The folding phone will use two monitors, members of Samsung's system software group said in an afternoon session for developers. It's a 7.3-inch interior display you'll see when the phone is fully expanded in tablet mode, but when you close it, a 4.5 outside screen like the smartphone already works in your pocket.
Samsung would not reveal any further details about handset hardware, but admitted when I asked if the screens could be made of different materials. My guess is that we will see Gorilla Glass lid glass on the 4.5 inch screen and a type of plastic that covers the inside.
Although multiple brands work on thin, foldable glass that can withstand bending hundreds of thousands of times without breaking, there is a great chance that Samsung could follow the footsteps of the Royole FlexPai folding phone and use a type of polymer, a plastic for to cover the screen material below. On Tuesday, Royole FlexPai showed to a group of journalists in San Francisco. This device is pre-ordered in China and available to developers globally.
In addition, the 7.3-inch screen can split into three active areas simultaneously. For example, you may see a spread across the screen. Or, the screen can split into two areas where you can see a sidebar. Let's say you want to send message and see two other apps at once. You will be able to multitask with all three on the folding Galaxy phone.
It's Flipboard's first vision for its app on Samsung's folding phone, which the news aggregate shared on Samsung's desire to inspire app developers to create their own applications on Samsung's folding phone and future phones, too. Google's support for Samsung's foldable phone is the key because it expands support for more active Android windows on this type of hybrid device.
Samsung and Google want you to jump seamlessly from using an 4.5-inch display to pick up exactly where you quit when you unfold your phone and start using its 7.3-inch screen.
