South Korea's electronics company Samsung Electronics has featured a drop-down screen that allows the smartphone to turn into tablet, defining the company as the future of mobile devices.
On Wednesday, San Francisco's senior vice president, Jastin Denison, unveiled the collapsed smartphone prototype at the upcoming Samsung press conference, pointing out that the company would be ready to start mass production of these monitors in the coming months.
Denison did not give any information as to when a consumer could reach a Samsung foldable smartphone.
"This screen is the backbone of the smartphone of tomorrow when it's open, it's a tablet that offers a great screen experience. When it's closed, it's a phone that can be put in your pocket," Denison said.
Meanwhile, at the beginning of this week, Californian Royole announced it will offer the world's first commercially available smartphone. The FlexPai smartphone is available for orders starting at $ 1,381 (€ 1,147).
