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.

Little-known Chinese technology company Royole Corp first beat South Korean giant Samsung in launching the world's first foldable smartphone - and now early reviews suggest it actually works.

Samsung has finally unveiled the long-rumored foldable smartphone.

Folded in two, it appeared to resemble a thick phone. It can also display three different apps simultaneously.

Samsung said it would be ready for mass production in the coming months.

The main screen of the Samsung foldable comes with a 4.2:3 aspect ratio and the cover a 21:9 aspect ratio.

"They will have to prove that it's more than just a gimmick,"he said".

The experience was reengineered to reduce clutter and distractions, allowing the user to better focus and quickly navigate their phone.

The prototype displays that have been floating around for years will soon make it to actual consumer devices.

"We expect to see foldable products from several Android manufacturers", he added.
