Samsung folding screen, One UI revealed
- Samsung has unveiled a few core specs of its upcoming foldable smartphone (allegedly Galaxy F), including its flexible display and user interface.
- The device’s screen is christened ‘Infinity Flex Display’, and it’s an elastic OLED panel that folds vertically allowing users to view large-screen content without compromising on portability.
- To achieve flexibility, Infinity Flex consists of a unique adhesive, shock absorbent film, ultra thin polariser, flexible layer, and flexible backplane. The panel is also much thinner than Samsung’s current Super AMOLED screen to allow flexibility.
- When open, the display is 7.3-inch in size with 420 dpi. When folded, there’s a secondary 4.58-inch screen – called cover display – on the outside with a 21:9 aspect ratio.
- Accompanying the Infinity Flex will be Samsung’s new One UI, a new skin based on Android that’s designed to working flawlessly with the foldable display. For instance, apps open on the external display will automatically move to the larger display once the hardware unfolds. One UI can have three apps simultaneously open at once on the large display.
