Samsung Developers Conference 2018: Everything You Need to Know

Sarah Tew  CNET

The company famously partnered with Epic Games this year to bring the insanely popular Fortnite to its tablets and smartphones.

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

Also on November 7, Google announced Android support for this new foldable smartphone form factor, so the starting software support is in place and is expected to continue over time.

The bigger screen can split into three active areas at once, meaning three apps can run at the same time.

The main screen of the Samsung foldable comes with a 4.2:3 aspect ratio and the cover a 21:9 aspect ratio. The app experience transitions from the smaller display to the larger display as the device unfolds.

Is this a classic case of J.K.Rowling meddling with the beloved franchise from beyond the grave? The thing is, though, Crimes is set around 1927.

"They will have to prove that it's more than just a gimmick,"he said". "The experience was reengineered to reduce clutter and distractions, allowing the user to better focus and quickly navigate". Samsung first unveiled a prototype for a foldable phone in 2014, which looks vastly different than the one we saw on Wednesday. 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. At SDC 2018, Samsung showed developers new ways to bring a more conversational, personal and useful intelligent assistant experience to more consumers. Samsung also has a New Infinity display in the works, as pointed out in the same image as the notched displays, though there's no news on what that display would be like. Royole said it would start filling orders late next month.

There is a high chance it will carry a price tag of around 2 million won ($1,790).

Samsung needs to get the foldable phone right to reverse steep declines in profit and restore some of the cachet its brand has lost to Apple. The fruit of developers' labour - dubbed Bixby Capsules - can then be sold as standalone apps in the Bixby Marketplace.

The announcement means other companies can start building the voice assistant system into their own machines and devices as well. Think of the capsules like Skills for Amazon's Alexa.

Samsung is also adding five additional languages to Bixby in the coming months - such as British English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.
