During the presentation, Samsung vice president of mobile marketing Justin Denison revealed that the smartphone will operate as both a tablet and mobile by using a new technology called Infinity Flex Display.
“The Infinity Flex Display represents an entirely new mobile platform,” Denison said.
“We’ve been living in a world where the size of your screen can only be as large as the device itself. We’ve added a new dimension to help you browse, watch and multitask like never before.”
The Infinity Flex Display will allow the user to fold and unfold the device without any damage occurring to the screen.
“When it’s open, it’s a tablet, offering a big-screen experience,” Denison said.
“When it’s closed, it’s a phone that fits neatly inside your pocket.”
