TCL Communication has taken the wraps off two concept devices using new display technology, including a foldable and a rollable.
“With these latest concept devices, TCL has clearly shown that there is still plenty of room for new ideas when it comes to flexible and foldable display technologies, and it’s critical for us to think outside the box and lead with innovation,” said Shane Lee, General Manager, Global Product Center at TCL Communication. “These new form factors leverage display and hinge technologies that already exist entirely within our fully integrated TCL ecosystem, allowing us to reimagine the future of mobile device development with an aggressive research and development program.”
TCL’s rollable uses a flexible AMOLED display that can go from 6.75-inches to 7.8-inches. The device is just 9 mm thick and the display expands with the press of a button.
Some software enhancements that TCL has made include split-screen and multi-tasking to better take advantage of the rollable display.
TCL’s foldable is a tri-fold tablet concept that uses the company’s DragonHinge and ButterflyHinge technologies. The device can go from a 10-inch tablet to a 6.65-inch device with a 20.8:9 aspect ratio with 3K display resolution.
To help achieve a smooth fold, TCL uses dual hinges and that produced a minimal gap. The device also features a 3D holographic finish.
No pricing or availability details have been announced for TCL’s tri-fold tablet concept or rollable device concept as both are still in the works.
TCL’s 10-Series phones are still set to launch later this year with details being announced soon.
