Now it's just over a couple of months later and we already have Samsung's second Android Go smartphone. The lights on the stage dimmed to deliberately obscure details of the device, and Denison opened it like a book to show a main organic light-emitting diode (OLED) screen - which Samsung has dubbed "Infinity Flex Display" - that measures 7.3 inches diagonally.

Samsung says its connected living strategy is centered around an open IoT ecosystem that "unites the growing number of connected devices on a single platform".

The device could have multiple screens or at least one can run more than one application at a time and since the foldable phone is still work in progress, there may be many variations from now and when the final design is signed off. Samsung first unveiled a prototype for a foldable phone in 2014, which looks vastly different than the one we saw on Wednesday.

The new device is called J4 Core, and it's not much of a huge upgrade from the J2 Core. The experience was reengineered to reduce clutter and distractions, allowing the user to better focus and quickly navigate their phone.


The software input, mainly the operating system to be customized for the flexible display is being worked on by Google and its Android team collaborating with Samsung's own team.

Other companies: Google has started working on foldable devices, too, The Verge reports.

Samsung is likely to fully introduce a device for sale at the Consumer Electronics Show in January or at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February.
