The South Korean smartphone manufacturer Samsung unveiled a smartphone prototype, which a few days ago opens as a book at a development conference in San Francisco. However, analysts expected the presentation of a very simple smartphone, but only the technology on which it was based was expected.
On the front of the prototype presented by Samsung, over 5000 software developers and partner companies can find a relatively small screen with a diagonal of 11.6 centimeters, while the main display in the unfolded state is 18.5 centimeters.
In the folded state, the device can be used as a regular smartphone. Once opened by the user, the used application moves to a much larger screen that is called by Samsung's Infinity Flex. Of course, on this screen you can display much more information and content than on smaller ones. This is useful not only for photos, videos and games, but also for example. also for message applications that can display many more messages.
What's more: according to Samsuna's messages, up to three applications can be used simultaneously on a spreading machine, without opacity. To ensure a more comfortable use, a new look of the One UI interface should be provided. In addition, Google announced that the future version of the operating system will also support folded phones.
How to see a new smartphone is not known yet. During the development conference, Samsung presented the prototype, so you could not see almost anything but the screen. In addition, it is not known when the new smartphone should enter the market.
Starting sales should not be too far away. Samsung plans to launch the "next few months" thanks to mass production of Infinity Flex. Therefore, analysts expect the first Samsung hands-free car kit to be available in 2019.
As the next generation Infinity Flex is the next generation, Samsung invited everyone present at the development conference to take part. If their applications are not suitable, the folded phone will also be an empty device without actual content.
