Here's Samsung's Folding Smartphone With A 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Display

This Company Just Beat Samsung with The World’s 1st Foldable Smartphone Karlie Powell

Samsung during the opening keynote of its 2018 developer conference on Wednesday announced its Infinity Flex Display and briefly showcased the technology on stage.

Since glass is static and inherently inflexible, Samsung developed a new substitute: an advanced composite polymer.

Mass production is expected "in the coming months" and Denison even shared a roadmap with rollable and stretchable displays planned for the future.

Samsung today finally showed off its foldable phone: a device that can convert from a handset to a mini tablet through the use of two displays. The company's prototype device also has a screen on one of its outer faces for use when the full-size internal display isn't needed or practical. Part pocket-size flip phone, part tablet, it's the most interesting idea I've seen in smartphone design for years.

Users can have up to three apps running at once on the tablet-sized screen, which Samsung calls its "Multi-active window" feature.

In October, Bloomberg News reported that the folding phone would go on sale during the second quarter of 2019 at the earliest.

However, the front screen looked pointedly smaller than the silhouette of the phone Anjum held up. When folded, there is what Samsung calls a Cover Display.




Samsung says the 7.3-inch "Infinity Flex Display" can be folded "hundreds of thousands of times" thanks to the display's thinness and flexibility.

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

Samsung needs to get the foldable phone right - hoping it will reverse steep declines in profit for its mobile division and restore some of the premium cachet its brand has lost to Apple Inc.

Google revealed new Android support for "foldables" before Samsung had the chance to debut its own folding phone. Samsung may have mastered the hardware, but the interface of this unique form factor will be what makes or breaks it. In phone mode, you can scroll through the news app like normal.

Samsung will not be the first to introduce a foldable device however.

Samsung's developer conference is taking place from November 7 to November 8 in San Francisco and Express.co.uk will bring you all the news live as it happens.
