Leak: TCL’s new phone turns into a tablet without folding

We’re living in a new era for phone design. We’ve seen phones with bendable displays that fold horizontally and vertically, folding phones with dual screens, and phones with screens hidden on their backside. But I can’t for the life of me figure out how this TCL concept phone – leak courtesy of CNET –  is able to expand to a normal size to an honest-to-goodness tablet. Unlike the myriad of folding phones we’ve seen so far, this TCL concept actually has an extendable screen. CNET‘s Jessica Delaco...

TCL is working on an expandable phone with a ‘scroll-style’ sliding display

These images that were leaked to CNET show that TCL could have possibly unveiled the most interesting phone of the year in a week. You’re looking at the world’s first phone with a sliding/scrolling flexible display courtesy TCL, which they would debut at the Mobile World Congress event in Barcelona.

TCL concept phone with slide-out screen press images surface

With more and more phones coming with foldable displays, both along the horizontal and vertical axis, TCL has supposedly gone another route and built a concept phone that incorporates a slide-out display instead. The idea behind the design is to have a tablet experience on a regular phone once the screen is pulled out. TCL was initially planning to showcase a working prototype of the concept device during MWC 2020. But since the show was cancelled after the Coronavirus outbreak, TCL may h...

Images of TCL’s slide-out display smartphone surface in wake of MWC cancellation

This morning brought a look at some of what we’re missing at this year’s Mobile World Congress. The show may have been called off on account of coronavirus concerns, but the news goes on. We knew that TCL was planning to show off a number of “alternative” smartphone form factors, and one just showed up on CNET. The device presents a promising take on the world of expandable screens, with a kind of slide out display that expands the standard smartphone into something more akin to a tablet. ...

TCL Came Out of Nowhere To Capture the US TV Market. Up Next: Cheap Phones.

After capturing the U.S. television market with aggressively priced Roku TVs, China's TCL wants to replicate that success with inexpensive phones, IoT devices and connected appliances -- and in the process, turn its still relatively unknown brand into a household name.
