The Five Coolest Things Samsung Announced At SDC 2018 (So Far)

Samsung Electronics CEO and president DJ Koh

Samsung first unveiled a prototype for a foldable phone in 2014, which looks vastly different than the one we saw on Wednesday.

Bixby Developer Studio: This is a collection of tools created to provide an intuitive way for developers and partners to infuse intelligence into more services and devices. On the developer side of things, Samsung says it's giving devs the same full access to Bixby that it does through its new Bixby Developer Studio - claiming it's treating creators like "first-class citizens" compared to competing services.

Although the headline-grabbing announcement from today's Samsung Developer Conference was its new foldable smartphone display, the company also revealed a few updates to its Bixby virtual assistant that make it quite a bit smarter.

Google's head of Android UX, Mr Glen Murphy, who was on stage with Samsung, said Google would work with developers to bring more features to the phone.

Up to three apps can run at the same time on the phone.

The main screen of the Samsung foldable comes with a 4.2:3 aspect ratio and the cover a 21:9 aspect ratio. "They'll have to prove that it's more than just a gimmick", said Mr O'Donnell.

Not alike: I've previously reported on the foldable smartphone rumor. And it has tough and entrenched competition in Siri, Google, Cortana, Alexa in other devices. This is the same suite of developer tools used by Samsung internally. Its minimalstic design keeps the most relevant content on the bottom half of the screen, making it more natural and comfortable for one-handed use, the company said.

During the SDC keynote, Samsung also outlined its commitment to making connected IoT devices work seamlessly together via the new SmartThings app.

Developers will be able to create Bixby Capsules using the Bixby Developer Studio. This will now be supported by a SmartThings Developer Workspace.

After years of promising one, Samsung Electronics on Wednesday gave a glimpse of a smartphone that unfolds into a tablet that could give a major jolt to the industry in 2019, the year Galaxy phones will be celebrating their 10th anniversary.

"Our strategy is to enhance the gaming experience on Galaxy devices, to make them a go-to platform for gaming". "The experience was reengineered to reduce clutter and distractions, allowing the user to better focus and quickly navigate".
