Samsung unveils upcoming foldable smartphone

SAN FRANCISCO: Samsung Electronics Co. on Wednesday showcased its upcoming smartphone with a foldable display slated to be released in the early part of 2019.
At the Samsung Developer Conference 2018 held in San Francisco, the South Korean tech giant outlined some specs of its much-anticipated Infinity Flex Display technology, calling it the next big breakthrough.
The infinity display is expected to be employed on the company’s upcoming high-end smartphones.
At the gathering, Samsung took the wraps off a dual-screen device that looks like a standard smartphone when folded and sports a modest 4.58-inch OLED touchscreen display. However, the smartphone grows into a 7.3-inch tablet when the OLED panel is fully unfolded.
“Is your app ready for foldable phones?” said Park Ji-sun, Samsung’s senior engineer, adding that the “in-folding” type display has a pixel density of 420 dots per inch.
Other specs, such as those of the battery, and the exact date of the launch, were not released.
Moreover, the 7.3-inch screen is able to split into three zones at the same time, allowing users to use Internet, multimedia and messages simultaneously.
“The cover display is slightly smaller than displays of recent smartphones on the market, but all of the applications can be used just like on the main display,” Park stressed.
