Huawei wants to release a foldable handset and LG is working on foldable TVs, according to The Verge.

This is the big one. The company today announced the launch of Bixby Capsules, that's what it's calling the features or services that developers create for its assistant. Also, to make the development process easy, the company has announced a new Bixby Developer Studio. "Our goal is to bring meaningful innovation to life and address consumer needs with one breakthrough form factor". For example, users now can have a compact smartphone that unfolds to reveal a larger immersive display for multitasking and viewing content.

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

In addition to reducing onscreen clutter and making navigation more intuitive, this will also be an essential feature for foldable phones. The One UI Beta will be launching in select markets this month. It's no exaggeration to say that most Galaxy owners usually launch the app by accident thanks to the ill-placed Bixby button. But Samsung is evolving it into a scalable intelligence platform to support a set of diverse products and services.

"The foldable display lays the foundation for a new kind of mobile experience".

Eldon Insurance and Leave.EU fined
The fines "could be significantly higher under data protection law if we find misdeeds", she told the Commons digital, culture, media and sport committee.

Samsung is promoting the idea of "share app ideas and share alike"; write an app for a smartphone and modify it using Developer Studio into a home-based app for the Samsung platform, if desired. The fruit of developers' labour - dubbed Bixby Capsules - can then be sold as standalone apps in the Bixby Marketplace.

"But it's smart to open it up to developers early to do different types of experiences".

Samsung has finally opened up Bixby to third-party developers, allowing them to build new experiences and connect their services to Samsung's virtual assistant. These are British English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish, all of which complement the existing US English, Chinese, and Korean.

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. The company famously partnered with Epic Games this year to bring the insanely popular Fortnite to its tablets and smartphones.
