Samsung reveals mobiles with Infinity Flex Display

Samsung today unveiled it's highly-anticipated folding phone, powered by an all new "Infinity Flex Display". The keynote (which will likely mark the reveal of Samsung's new phone) begins November 7 at 10 a.m. PST. As the piece would leave a small space between the two halves of the main screen when it was folded so as not to break with impact.

Samsung is hoping that a foldable smartphone captures the imagination of the public and reinvigorates the slumping smartphone market that's yet to experience the kind of innovative leaps since Apple first debuted the iPhone in 2007.

Although Denison did not release pricing details, he said the Samsung "will be ready to start mass production in the coming months", although it was unclear if he was referring to the foldable display screens or the actual smartphones.

Google Play Announces Free 4K Upgrades for Previous Digital Movie Purchases
Last year Apple chose to upgrade already purchased HD movies to 4K HDR versions for free , and now Google Play is following suit. Google says that "most" 4K movies on Google Play will now be cheaper than they were before. 4K movies used to sit at around $30.

The announcement was made by VP of Engineering for Android, Dave Burke at the 2018 Android Dev Summit. The company's prototype device also has a screen on one of its outer faces for use when the full-size internal display isn't needed or practical. Developers can use a feature that allows apps to adapt to a new screen size.

Unlike Royole's FlexPai, Samsung obscured the final look of its device by placing it in a case so as to hold off revealing its look until a later event.

But analysts say a flexible phone has the potential to strengthen Samsung's brand and boost interest in its wider family of devices.

"So when he came after the game to make his apologies, I accepted his apologies". "We were wrong, we made a mistake". "I have a contract and until the final days of my contract, I only think about Manchester United ".

The South Korean electronics giant also launched flexible-mobile screen technology for its foldable phones, called infinity flex display and said it is working with Google on development.

The reveal comes at a time when interest in foldable phones is heating up. The company has updated its Facebook profile picture with an image housing a folded Samsung logo. The animations are smooth, icons look good, and Samsung's idea of things being more comfortable to look at actually plays well here.

Now that Google has officially announced support for foldable Android devices, it's likely that the first bendable smartphone isn't that far off. In phone mode, you can scroll through the news app like normal.

Khashoggi killing was ‘grave mistake’, don’t know details, says Saudi foreign minister
Last month, Germany approved €416 million ($480 million) worth of military exports to Saudi Arabia for 2018. Another Saudi official attributed the death to a chokehold.

The ability of the larger display to support three active apps all at the same time will be a key feature for the device, said Samsung principal engineer Jisun Park during the session. The smartphone-tablet hybrid was first unveiled to journalists at an event in San Francisco, Monday, November 5, United States time (Tuesday, November 6, Philippine time).
