Mr Justin Denison, a senior vice-president of mobile product marketing, on Wednesday showed a prototype with a screen that he said measured 18.5cm diagonally. The display showed a tablet that folds into a device that has a cover-display.

Samsung Electronics has unveiled its much-anticipated foldable phone in San Francisco, urging Android developers to start writing apps for it. Samsung is looking to bring similar experiences to Bixby.

"The progress made to Bixby and SmartThings opens a new chapter where third party products and services can be integrated to the AI and IoT platforms at scale", Samsung's mobile president DJ Koh explained during his keynote.

The announcement means other companies can start building the voice assistant system into their own machines and devices as well. But Samsung is evolving it into a scalable intelligence platform to support a set of diverse products and services.

"Infinity Flex Display will operate on an entirely new mobile experience and form factor", Samsung said.

Bixby Capsules: These are containers of sorts for features or services created for Bixby by the developer community and made easily accessible to consumers through Bixby Marketplace.

In addition to reducing onscreen clutter and making navigation more intuitive, this will also be an essential feature for foldable phones. This is the same suite of developer tools used by Samsung internally.

Moving on to one of the more immediate benefits for users across the globe, Samsung has confirmed that its assistant will gain support for five new languages within the "coming months". "They'll have to prove that it's more than just a gimmick", said Mr O'Donnell. These enhanced tools include SmartThings Cloud Connector, SmartThings Device Kit and SmartThings Hub Connector.

Additionally, the upgraded Works with SmartThings (WWST) certification program gives developers direct access to SmartThings experts and resources, Samsung said.

One UI is a "reengineered" design interface for Android that has been built to assist with one-handed operation.

Samsung has finally unveiled the long-rumored foldable smartphone. For example, users now can have a compact smartphone that unfolds to reveal a larger immersive display for multitasking and viewing content. The Infinity O display, meanwhile, sits offset to the left side of the screen. 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.
