"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. The lights on the stage dimmed to deliberately obscure details of the device, and Denison opened it like a book to show a main organic light-emitting diode (OLED) screen - which Samsung has dubbed "Infinity Flex Display" - that measures 7.3 inches diagonally.

Of course, as with any Samsung patent (or patents in general), this doesn't mean that we will actually see this product commercially available.

That confirmation came at its developer conference in San Francisco, where we also got a look at Samsung's new One UI for both its regular smartphones and the upcoming foldable device.

Foldable phones promise the screen of a small tablet in a pocket-sized device. Its minimalstic design keeps the most relevant content on the bottom half of the screen, making it more natural and comfortable for one-handed use, the company said.




“When its closed, its a phone” and “when its open, its a tablet”, the company said at its developers conference, explaining that it is working with Google and developers to optimize Android apps for this type of screen.

The new device is called J4 Core, and it's not much of a huge upgrade from the J2 Core. "The experience was reengineered to reduce clutter and distractions, allowing the user to better focus and quickly navigate".

Samsung has been leaking information to the media about its foldable Infinity Flex Display smartphone for weeks, and the SDC is where the company made a decision to show it for the first time. That requires app developers to comply, but Samsung is probably the only Android vendor with a competent suite of apps to rival Google's.

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