The first foldable phone is gunning for Samsung — Royole FlexPai

The first foldable phone is gunning for Samsung — Royole FlexPai

There's a scene in the 1993 Jurassic Park film where Dr. Ian Malcolm spells out his objections to a theme park built around dinosaurs brought back to life through the magic of DNA: "Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn't stop to think if they should". It also talks about the U.S. for a foldable display.

But there are problems: The phone is bulky and makes a crunching sound when folded. She added that the plastic display was beginning to lift a little over the hinges, and made an "audible crunching sound" while being folded. "What does a foldable phone provide that current phones do not?" Koh previously told CNBC that it's "time to deliver" on the device after research showed people are very interested.

Samsung's developer conference kicks off today and one of the most compelling rumors floating around is that the company will unveil a foldable phone (as teased by its updated logo).

This is not the first hint from Samsung about a possible sneak peek at the upcoming foldable phone, though. But the device still needs work.

Despite a folding phone from Samsung being rumored every year since 2013-including a Samsung-produced concept video in 2014- it seems like foldable phones are finally ready to become a reality. And without properly optimized apps, anything you do with the FlexPai is likely to remain buggy and inconsistent. It even looks better because of the smaller bezels around the display. Llamas asked of the screens on folding phones.

"If it's bigger, brighter, sharper, now you have my attention", Llamas said.

Samsung wants to fully secure the device before launching it in the market.

Samsung is no longer keeping it a secret and might be riding the wave generated by all the hype around its upcoming foldable phone. After all, what use will such a user experience have without a device to put it on.

But the materials are not supposed to sell you on the phone as much as the fact that the whole thing folds up.

Other specs include a 2.8GHz octa-core Snapdragon chipset, expandable memory and a 3,800mAh battery that can charge rapidly using Royole's proprietary charging technology called Ro Charge.

But if Samsung can create some buzz around the new phones, it would be a welcome salve for its mobile division, which just last week reported quarterly profit tumbling by a third, squeezed by competition with Apple and as Chinese rivals spruce up their mid-range products with features similar to Samsung's.
