Samsung gives first glimpse of foldable phone, Smartphones News & Top Stories

Royole Releases the World’s First Commercial Foldable Smartphone

Samsung today unveiled it's highly-anticipated folding phone, powered by an all new "Infinity Flex Display".

Here are some photos, then head here to get signed up to try One UI on your own select Galaxy device. The keynote (which will likely mark the reveal of Samsung's new phone) begins November 7 at 10 a.m. PST. When closed a separate smaller display on the handset's other side comes into use. The phone morphs into a 7.3-inch tablet when folded out and Samsung dimmed the light during the demonstration to protect the design elements.

"We have been living in a world where the size of a screen could only be as large as the device itself, " said Justin Denison, Samsung's senior vice president of mobile product marketing. "Two-screen devices and one-screen devices".

'Users now have the best of both worlds: a compact smartphone that unfolds to reveal a larger immersive display for multitasking and viewing content, ' Samsung explained. The company recently unveiled a cavalcade of new technologies in development, including "under-screen" sensors and cameras. We're not entirely convinced folding phones will end up being the-next-big-thing, but it'll be interesting to see how the format shakes out. Added to this is a rumoured price tag that could start around the $2 000 mark, but Samsung likely will not reveal any pricing information for its foldable phone before it's ready to be debuted in full sometime next year.

Furthermore, Epic Games has decided to make core changes to the gameplay, and the Storm damage cap is changed from 8 to 10 damage. This Ninja becomes more fearsome and energetic at night, and will become available in the Event Store on November 7 at 7 PM ET.

We also now know that the phone can be folded "hundred of thousands of times" without getting damaged, and that the screen, when unfolded, measures 7.3-inches. It uses a new display technology called Infinity Flex Display that lets you open and close the device over and over without any degradation.

The CEO of Samsung's mobile division, DJ Koh, previously "hinted" the tech company could finally lift the lid on a foldable phone at its developer event which is taking place in San Francisco.

Are you excited about the concept of a foldable phone? The company has updated its Facebook profile picture with an image housing a folded Samsung logo. In phone mode, you can scroll through the news app like normal.

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.
