The device does not fold flat and was quite hard to hold, Bell said, adding that the plastic display lifted a little over the hinges and made a "crunching sound" while folding.
If your phone don't fold, you're lame and old.
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. "We expect to see foldable products from several Android manufacturers", he said.
The foldable smartphone from Samsung, which has been much talked about for a fairly long period appears to be finally here, though up to now, only at a conceptual stage.
The high-level idea for the entire conference is for the company, whose smartphones, video screens and other products are globally pervasive, is to make it easier for developers and business partners to efficiently build, launch and scale new applications for those millions of devices around the world. The app experience transitions from the smaller display to the larger display as the device unfolds.
At first glance, one of the most noticeable improvements with the Galaxy J4 Core compared to the J2 Core is the display.
Reporters at the American technology network The Verge, and digital media website Mashable, were among those to get their hands on Royole's FlexPai device at the event in San Francisco. Bixby could then become an alternative to Google Assistant or Amazon's Alexa, even though the Samsung platform is widely perceived as weaker than its competitors when it comes to recognizing and processing voice commands. Royole said it would start filling orders late next month.
Samsung is also adding five additional languages to Bixby in the coming months - such as British English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.
