Samsung may have a number of competitors in the foldable smartphone space. That concept device had a large, internal screen that could be divided into three display areas.

"Our goal is to offer developers a robust, scalable and open AI platform that makes it easy for them to launch and evolve the incredible experiences they create for our users", said Kyunghak Hyun, Product Manager of the AI Product Management Group at Samsung.

Samsung revealed - or semi-revealed - their new prototype handset at their Developers' Conference in San Francisco. It is basically a phone with a 4.6-inch Super AMOLED "cover display" that unfolds into a tablet with a 7.3-inch Super AMOLED "main display".

First races called in 2018 midterm elections
Democrats now need to win only nine more Republican House seats to reach the net gain of 23 seats they need to secure a majority. Some high profile senators are expected to be among that growing pool of candidates in the Democratic presidential primary.

One UI's "clean and minimal design keeps the most relevant content on the bottom half of the screen - making it more natural and comfortable for one-handed use", said Samsung in a release. Since Android Oreo and Android Pie require a better hardware to run smoothly, Google engineered Android Go for budget-friendly phones and even left out some of the apps that usually come pre-installed on every Android smartphone. These are first generation devices but imagine some years from now where physical ports have been removed, driving electronics significantly reduced in size, and batteries perhaps flexible, too.

They described the Infinity Flex Display as "the foundation of the smartphone of tomorrow" and said they intend to start production within months.

Google's head of Android UX, Mr Glen Murphy, who was on stage with Samsung, said Google would work with developers to bring more features to the phone.
