TCL wants to disrupt the mobile industry with outstanding smartphone design as they always do. The company had a concept smartphone which would’ve been shown to the entire world during the MWC which was ultimately cancelled due to Coronavirus outbreak.
The new concept presents a smartphone with a slide-out screen which rather than folding, it slides out to become a mid-sized tablet, how amazing that is.
While there isn’t any official name for the device, many are left thinking about what better name the device could be called and considering how interesting that innovation is, that is seriously some improvement to modern technology. What keeps wondering is what happens to the “Slidey” screen when it gets slide back into the device.
Best guess right now is one portion of the flexible display bends or wraps behind the other, but how durable would that be? And how much of crease would it create?
Inability to actually have a physical look at how the device will look and feel in reality is a sad news as the MWC got axed for this year. Meanwhile looking at the render shows some quite complex design and engineering which makes us wonder the durability of the device. At least we saw how the Galaxy Fold didn’t meet up to our expectations last year but then Samsung got it a bit better with the Galaxy Z Flip. Could this first generation device just be the go-to for the utmost innovation of the decade or what?
The credibility of TLC company out of China and even in the mobile department might still be questionable as many of us aren’t really familiar with their product but an unusual device as such could suddenly place them right among top companies leading the global smartphone market. he probability of this device making it to the market is still under question and most of us wonder if that will ever be possible just to think of it.
It definitely is one of the most intriguing ideas of the past couple of years or so, but may face significant challenges in becoming an actual shipping product. Then again, the same could be said of foldables in the past, and now we’re starting to see more and more of those, so let’s be optimistic here.
