In addition, users can browse, watch, connect and multitask without losing a beat, simultaneously using three active apps on the larger display.

"Our goal is to offer developers a robust, scalable and open AI platform that makes it easy for them to launch and evolve the wonderful experiences they create for our users", said Kyunghak Hyun, Product Manager of the AI Product Management Group at Samsung.

With lights on the stage dimmed, Justin Denison, a senior vice president of mobile product marketing, gives a glimpse of Samsung's first foldable mobile device at a developers conference in San Francisco Wednesday.

Samsungs upcoming device features a 7.3-inch 1536x2152-pixel “Infinity Flex” OLED display when it is open. 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.

According to Samsung Exynos' Twitter page, the company plans to show off the new Exynos processor on November 14th.

The new device is called J4 Core, and it's not much of a huge upgrade from the J2 Core. Samsung released its first Android Go phone earlier this year in the form of the Galaxy J2 Core, and just a few months later, we have another entry with the J4 Core.

Royole said it would start filling orders in late December.

Samsung also used the developers conference to announce it would begin letting app developers use Bixby, its artificial-intelligence platform for Samsung's smartphones and home appliances. Some have even teased the images of these devices for whatever it is worth.

Reporters at the American technology network The Verge, and digital media website Mashable, were among those to get their hands on Royole's FlexPai device at the event in San Francisco.
