Samsung completes the development of the first foldable smartphone with a unique interface
Bloomberg told new details about folding Samsung smartphone with flexible screen. The development is already at the final stage.
The developers choose between the two prototypes. One is folded in the horizontal plane and more like smart phones-clamshell. The second – vertical and like the foldable tablet.
Designers tend to “portrait” prototype because they are easier to manage with one hand. Under folding screen failed to embed a fingerprint sensor because of technical difficulties.
In the folded state, the user available area of the screen with a diagonal of 4 inches, with it the user can without opening the smartphone, work with alerts, mail, messages and the like. Earlier in the network appeared the information that unfolded the diagonal will be 7 inches.
To open smartphone will with a click like the once popular Motorola Razr, but more smoothly. Instead of glass screens coated with film, such as that used in the photos. Some Samsung staff worried that such screens are not as glossy as users are used to, and it may not please them.
The prototype weighs 200 grams because of the large screen. But even for that weight the manufacturer had to go for a compromise and use a smaller battery capacity. The mechanism can withstand more than 200 thousand cycles of opening and closing.
The smartphone interface is being developed jointly by Samsung and Google on the basis of a special version of Android. The final interface depends on which version of the design of the smartphone will choose the Samsung.
The first show of the smartphone Samsung is planning to hold a 7 or 8 November at the conference for developers, Samsung Developer Conference. The transition of a smartphone to commercialization is not expected until the second quarter of 2019.
