Samsung patent hints at another foldable smartphone design

Samsung unveiled the device at its company's developer conference Wednesday.

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.

One UI's "clean and minimal design keeps the most relevant content on the bottom half of the screen - making it more natural and comfortable for one-handed use", said Samsung in a release. In addition, Android will offer the function "App Continuity" - so apps, which were first started on the main screen, should continue to run without interruption after opening and support the possibilities of the larger screen. According to The Guardian, Samsung is not the only cellphone manufacturing company creating a foldable phone. The display is being called the Infinity Flex Display. "The experience was reengineered to reduce clutter and distractions, allowing the user to better focus and quickly navigate".

The software input, mainly the operating system to be customized for the flexible display is being worked on by Google and its Android team collaborating with Samsung's own team.


She said Royole told her the issues were "due to the adhesive used in the engineering samples". The app developers for Android have also to be kept in the loop to adapt to these changes.

Samsung is likely to fully introduce a device for sale at the Consumer Electronics Show in January or at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February.

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.
