TCL’s big plan pairs foldable phones with a familiar playbook

Rollable, foldable, flexible phones and tablets aren't going to catapult TCL into the number one smartphone spot any time soon, but that doesn't mean the company's ambitions aren't that way inclined. As it pulls back the curtain on just three of a whole portfolio of next-generation concepts, TCL is throwing down the gauntlet to jaded mobile mainstays... and it's borrowing a familiar playbook to do it.

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.

TCL foldable phone prototype dares to dream big with two folds

TCL foldable phone prototype dares to dream big with two folds

As much as foldable phones are a hot topic, they're also almost impossible to get perfect. Even without considering the fragility of the foldable screens themselves, two (or three) of the existing implementations have their respective drawbacks, like the Galaxy Fold's need for a smaller external screen or both its and the Huawei Mate X's square-ish unfolded shape. TCL is aiming to solve exactly those problems by adding one more hinge that could, of course, also be one more point for failure.
