SDC 2018: Samsung Innovating in Folding Phones, IoT, Mobile UX

Bixby is now open to developers through the Bixby Developer Studio The Five Coolest Things Samsung Announced At SDC 2018 (So Far)

One thing worth noting is that these individual capsules will not be immediately present on Bixby-enabled smartphones.

"When it's open, it's a tablet offering a big-screen experience", said Justin Denison, Samsung's SVP of mobile product marketing, according to Wired. The device can be opened to reveal a 7.3-inch tablet.

Moving on to one of the more immediate benefits for users across the globe, Samsung has confirmed that its assistant will gain support for five new languages within the "coming months".

Folded in two, it appeared to resemble a thick phone.

Samsung is among a few developers working on foldable phones. For example, users will be able to use three active apps simultaneously. The app experience transitions from the smaller display to the larger display as the device unfolds. "They'll have to prove that it's more than just a gimmick", said Mr O'Donnell.

During the Samsung Developers Conference, the Korean electronics giant announced both its Infinity Flex display and Google's support for foldable screens.

Trump was interviewed by Jones in December 2015 when he was still just a candidate in the GOP presidential primaries. After asking a follow up question, Acosta let go of the mic . "It's ridiculous for anyone to suggest he did".

During the SDC keynote, Samsung also outlined its commitment to making connected IoT devices work seamlessly together via the new SmartThings app.

"We expect to see foldable products from several Android manufacturers", he added.

"Infinity Flex Display will operate on an entirely new mobile experience and form factor", Samsung said. This will make it easier for developers to connect their devices and services to the platform via new tools including the SmartThings Cloud Connector, SmartThings Device Kit and SmartThings Hub Connector. The company today announced the launch of Bixby Capsules, that's what it's calling the features or services that developers create for its assistant.

But they were unexpectedly beaten by a Chinese display start-up, Royole, last week.

Not alike: I've previously reported on the foldable smartphone rumor. Royole said it would start filling orders late next month. The theme for this year's event was "turning now into next", with the company finally unveiling its plans for folding smartphones, new advancements in AI and its plans for 5G.

Bixby Capsules: These are containers of sorts for features or services created for Bixby by the developer community and made easily accessible to consumers through Bixby Marketplace.
