Samsung's second Android Go phone is the Galaxy J4 Core

Samsung Electronics CEO and president DJ Koh

At first glance, one of the most noticeable improvements with the Galaxy J4 Core compared to the J2 Core is the display.

Samsung has just shown off a camouflaged version of its foldable smartphone after having teased it in concept videos and with prototype displays for several years. It also has a smaller 4.6-inch “cover display”. The device can be opened to reveal a 7.3-inch tablet.

As well as showing off its foldable phone at the Samsung Developer Conference recently, Samsung also used the event to demonstrate an overhaul of its Android interface dubbed One UI, and in the process it might also have shown the colors that the Samsung Galaxy S10 will land in.

The leaker says that the current camera technology that would let Samsung place a camera under the OLED screen is "immature", as not enough light is able to reach the sensor.

The announcement means other companies can start building the voice assistant system into their own machines and devices as well.

Or perhaps the future of foldable displays will look completely different than what we imagine right now.

Dave Burke, vice president of engineering at Google, said at the Android Developer Summit that Google is "enhancing Android to take advantage of this new form factor with as little work as necessary".

While in Canada Samsung devices feature Qualcomm processors, in Europe and Asia the handsets use the company's proprietary Exynos chipset.

China's Huawei Technologies has said it is planning to launch a 5G smartphone with a foldable screen in mid-2019. All of this in less than a decade.
