TCL presented by these days a prototype of a
folding smartphone, adding to the proposal of
Samsung (which already sells the Galaxy Fold),
Huawei (which could sell the Mate X in mid-November) and
Motorola (which may present the Razr next month).
The TCL design is unique because it has
double hinge, so it is a phone that folds into three parts. But unlike the
prototype that Xiaomi showed, with a central screen and two fins that fold back, the TCL design is like a Z: the hinges fold the equipment in the opposite direction so that it looks like a chord.
This design makes it thicker than other models, but also allows a larger screen to be displayed,
as CNet reveals; about ten inches (against the 8 inches of the Huawei Mate X or 7.3 inches of the Samsung Galaxy Fold). Or use one of the three parts as a keyboard, placing it perpendicular to the other two.
For now, however, it has no date of arrival on the market or estimated price: it is one of the many designs with which cell phone manufacturers are exploring the world of flexible phones.
Like a Z: this is the TCL prototype of a smartphone that folds into three parts – LA NACION
