Foldable phones are coming - Google announces official Android support

Royole Releases the World’s First Commercial Foldable Smartphone

The First Foldable Smartphone is Here & It Isn't Samsung

One can hope. Either way, the era of Samsung not releasing notched handsets left and right is nearly over.

The phone uses technology which sets "the foundation of the smartphone of tomorrow", according to Samsung. It's expected the final smartphone will cost well over £1000, and will launch in the first quarter of 2019.

Sadly, Samsung didn't give a date or even a timeline for when this device might available (even as just a preview), though Samsung claims mass-market production of these displays should start ramping up in the next few months. He did unfold the device, however, and as expected, it transformed into a 7.3-inch tablet. Meanwhile, the second features one continuous screen on the exterior. Part pocket-size flip phone, part tablet, it's the most interesting idea I've seen in smartphone design for years.

Since this is a new form factor, it runs the new OneUI, which will allow users to run three apps at the same time, thanks to the Multi-Active Window concept.

Royole, for instance, expects to sell its foldable-screen phone - the FlexPai - for at least NZ$1900 once it comes to the U.S. - something that won't happen until next year, at the earliest.

In the meantime Samsung is opening up development tools to ensure apps will be ready for the foldable device when it's released. The foldable screens could increase display space to the size of a mini-tablet, but fold like a wallet so they revert to the size of regular phones.

However, the front screen looked pointedly smaller than the silhouette of the phone Anjum held up.

While the finer details on One UI are still pretty light, Samsung has explained the interface comes with an emphasis on the bottom portion of the display.

Rumours suggest Samsung could place a price of over £1,300 on this new phone.

Burke used the event to announce Google's support for Android devices with foldable screens.

Knowing that we only have to survive through the holidays before the future of mobile is here, is nothing compared to those excruciating five years that Samsung has been teasing us with that foldable unicorn.

Making matters slightly awkward, the move was announced as Samsung hosted its own developer conference in San Francisco.
