It's 2018, and the latest technology is over us: Folding smartphones. Yes, we may have already gone through this phase with flip phones, but if you think it's not impressive, you've hardly seen what Samsung has had on your sleeve lately. We got our first look at what's coming from the mobile phone giant recently and consumers will get their hands on it much faster than they might have imagined: It's coming to the audience in the coming months.
On a special occasion, Samsung's senior vice president of global marketing, Justin Denison, showed off the phone to an avid audience. It looks like a smaller smartphone when folded in half, but can easily unfold into a larger tablet when it's swallowed completely. A new type of technology that Samsung has called Infinity Flex Display strengthens the jaw wall. It's durable, light and surprisingly formable ̵
As far as apps go, technology can run three apps simultaneously through Samsung's new "Multi Active Window" system. It should be able to achieve quite a lot of software as well, considering Denison's mention that Google's Android platform is behind the new folding display technology all the way.
Of course, the product shown during the event was just a prototype for what the final project would eventually look like. It can get even more polished from there. Currently, the Samsung team looks to offer battery life comparable to what the Galaxy phones already have, with a closed screen size of 4.58 inches with a 21: 9 format and a resolution of 840 x 1960 and the screen's density of 420 dpi . As it unfolds, it sports a 7.3 inch screened 4.2: 3 aspect ratio with a resolution of 1536 × 2152 and screen density of 420 dpi.
There is more information coming as Samsung continues to perfect the latest addition to its latest and best product, but we must wait and see what's happening as the months march on. Things just get cooler from here.
