Google announced support for a variety of new Android gadgets for app developers, including the creation of new categories for support for folded devices, at the top of developers last week.
After years of temptation and imagination, finally, it seems that the folding screen smartphones are on the market. Google dev announcements have followed the announcement made by Samsung at a tablet/tablet prototype builder conference with Infinity Flex Display.
Android devices will use new display technology, which literally consists of variations and jokes, “said Stephanie Cuthbertson, product management director at Google. The technology is based on two screen design variants: dual screen devices and single-screen devices.
However, the new device will look like a folded mobile phone. They will have pockets or wallets. Once opened, they will display the continuity of the screen smoothly. For example, when the device appears with an active image in use, the image will switch to a larger screen without interruption.
“Official support from the Android development team means that fold-out phones will be taken seriously as new device types,” said Brandon Ackroyd, customer information manager for Tiger Mobiles.
Market value unknown
Consumer interest in proprietary folding equipment is still unknown. It can be outside if they build it, no one will come.
When supporting the new Google developers, no need to think about it as a future product.
Now, he told about LinuxInsider, However, what I see is proof of the concept of this type of folding screen technology. And I think it will be a new generation worn across your wrists.
Charles King, a leading analyst at Pund-IT, may succeed in technology transition from reality to reality.
“In many ways, smartphone users are the largest laboratory mice community,” he told LinuxInsider.
It does not take long for large smartphones that some suppliers find known as “phablets”, he said, “but now, the more important factors dominate the high-end market.
Folders can capture people who are tired of dragging handsets and novels. The user also wants a big screen for the media
“It is interesting to see that this will happen, or if they only follow the designs they know,” King said.
Rob Webber, Chief Executive Officer of MoneySavingPro, explains, with current sources, producers have an interest in making the foldable display attractive to consumers.
Smartphone folded with a futuristic look is always a concept of dreams, he says.
“Smartphones have changed dramatically since they were created, especially their screens,” Webber told LinuxInsider. users.
“We are now at a stage where the edge-to-edge exhibition is the norm, and some may say that the folding screen is just below the stairs,” he said.
However, new technology may be an easy sign, add Webber. Many obstacles should be addressed before technology growth. The key to folding a mobile device is the integration of successful hardware and software, which takes time for the manufacturer to be perfect.
Costs may be a problem. With the price of a new smartphone rising, if the foldable device is much more expensive, they can only attract a special market, Webber explains.
“Indeed, I think we are in an exciting phase that marks the beginning of a new battle between the builders and the very beginning of a very flexible future,” he said.
Potential Exploit and Failure
Money is not the only cost factor for consumers when the folding screen is complete. Mike Banic, vice president of marketing at Vectra, warned Mike Banic by his side.
The number of web searches performed on mobile devices continues to grow. New mobile technology that makes mobile device creation and information usage are easier means an attacker will take advantage of this trend, he told LinuxInsider.
In addition, the number of mobile shortcomings in Android apps, primarily due to open intrinsic sources and suspicious security from third-party app stores, Banic said.
Google Dev Support Summary
Google’s plan to bring more Android developers to app developers is part of an ongoing program. Announcement from Dev Summit suggests that companies have decided to take aggressive approaches.
New features will be released by some developers who are considered “partners”. Then it will be easier to achieve everything.
“This is a strong ad group that most Android developers receive,” King Pund-IT said. “When the smartphone market is growing, they cannot do anything else.”
• Language updates for Kotlin programs
Kotlin is not a language developed by Google, but a language that supports developers. Last week, JetBrains released the latest version of Kotlin 1.3, bringing new language features, APIs, bug fixes and performance improvements.
It has become the fastest growing language, in terms of contributing to GitHub, and has been chosen as the second most expensive language on Stack Overflow.
In a Google survey, more developers use Kotlin, their greater satisfaction, according to Google Cuthbertson.
• Jetpack Android
Google announced a new Jetpack library, next-generation tools, and Android APIs to speed up the development of Android apps. It contains two libraries of new architectural components: Navigation and Work Managers, which will transition to beta this month.
The Navigation Archive component provides an easy way to apply the principles of Android navigation in one app. In addition, the new navigation editor Android Studio creates and manages navigational architecture.
It removes the boiler from navigation while adding the atomic navigation operation with a simpler and more animated transition. WorkManager maximizes the effectiveness of background work by selecting the most suitable solution based on application status and device API.
Google moves Android tablets into a public search experiment. Slice is a new way to bring users to the app. It works like a mini-excerpt from an app that controls content and actions.
“This new concept allows Android apps to move related parts and features from their applications to other areas, like Google Search,” said Ackroyd Tiger Mobiles.
By loading a small part of the app directly from the search results, users can get their native app experience near without actually opening the app, he said. For example, if you’re on Google “What’s the road to Tesla?” and you have installed stock apps, this app will use “slice” to give you information.
Google announced the concept of Slice with Android 9 Pie. This new paradigm allows the app to release relevant components and functions in a natural area, such as Google Search.
This month, Google will make Slice available as part of a public advance access program with its partners. Google also starts experiments with the Search app to show different pieces, if any.
• Android Studio
Android Studio, Google’s official EDI for Android development, focuses on productivity, speed, quality, and standards.
Google launched Android Studio 3.3 beta 3 weeks ago. Future broadcasts will give strong emphasis on quality and fundamentals. Google also announced the development of Android Studio on Chrome OS early next year.
• Android app collection and dynamic features
Android App Bundle is a new publishing format that only meets the source code and requirements for running applications on their particular device. This reduced the size of the app with an average of 35 to 40% of storage compared to the global APK.
Application sets now support uncompressed native libraries. Without additional development requirements, application packages now allow applications to use native libraries to download an average of 8% less disk and 16% less disk on M + devices.
• Integrated update API
Google provides devs checks to ensure that users are running the most recent version of the application. Application API updates provide developers with two options.
The first is a full-screen experience for important updates when you expect users to instantly apply updates.
The second option is the modified update. This allows the user to continue to the version installed when downloading the update. Developers can use it to make sure users have the latest version, as applications can be pushed to be installed in the background using the auto-update feature.
