On Wednesday, Samsung Electronics presented its long-awaited folding phone for the first time at a conference for developers in San Francisco.
According to News.ro, South Korean giant representatives have allowed Android programmers to start working on applications in this device.

Samsung is among the few companies that have announced that folded phones will soon be available.

"We are working on a new device that Samsung plans to launch next year. "Said. Burke said.
The Chinese company, Huawei Technologies, announced plans to open a 5G smartphone with a foldable display in mid-2019.
Both Samsung and Huawei were left behind last week by a Chinese screen maker introducing a foldable phone with a 7.8-inch display at a price of about 1,300 inches. Royole announced that he will start taking orders in late December.
High prices may give up the high demand for these products, and some analysts are skeptical about the high demand for such phones.
Samsung did not provide details about the prices of new phones on Wednesday.
