It also announced its take on the notch, with not one but three notch designs for its future devices - the Infinity U, Infinity V and Infinity O.

"This device is very much a first-generation product", he said. Now, it is evolving into a scalable, open AI platform to support many devices, including fridge and TVs.

The foldable phone will use two displays, members of Samsung's system software group said at an afternoon session for developers. Do you think it will offer useful new features for the OS?

The main screen of the Samsung foldable comes with a 4.2:3 aspect ratio and the cover a 21:9 aspect ratio. Others, like Xioami, Lenovo and LG are reported to be at different stages of developing their own versions of foldable smartphones or smartphones with flexible displays.

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. "The experience was reengineered to reduce clutter and distractions, allowing the user to better focus and quickly navigate". That requires app developers to comply, but Samsung is probably the only Android vendor with a competent suite of apps to rival Google's.

She said Royole told her the issues were "due to the adhesive used in the engineering samples". And while Galaxy Note 9 owners will not have access to the Android Pie beta program, it looks like Samsung is hard at work to make sure it is able to release Pie in January for its current flagships.
