Samsung hints foldable display, new Galaxy UX, Android 9 Pie Beta Program

Nichole VegaNov 06, 2018

Today, we have got some information directly from Samsung official who said that this week they would pass on some official details about its foldable smartphone. To prevent the smartphone's foldable hinge from any possible damage in the future, Samsung may place a gear in the hinge to ensure that the phone folds slowly. In regards to the latter, Samsung on Sunday posted a teaser of its rumored folding Galaxy phone on Facebook under its "Samsung Mobile" account.

It had been widely expected that top vendor like Samsung or Huawei would be the first but the California-based start-up beats big tech companies in launching the Royole FlexPai.

Chinese company Royole has (just barely) beaten the Korean electronics giant to the punch with its FlexPai (pronounced "flex-pie") handset, the first foldable phone you'll actually be able to buy.

Samsung Developer Conference (SDC), which is scheduled at Moscone West Convention Center, San Francisco on November 7-8.

The unit can be used when folded and unfolded, giving it the "portability of a smartphone plus the screen size of a high-definition tablet". Are you looking for foldable smartphones?

More confirmation arrives from the official Samsung Developers Conference 2018 app. The company is not really being secretive about it and president of Samsung Mobile DJ Koh has discussed the project openly a few times.

The device may feature a 7.3 inch primary display and a 4.6 inch secondary screen. Now, a report from Korea's The Bell has revealed specifications of the foldable device.

The promise of a foldable display is compelling. Folding an OLED display puts it under stress and will eventually damage it. Talking about the camera, there is a possibility that Samsung might add just one camera module on the Galaxy foldable phone. What this essentially means is that users can simply expect to carry a foldable glass screen in their pockets with hardly any bezels that makes it look like a traditional phone.
