Samsung are the newest company to unveil a foldable smartphone

Sarah Tew  CNET

According to Samsung Exynos' Twitter page, the company plans to show off the new Exynos processor on November 14th.

Samsungs upcoming device features a 7.3-inch 1536x2152-pixel “Infinity Flex” OLED display when it is open. The display showed a tablet that folds into a device that has a cover-display. These are first generation devices but imagine some years from now where physical ports have been removed, driving electronics significantly reduced in size, and batteries perhaps flexible, too.

Samsung revealed - or semi-revealed - their new prototype handset at their Developers' Conference in San Francisco.

Only three years ago Samsung's UI looked like a gaudy vehicle boot sale, which felt out of place as Samsung's own futuristic AMOLED curved panels were rolling into mass production. The experience was reengineered to reduce clutter and distractions, allowing the user to better focus and quickly navigate their phone. "We are excited to work with developers on this new platform to create new value for our customers". Huawei CEO Richard Yu confirmed recently that the Chinese giant, now the world's second-largest smartphone vendor after Samsung, was working on foldable 5G phones.

"Yes, it feels a bit gimmicky, but the FlexPai does actually deliver on its promise of being the "first foldable smartphone", Mashable's reporter Karissa Bell said.

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

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