Samsung also recounted its contribution and innovation to the mobile phone designs over the years, starting from the AMOLED Display launched in 2010, the larger than life (read usual) 5.3″ displays launched as part of Galaxy series in 2011, and several other innovations.

It culminated in the reveal of Infinity Flex Display, its first foldable phone that works like a compact smartphone and unfolds to reveal a large display for multitasking and viewing content.

The Infinity Flex Display was launched by Justin Denison, Samsung’s SVP of Mobile Product Marketing.
