Is This The Future Of Smartphones? (PHOTOS) by askifa1: 1:09pm On Nov 08


The South Korean company has teased the foldable phone for several weeks now, but now, the company has finally shown us what the device looks like
Just days after Royole unveils their Foldable device, Samsung also unveiled the foldable device at an event yesterday. The brand calls its foldable technology the Infinity Flex Display, while it hosts a tablet size screen display when unfolded. The device can fit into pocket, purse and can be held in the hand while you move around, depending on what you want.

Samsung demonstrated a foldable device during the event, although there was no conclusion on whether that would what we should expect or it’s just a template for the actual one, considering that the lightning was deemed in order to hide some of the features, although, with the help of camera, we were able to see what the device actually looks like. “There’s a device inside here,” said Justin Denison, SVP of mobile product marketing. “And it is stunning.”

Denison showed a device that folded out into a tablet and backs up into a candy bar-like form factor. The device includes a cover display that acts as a phone and a main 7.3-inch tablet display when it unfolds.

One of the interesting features of the device is the ability to multi-task, running up to three different apps simultaneously. While the product still looks very much like an unfinished business, Samsung says it will be able to start mass production of the Infinity Flex Display in a “matter of months,” according to Denison. Samsung isn’t saying exactly when we can expect to see more than just the concept device demonstrated on the stage.

The new device will operate on Google’s Android System, an extension of partnership for the launch of the mobile device by next year. Google is providing guidance for developers to start using existing features that are built into Android to support these foldable displays. Other specs of the smartphone include a standard 420 PPI, which is not the highest out there, but perfectly fine. The resolution, when folded, is 840 x 1960, but 1536 x 2152 when unfolded. The aspect ratios, however, are the more interesting specs here. The folded, phone version of the Infinity Flex has a 4.58-inch display with an aspect ratio of 21:9, which would make it pretty much the tallest device on the market and probably not the greatest screen for game-playing, video viewing, or anything like that. The unfolded, tablet version is clearly the primary mode for those types of activities, as it has a more standard 4.2:3 aspect ratio and a screen size of 7.3 inches. All of the aforementioned specs were seen on a tweet by Shara Tibkan as seen below,

While Samsung is not the only mobile brand working on releasing a foldable device, there is a prediction for a very competitive market in the nearest future, considering the likes of Huawei who teased to release its foldable device next year, LG also teased of a flexible OLED display screen,Lenovo, Oppo among various others.

The smartphone is expected to hit the international market in a matter of months, although the company has not stated specifically when to expect the device. What do you think of the new device? do share with us in the comment section.
