Foldable devicesOLED display technology is now making inroads in the TV market but it also has the potential to change how we use our handheld devices.

Samsungs upcoming device features a 7.3-inch 1536x2152-pixel “Infinity Flex” OLED display when it is open.

"There is a device in here and it is stunning", Denison said. If other Go devices are any indication, the Galaxy J4 Core will be priced pretty fairly; its predecessor costs just over a hundred bucks. Pricing and availability are yet to be announced. Both screens boast resolutions of a standard 420 pixels-per-inch density.

Samsung revealed - or semi-revealed - their new prototype handset at their Developers' Conference in San Francisco. Google is working with Samsung to help launch a device next year. "We expect to see foldable products from several Android manufacturers", he said.

"The foldable display lays the foundation for a new kind of mobile experience", said Koh Dong-jin, president and CEO of the IT and mobile communications division at Samsung. A new foundation?Why would we want our displays to fold? Others, like Xioami, Lenovo and LG are reported to be at different stages of developing their own versions of foldable smartphones or smartphones with flexible displays.

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




Samsung dribbled out a few more details on Wednesday about the foldable phone destined to shake up the smartphone industry in 2019. Its FlexPai folding phone was made available for order with a $1,318 starting price.

She said Royole told her the issues were "due to the adhesive used in the engineering samples".

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. The app developers for Android have also to be kept in the loop to adapt to these changes. Google's support for Samsung's foldable phone is key, because it widens support for multiple active Android windows on this type of hybrid device.

Bixby started as a practical way to use voice to interact with the phone.

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.
