Samsung's foldable phones might not arrive until 2019

  Samsung's foldable phones might not arrive until 2019 If you’re waiting to buy a foldable Samsung phone this year, you might need to hold onto your wallet for a little while longer. Samsung Display’s principal engineer, Kim Tae-woong, says the company is currently focused on bezel-free displays. “Because the bezel-free display currently sells well, we still have enough time to develop foldable display,” said Tae-woong at a Display TechSalon event recently. Samsung now believes it will commercialize foldable phones in 2019, despite initially planning to unveil them as early as 2015 or 2016.

The unremarkably named Interactive Table may not sound like much, but it really is a piece of cool tech. The table lets users check out the features of Samsung Galaxy S8 in a pretty amazing way.

You put the phone on the table, which is essentially a large display, and the table then detects where the phone is through the 12 cameras hidden below the screen. Using a round glass marker, you then get to select which of the features of the new phone you want to experience by simply twisting it.

Samsung's in-house OS is a security nightmare

  Samsung's in-house OS is a security nightmare Samsung's Tizen platform might give the company the technological independence it wouldn't have if it stuck to outside software like Android, but it's apparently a security disaster. A key example is the Tizen Store. While the portal does authenticate to make sure that you're only installing approved apps, there's an exploit that lets you take control before authentication kicks in. Use that and you can send whatever malware you want to a device. Samsung is also inconsistent in its use of encryption, often foregoing that protection at the very moment it's most needed.

The menu is an interactive table which allows users to see which links they have already clicked and visited. Check out the published version: Business Template with Interactive Table Menu. This is pretty awesome .

We're live at Samsung ' s MWC 2017 press conference.

You get to try out the new Iris Scanner, get to know Samsung's Connect feature for smart homes as well as be impressed with the phone's tiny-bezel Infinity Display. Because the phone and the table are in connected via Wi-Fi, the phone also acts as a second screen for you to play with it.

Samsung said the Interactive Table was developed in-house, and it isn't the retired Samsung SUR40 repackaged. It's a pretty fun experience to try and possibly the best demo the company could use for its spiffy new flagship.

The tables will be deployed in ten countries, including Singapore, Australia, Russia, Hong Kong, Dubai, Mexico and Chile and others where its Galaxy Studio experience will be. There's no word on whether the table will appear in the US or UK.
