Samsung presents its flexible Infinity Flex Display display



SAN FRANCISCO (Expansion) – Samsung presented Wednesday the concept with a flexible screen phone called Infinity Flex Display.
The device, when used, acts as a 7.3-inch tablet, but when closed, it can function as if it were a phone, with the ability to maintain the continuity of the applications and the actions that the user did, even with up to three apps simultaneously without having to switch from one to another.
The concept will be under construction in the coming months, "said Justin Denison, senior vice president of mobile products at Samsung Electronics, during his development conference in San Francisco.
Samsung executive said the device could bend and develop without degradation, even after thousands of times to repeat the movement. Therefore, they used a flexible adhesive and reduced the screen thickness by 45%.
The device has been developed in collaboration with Google to customize the use of Android in it, and from this moment, developers will be allowed to participate.

AND UI

The company also presented improvements in the experience of using its devices through the One UI interface concept, which will work with the Infinity Flex Display device.

On the phones, the interface was changed so that the things normally done with this device are made in different parts of the screen that are easy to reach by hand. That is, the top of smartphones are the areas to see, while in the center and down, the areas are interacting.

These changes can be experienced by a beta in November only in the United States, Germany and South Korea. Worldwide, these improvements will reach the latest Samsung phones in January 2019.

A smarter Bixby

In anticipation of an increase in the use of smart assistants, Samsung puts its efforts to improve, Bixby, to manage Amazon's Alexa, Google Assistant, or Apple's Siri.

During the developer conference, Eui-Suk Chung, EVP, the software manager and artificial intelligence of Samsung introduced changes in the now intelligent assistant of the company, Bixby, to make it a scalable artificial intelligence platform.

In that sense, Bixby will reach more business devices like TVs, refrigerators or tablets, as well as third-party equipment. The now artificial intelligence platform opens for the first time to developers who give them the same tools that the Samsung team uses through its Developer Studio, apart from that, it will now speak five new languages ​​(British English, Spanish from Spanish, Italian, German and French).

In the near future, Samsung will present a marketplace around Bixby, enabling developers who work with this platform to generate revenue.

"We think Bixby will change the way people use technology. Bixby users do not need to know how to do things but what they want to do, and Bixby will do it for them," said Eui-Suk Chung during the conference.

Developers will now be able to make "capsules" under the Bixby Capsules program, through which they will add skills or features to Bixby, just like smart assistants from Amazon and Google are doing now , for other equipment, including Samsung Galaxy Home speakers, featured at the South Korean company unpacked event in August 2018, or generates voice-driven applications by partners such as Netflix, Hulu, HBO Now, or Spotify for the branded TV segment.

At present, Bixby, with only two years of existence, has approximately 7% of the US market according to figures from the Business Insider Intelligence Unit until May 2018. According to data from the consultant company Statista, by 2020, Google Assistant will be the market leader with 43% of this , followed by Amazon's Alexa by 34%.
