  • Samsung gives peek at device that will fold

There's a 7.3-inch interior display you see when the phone's fully unfolded in tablet mode, but when you close it up, a 4.5 exterior screen acts like the smartphone already in your pocket.

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. But it's still a good sign that Samsung will be able to release a major software upgrade for its latest Note smartphone alongside the Galaxy S flagship.

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

Samsung is inviting beta testers to kick the tyres - you can find more here.

Little-known Chinese technology company Royole Corp first beat South Korean giant Samsung in launching the world's first foldable smartphone - and now early reviews suggest it actually works.

Samsung is promoting the idea of "share app ideas and share alike"; write an app for a smartphone and modify it using Developer Studio into a home-based app for the Samsung platform, if desired.

Other companies: Google has started working on foldable devices, too, The Verge reports.

Samsung is also adding five additional languages to Bixby in the coming months - such as British English, French, German, Italian and Spanish. "They'll have to prove that it's more than just a gimmick", said Mr O'Donnell. Several windows can be arranged and used on the large screen.

Dave Burke, vice president of engineering at Google, said at the Android Developer Summit that Google is "enhancing Android to take advantage of this new form factor with as little work as necessary". The experience was reengineered to reduce clutter and distractions, allowing the user to better focus and quickly navigate their phone.

The prototype displays that have been floating around for years will soon make it to actual consumer devices.
