It also announced its take on the notch, with not one but three notch designs for its future devices - the Infinity U, Infinity V and Infinity O.

"Our goal is to offer developers a robust, scalable and open AI platform that makes it easy for them to launch and evolve the incredible experiences they create for our users", said Kyunghak Hyun, Product Manager of the AI Product Management Group at Samsung.

"They'll have to prove that it's more than just a gimmick", said Mr O'Donnell. The display is being called the Infinity Flex Display. "The experience was reengineered to reduce clutter and distractions, allowing the user to better focus and quickly navigate".

Samsung is now making it faster and easier for developers to connect their devices and services to the SmartThings platform with a new suite of tools in the redesigned SmartThings Developer Workspace.

She said Royole told her the issues were "due to the adhesive used in the engineering samples".

Samsung needs to get the foldable phone right to reverse steep declines in profit and restore some of the cachet its brand has lost to Apple.
