platform to create new value for our customers".


But they were unexpectedly beaten by a Chinese display start-up, Royole, last week.

Samsung has been leaking information to the media about its foldable Infinity Flex Display smartphone for weeks, and the SDC is where the company chose to show it for the first time. Its FlexPai folding phone was made available for order with a $1,318 starting price.

Samsung has embarked on a tasteful overhaul of how its phones look and work.

Royole said it would start filling orders in late December.

As part of its efforts to scale up Bixby services, Samsung is expanding support to five new languages in the coming months, including British English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.
