Samsung Developers Conference 2018: Everything You Need to Know

According to The Guardian, Samsung is not the only cellphone manufacturing company creating a foldable phone. It's a collection of tools that will enable developers to create new services for Bixby.

"The foldable display lays the foundation for a new kind of mobile experience", said Koh Dong-jin, president and CEO of the IT and mobile communications division at Samsung.

The Samsung Developer Conference (SDC) is the place where Samsung shows off the latest software innovations powering its new and upcoming hardware.

Google's head of Android UX, Mr Glen Murphy, who was on stage with Samsung, said Google would work with developers to bring more features to the phone. It also announced its take on the notch, with not one but three notch designs for its future devices - the Infinity U, Infinity V and Infinity O.

Samsung is among a few developers working on foldable phones.

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. It's no exaggeration to say that most Galaxy owners usually launch the app by accident thanks to the ill-placed Bixby button.

Singh then compared his bowling action to being no different to when batsmen reverse sweep deliveries at the crease. But former England captain Michael Vaughan posted saying he saw nothing wrong with delivery.

The announcement means other companies can start building the voice assistant system into their own machines and devices as well. The fruit of developers' labour - dubbed Bixby Capsules - can then be sold as standalone apps in the Bixby Marketplace.

One UI is a "reengineered" design interface for Android that has been built to assist with one-handed operation. This is the same suite of developer tools used by Samsung internally.

Samsung said it would be ready for mass production in the coming months.

During the SDC keynote, Samsung also outlined its commitment to making connected IoT devices work seamlessly together via the new SmartThings app. WWST helps ensure devices and services are fully optimized for the platform, so consumers enjoy the best possible experience.

After years of promising one, Samsung Electronics on Wednesday gave a glimpse of a smartphone that unfolds into a tablet that could give a major jolt to the industry in 2019, the year Galaxy phones will be celebrating their 10th anniversary. The app experience transitions from the smaller display to the larger display as the device unfolds.
