Android adds support for flexible displays

The Android platform nowadays can be seen running on multiple devices, not only on smartphones. And naturally, with the push of flexible smartphones, Google is adding support for that form factor and it’s gearing up for the future. No wonder Samsung and Google were working together creating the new One UI for Samsung’s phones.

For now, Android developers are focusing on the two-screen and the one-screen devices as shown in the .gif below. Either way, Android will strive for the so-called continuity so that the content transitions from the folded screen to the unfolded state without interrupting. Watching a video can be one of those things.

The blog post also mentions that more than one manufacturer is looking into creating flexible phones. Aside from Samsung, other makers such as Huawei, LG, Xiaomi, Oppo, Lenovo and Motorola are all said to be working on a version of their own and the new handsets will start pouring as early as next year.
