The device features a cover display that acts as a phone along with a main 7.3-inch tablet display.

Also on November 7, Google announced Android support for this new foldable smartphone form factor, so the starting software support is in place and is expected to continue over time.

"Yes, it feels a bit gimmicky, but the FlexPai does actually deliver on its promise of being the "first foldable smartphone", Mashable's reporter Karissa Bell said.

The bigger screen can split into three active areas at once, meaning three apps can run at the same time.

While in Canada Samsung devices feature Qualcomm processors, in Europe and Asia the handsets use the company's proprietary Exynos chipset.

"As Samsung's ecosystem of devices continues to grow, it creates more points of contact not just for Bixby, but for a growing number of third-party services as well". Others, like Xioami, Lenovo and LG are reported to be at different stages of developing their own versions of foldable smartphones or smartphones with flexible displays. The company unveiled a foldable Android smartphone with a 7.8-inch screen. These are first generation devices but imagine some years from now where physical ports have been removed, driving electronics significantly reduced in size, and batteries perhaps flexible, too.

Bixby started as a practical way to use voice to interact with the phone.

Samsung is also adding five additional languages to Bixby in the coming months - such as British English, French, German, Italian and Spanish. "Developers have more ways to reach users, and users get more opportunities to make the majority", Kyunghak said.

Samsung is now making it faster and easier for developers to connect their devices and services to the SmartThings platform with a new suite of tools in the redesigned SmartThings Developer Workspace. To facilitate multitasking, Samsung described at the event a new, intuitive interface design called One UI to be used with the Infinity Flex Display. "The experience was reengineered to reduce clutter and distractions, allowing the user to better focus and quickly navigate".
