Samsung failed to announce a fully working flexible phone, but the company showed that its screen is ready. The South Korean company highlighted an elastic OLED panel that will be available to their future Galaxy device. It has a 7.3-inch viewing area when opened (tablet mode) and will likely split into half (phone mode) when closed. It will be a compact smartphone when closed for sure.

It uses a new protective layer made out of composite polymer that's flexible and tough. Samsung also made a malleable and foldable adhesive to keep all the components securely stuck even when you flex always. Samsung also claimed that it is thinner than other screens out there. The number they gave is 45 percent slimmer than other type of panels.

Samsung also teased that they will have phones with three different notch designs that they will use in the future. They dubbed it as the Infinity-U, Infinity-V, and Infinity-O. The letters corresponds to the shape of the notches. They look tiny compared to the notch of the Pixel 3 XL and the iPhone X and above phones.

But, they have one more screen without a notch, the New Infinity. Most likely, we will see this type of screen on future flagships. It could be the full screen design with no notch. It could just have a hole underneath the screen to house the selfie camera.

Samsung will likely call this as the Under Panel Sensor of the AMOLED screen with Sensor Integrated Technology.

Will we see this on the upcoming S10?
