At its Samsung Developer Conference 2018, the Korean technology giant unveiled its much-anticipated foldable smartphone. While the company just showed a prototype, it surely gave us an idea of what to expect.
Prior to the reveal, Samsung introduced its new Infinity Flex Display technology. The company called it the next big breakthrough in the display technology. Based on the same, Samsung showed off a prototype.
From the first look, the device looks just like a thick and ugly smartphone with a regular touchscreen display on the front.
However, it opens up to reveal its second and bigger screen that turns the foldable phone into a tablet. When open, the users will be able to use three apps side-by-side.
