At its developer conference in San Francisco on Wednesday, Samsung officially announced that it will launch a foldable smartphone some time in 2019.
Justin Denison, Samsung senior vice president of mobile marketing, showed off the phone, which is a tablet when it's fully opened and then a phone when it's closed. 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 foldable display lays the foundation for a new kind of mobile experience," DJ Koh, president and CEO of Samsung IT and mobile communications division, said in a statement. "We are excited to work with developers on this new platform to create new value for our customers."
Up to three apps will be able to run simultaneously, using something Samsung calls multi active window. Samsung says it will be able to start mass production of the Infinity Flex Display in a "matter of months." In addition to the new foldable display, Samsung also announced it was working on stretchable and rollable screens, though it did not show off those products on stage.
