The Samsung Developer Conference (SDC) is the place where Samsung shows off the latest software innovations powering its new and upcoming hardware.

"The foldable display lays the foundation for a new kind of mobile experience", said Koh Dong-jin, president and CEO of the IT and mobile communications division at Samsung.

"They will have to prove that it's more than just a gimmick,"he said". "The progress made to Bixby and SmartThings opens a new chapter where third-party products and services can be integrated to the AI and IoT platforms at scale. For developers to be able to integrate it with all their apps, that gives me a lot of confidence".

One UI is a "reengineered" design interface for Android that has been built to assist with one-handed operation.

Bixby Marketplace: The Bixby platform will allow developers to adapt their capsules from mobile phones and televisions to home appliances and other products across the Samsung ecosystem. For example, users now can have a compact smartphone that unfolds to reveal a larger immersive display for multitasking and viewing content.

Humphries had eight catches for 82 yards and two touchdowns, while Howard hauled in four catches for 53 yards and two more scores. If Fitzpatrick can beat the Panthers today on the road then he'll likely remain the starter for the foreseeable future.


The bigger screen can split into three active areas at once, meaning three apps can run at the same time. This is the same suite of developer tools used by Samsung internally.

One thing worth noting is that these individual capsules will not be immediately present on Bixby-enabled smartphones. The company famously partnered with Epic Games this year to bring the insanely popular Fortnite to its tablets and smartphones. WWST helps ensure devices and services are fully optimized for the platform, so consumers enjoy the best possible experience. "That is why we have collaborated with major game developers, like Epic Games", Thomas Ko, global head of service innovations explained.

Moving on to one of the more immediate benefits for users across the globe, Samsung has confirmed that its assistant will gain support for five new languages within the "coming months". Expect more announcements to come.

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". "We are excited to work with developers on this new platform to create new value for our customers". This will now be supported by a SmartThings Developer Workspace.
