Samsung expected 'to announce foldable smartphone'

Samsung foldable display smartphone

Today's the day. After years of rumors, leaks and speculation, Samsung is finally expected to announce its foldable smartphone-or at least how it's interface will work-at the 2018 Samsung Developer Conference.

One can hope. Either way, the era of Samsung not releasing notched handsets left and right is nearly over.

In an indication of how hard it is to make a flexible screen that's also durable, Samsung first announced its plans to build a folding-screen phone five years ago. Chinese company Royole just launched a $1,300 foldable phone called FlexPai.

Denison said production of the Infinity Display will begin in the next few months. "It's an exciting concept and we expect to see foldable products from several Android manufacturers". The new look is optimized for controlling devices with one thumb, a necessity as screens become larger. You can simply unfold the device to get a larger tablet-sized screen.

Essential Phone: The start-up beat Apple to featuring a camera notch in its display, which allowed the rest of the screen to extend upwards. We're not entirely convinced folding phones will end up being the-next-big-thing, but it'll be interesting to see how the format shakes out. Huawei has also said that it's working on a foldable 5G phone.

A potential catalyst is coming with the introduction of phones featuring flexible screens that can be folded in half without breaking.

In teasing the software capabilities, it also revealed that Samsung's foldable phone would be launching next year.

And a recent post of social media has added fuel to the fire with an image of a folded Samsung logo being pushed out on Samsung's Facebook and Twitter channels. Samsung showed off their first smartphone with a fully-foldable OLED panel.
