Leaked TCL Prototype Smartphone With Slide-Out Display
TCL is also developing a new phone with a slide-out display, Today we have some leaked images published by CNET. Unlike other phones that fold in halves like the Motorola Razr or Samsung Galaxy Fold, the images show a phone that looks like to work like an extendable dining table, with a secondary display that slides out from under the phone. According to CNET’s sources, TCL had been preparing to show off the phone at MWC, before the trade show was canceled over coronavirus fears.
The pictures paint a detailed picture of what the device could be, but people are asking more questions now. For starters, when the phone is expanded the screen seems to stretch continuously from one end to the other, which asks the question of where it goes when the phone is unexpanded? If it folds back of the first screen then it’s going to have to bend very sharply in order to fit inside the smartphone-sized housing. The design also implies that half of the phone will be left empty when the phone is expanded since it has to be able to fit while the device is in its compact mode
