In 2019, Samsung's new smartphone is expected to be released on the market.
According to the BBC and Reuters, the Korean company presented the new Infinity Flex as the "foundation of tomorrow's smartphone." As it develops, the device looks like a tablet computer with a 7.3-inch (18.5 cm) display and when it's folded up, another smaller screen appears.
Unlike Royole Chinese FlexPai, based in California, which was usually displayed in China a few days ago, Samsung – with a Chinese company Huawei, who will first give a phone number before anticipating Royole – prevented it from accurately revealing what the outward appearance of Infinity Flex, which holds it in the casing.
Neither developers nor journalists could not touch or even see a new smartphone, which will be completely honest in the next event, the Athens -Macedonian News Agency says.
When folded, a new device – which can "run" three applications at a time – fits perfectly into your pocket. H Samsung has encouraged developers to develop new applications for Infinity Flex. Google's Android developer said at the event that it will help developers in this direction.
Korean company remains the number 1 in the global smartphone market, but in the third quarter of this year (July-September) it recorded a 13.4% drop in sales in the same quarter last year, according to the IDC research firm, from 22.1% to 20% , 3%.
In general, the smartphone market is falling several times, as it seems to be looking for a "catalyst" that will give it a new boost. Analysts believe that folding phones can not be broken, which combine a small size when stacking, and on a large screen for disclosure.
H Huawei announced plans to release the fifth generation mobile phone (5G) in mid-2019 to be folded. Royole's FlexPai, which has a 7.8-inch screen, will cost around $ 1,300 and will be released in 2019. In the first case, at least all phones are estimated at more than $ 1,000.
