Samsung are the newest company to unveil a foldable smartphone

There's a 7.3-inch interior display you see when the phone's fully unfolded in tablet mode, but when you close it up, a 4.5 exterior screen acts like the smartphone already in your pocket. The display showed a tablet that folds into a device that has a cover-display.

Samsung Electronics unveiled its anticipated foldable phone in San Francisco on Wednesday, urging Android developers to start writing apps for it. Google will also adapt Android Q accordingly and support these new functions in the operating system. But Samsung is evolving it into a scalable intelligence platform to support a set of diverse products and services.

At Samsung Developer Conference 2018 here, the South Korean tech giant announced the opening of Bixby Developer Studio, an Integrated Development Environment (IDE), to developers. This device is on preorder in China and available to developers globally. 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.

After lacklustre response, Apple pauses production of the iPhone XR
Apple closed just above $200 amid a wider tech sell-off which has seen other FAANG stocks fall in recent weeks. The iPhone XR - priced starting at $749 - is meant to replace the iPhone 8 introduced a year ago.

Samsung is also adding five additional languages to Bixby in the coming months - such as British English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.

In addition, the 7.3-inch screen will be able to split into three active areas at once. "Developers have more ways to reach users, and users get more opportunities to make the a lot of them", Kyunghak said. Google is working with Samsung to help launch a device next year.

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. The experience was reengineered to reduce clutter and distractions, allowing the user to better focus and quickly navigate their phone. It turns out, however, that the dream of having phones with true all-screen designs will have to wait at least one more year, as that technology isn't yet ready.
