TCL Is Reportedly Working On A Phone With Slide-Out Display

TCL is reportedly working on a slide-out display. The whole idea here is to offer more real estate for a screen without using the folding form factor

TCL is reportedly working on a slide-out display. The whole idea here is to offer more real estate for a screen without using the folding form factor of the Galaxy Fold or the Motorola Razr.

TCL imagines a second display extended from underneath the first. According to a reliable source, the company had planned to showcase the phone at MWC before the event was canceled for fear of the Coronavirus.

The idea seems exciting but it raises lots of questions. The first is when the phone is expanded, the screen will cover edge to edge, but where does it go when the phone is unexpanded? Another one is whether half of the screen will be left empty when the phone is in its extended mode.

While it seems like if the foldable phone is ready to be showcased at MWC, it is close to being released, things are not that simple. TCL has shown foldable smartphones at a few events already and so far, we have not seen it releasing any to the market.

Last year, in the MWC event, the company also brought a foldable phone. However, it was so fragile that even the company’s own staff was not allowed to touch it.

Fast forward to CES this year, the phone is finally ready to be touched, but TCL still said that it would not launch the product to the market any time soon.

Whatever the situation, this shows that companies are still experimenting with a new form factor for future smartphones. So far we have had a tablet folds into the size of a smartphone, a phone that can fold to be smaller, and those that fold more than once.
