Changing tack: Samsung to reveal some features of foldable phone this week”

These new names include the Samsung Infinity Flex, the Samsung Infinity O and Samsung Infinity U, these new trademarks were recently filed with the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

The upcoming foldable smartphone from Samsung will likely run Android operating system. The side edge where the hinge is can display notifications much like a typical smartphone notification bar, as well as manage calls, messages and "other notices that may disturb the primary and secondary screen usage". We are expecting it to either be powered by a Samsung Exynos processor of a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. Many are taking that as a not-so-subtle hint that the Korean tech giant is planning to unveil the long-awaited foldable phone at its annual developer conference, which takes place November 7-8 in San Francisco. The only thing we can really glean from the image is that the fold is a rather generous curve, so that may be an indication of the finished product's aesthetic. Further, it could cost a fortune as rumours have it that it may be priced at almost $1,500 which roughly translates to over Rs 1 lakh.

FlexPai would "subvert people's perception of traditional smart phones", functioning as a portable device and a high-definition large screen tablet, with the capability to support dual-screen use.

The company, however, has already lost the race for the world's first commercial foldable phone.

The flip phones of the early 2000s may be making a comeback next year, but instead of a small screen and physical keyboard, the new iteration will have a foldable display that opens up to a screen size similar to that of a small tablet. It is the first foldable phone to come with a flexible display.

China's Huawei Technologies Co Ltd has also said it is planning to launch a 5G smartphone with a foldable screen in mid-2019.
