Yesterday, we got a foldable phone. But Samsung's Developer Conference is only half over.

In addition to the very intriguing foldable Infinity Flex Display, the Korean electronics giant gave a big shot in the arm to Bixby, its voice assistant competitor to the likes of Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri . It opened Bixby up to third-party developers (the core audience at its San Francisco gathering), added a developer studio and support for five more languages, showed off new smart TV support and debuted One UI -- a whole new interface for its megapopular Galaxy phone line.

What's that leave for Thursday? Well, if previous developer conferences from Apple , Microsoft , Google and Facebook are a guide, probably some seriously nerdy "in the weeds" discussions on APIs, SDKs and other software development tools. But we'll actually get a couple of celebrity cameos, too: Director Spike Jonze and Tim Sweeney -- the director of Epic Games, the publishers of Fortnite -- are among those scheduled to appear, along with John Hanke, CEO, Niantic (the creators of Pokemon Go ).
