It had been widely expected that top vendor like Samsung or Huawei would be the first but the California-based start-up beats big tech companies in launching the Royole FlexPai.

At the moment, there is little we know about Samsung's foldable smartphone.

In an attempt to jolt its declining mobile division and further combat competition, Samsung will reportedly debut its Galaxy X foldable smartphone during Wednesday's Developer Conference.

Koh added that the company was "focusing on developing innovations that will be genuinely accepted and liked by consumers" for the foldable phones. The rumor mill suggests that the Samsung Galaxy F will sport a 7.29-inch primary display when it is in tablet mode and a 4.58-inch secondary display when the display is folded and it is used as a smartphone.

The flip phones of the early 2000s may be making a comeback next year, but instead of a small screen and physical keyboard, the new iteration will have a foldable display that opens up to a screen size similar to that of a small tablet. FlexPai by Royole Technologies has become the first phone to debut with the technology. The back of the phone is also plastic, except for the hinge which is made of silicone. "Yes, it feels a bit gimmicky, but the FlexPai does actually deliver on its promise of being the 'first foldable smartphone, '" said Mashable's Karissa Bell. But the actual phone might not be on display during SDC. This is the bezel that holds the cameras - one 20 MP telephoto and a 16 MP wide-angle camera - but it's just impossibly ugly. It is also not clear at the moment that on which Android version will the smartphone run on and how much battery will it pack.

When folded, it will turn into three different displays and the edge screen will notify you about calls or messages. Apparently, Samsung has told a few Korean media outlets that it will unveil the phone's UX at the event. Both the companies want to build a flexible phone which should be useful rather than just the design gimmick.
