The keynote speech at Samsung's Developer Conference has just finished, and on stage the company finally unveiled the foldable phone we've been hearing about for so long.

"We're already working closely with Samsung on a new device they plan to launch early next year, which you'll hear about later today", said Google vice president of engineering Dave Burke at the Google event Wednesday. It's expected to compete against several other flexible-screen phones.

The device is the size of a tablet computer and features a large 7.3-inch screen, but can fold in on itself, shutting like a book. The company's prototype device also has a screen on one of its outer faces for use when the full-size internal display isn't needed or practical.

Since this is a new form factor, it runs the new OneUI, which will allow users to run three apps at the same time, thanks to the Multi-Active Window concept. But at the same time, what Samsung showed today makes the idea of flexible phones a lot more tolerable than anything we've seen before.
