TCL, the makers of the well-known BlackBerry devices, has broken the boundaries and seriously raised the bar for mobile phone designing yet again. TCL has shown off a prototype of their upcoming smartphone – without release date or name – that has stunned everyone among the spectators, both from the corporate sector and the public. The new TCL phone 10-inch screen foldable smartphone with two hinges – call that ambitious!
The amazing phone design is something that has been conceived before but never achieved in practice. Upon the launching of the new TCL smartphone, TCL will become the first smartphone makers to record a dual-hinged three-way folding smartphone device. Even though the Chinese electronics giant has hinted about introducing a revolutionary foldable smartphone by the end of 2019, no one expected anything better then what Samsung’s Galaxy Fold. However, it turns out that TCL has beaten the Korean tech giant in this race.
The specular design consists of two hinges that holds and folds the 10-inch screen in a concertina-style. While the screen is originally single, but the dual hinges distributes them into two additional screens side by side. Whenever a user folds each screen, the operations going along succinctly goes back normally into a well-fitted single display. This foldable feature is extremely helpful for those smartphone users who are generally multi-taskers.
However, the state-of-the-art three-way foldable design which TCL has unveiled is just a prototype, so fans and the concerned public should keep eyes and ears open for any further development on this matter. The Chinese tech company has recently launched its very first own-named smartphone, the TCL Plex. However, in an interview with the Digital Trends, TCL has mentioned that they will further talk about foldable smartphones in next year’s Mobile World Congress event.
The craze of experimenting with over-the-edge foldable smartphone designs has been the latest fever-pitch for the technology world. There have been many notable names from the tech world that are taking a plunge into this flow of experimental foldable design trends; the likes of Microsoft, Xiaomi, Samsung, Huawei, LG, and Motorola are just some of the big names. Therefore, if we are to call that 2019 was the year in which foldable phones were officially born, we are definitely not exaggerating.
