Rollable phones could give foldables a run for their money

Although Samsung (or actually Royale) started it last year, it was only really this year that foldable phones truly took off, with the more mature Galaxy Z Flip 2 and the Motorola Razr 5G. But even before the seemingly futuristic smartphone can really take hold of the market, it seems that another unconventional design might be arriving next year.

TCL rollable screen phone shows off another way to expand screens

Foldable phones were mostly created to solve a size problem. People want large, tablet-sized screens but don't want to lose the portability and handiness of a handheld device. You might think that foldable screens from Samsung, LG, Huawei, Motorola, and Royale might be the only answers but TCL is coming up with a rather intriguing alternative. Instead of folding a flexible display, TCL is showing off one that rolls in and out instead, creating what is pretty much the electronic equivalent of paper scrolls.

TCL 10 TabMax, TabMid tablets, Move Time watch, NTXPAPER display debut

It may not be the grand in-person event it has been for decades, but for some companies, IFA week is still an opportune time to flood the world with tech-related news and product announcements. Case in point was the torrent of new Intel-powered computers announced yesterday, including a few flaunting the new Intel Evo mobile-friendly branding. Now TCL is making its own small flood with a bevy of new products, such as two new tablets, a smartwatch, and, curiously, a new kind of e-paper display.

TCL MOVEAUDIO S200 is another AirPods clone for cheap

This morning TCL revealed a pair of "true wireless headphones" called MOVEAUDIO S200. These headphones will cost under 100 (Euro) and look shockingly similar to Apple's AirPods.

TCL 10L Review: Highs and lows of a $249 phone

How much can you expect from a new smartphone like the TCL 10L, when it costs just $249? Even before Apple pushed its flagship iPhones through the four-digit price barrier, most of the attention was being paid to the high end of the device world: that, after all, is where the juiciest, most bleeding-edge tech resides.

TCL showed me its foldable phone prototypes – now I’m excited

A double-folding 10-inch tablet, a rollable smartphone that slides out to roughly double in screen size, and a wallet-like clamshell that closes with no gap: TCL is bringing its foldable concepts out to play, and it's clear the company has been busy. First teased at CES 2020 in January, the foldables are the handiwork of TCL's phone and display divisions, channeling some of the vertical-integration strategy that has proved so successful for Samsung.

Leaked TCL expandable screen phone has our attention: Here’s why

Leaked TCL expandable screen phone has our attention: Here’s why

Today a leak of a TCL smartphone prototype shows a bit of what was apparently going to appear at MWC 2020. That's the tech conference that generally happens every year around this time, but was cancelled this year due to concerns over nCoV-2019 / COVID-19 (AKA novel coronavirus). The device you see here was leaked from what CNET's Jessica Dolcourt describes as a "trusted source" - aka this isn't just some fan-made device based on a concept, it's quite likely from a source within TCL (or a TCL-adjacent group).
