This feature allows the device transferred from one mode to another much more smoothly than had been. One example involved a Google Maps screen appearing on the Fold’s smaller front display and then expanding to a larger view when the handset was opened following a one-second pause.
Samsung worked with Google and the Android developer community to tailor apps like WhatsApp and Microsoft Office, YouTube.
The foldable phone is a master of multitasking. The interior screen (tablet like screen) is big enough that it can be used for three-app multitasking. You can watch a video, chat about it, and browse options on the web all at the same time. Samsung showed this off with YouTube running on the left, a WhatsApp chat window at the top right, and a web browser at the bottom right.
