The device could have multiple screens or at least one can run more than one application at a time and since the foldable phone is still work in progress, there may be many variations from now and when the final design is signed off.

Samsung revealed - or semi-revealed - their new prototype handset at their Developers' Conference in San Francisco.

Analyst Bob O'Donnell with Technalysis Research said while the bendable screen provided a wow factor, shoppers may not like the thickness of the folded phone or its price tag.

Samsung has been leaking information to the media about its foldable Infinity Flex Display smartphone for weeks, and the SDC is where the company made a decision to show it for the first time.

The three new notched displays should be heading to new devices by 2019 and beyond.

Bixby started as a practical way to use voice to interact with the phone.

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

Reporters at the American technology network The Verge, and digital media website Mashable, were among those to get their hands on Royole's FlexPai device at the event in San Francisco.

The device will be called the "Infinity Flex Display".

Samsung is also adding five additional languages to Bixby in the coming months - such as British English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.
