TCL has never been shy about showcasing its display concepts at trade shows, and this year is no different; the company is (virtually) showing off a couple of these prototypes at CES 2021.
Bearing in mind that there’s absolutely no guarantee these concepts will ever reach market, they’re still a fun glimpse at a possible future of display tech.
The company tries to drive home the space-saving advantages of this concept with a video of a hiker pulling it out of a bag on the trail.
And while the company says it will bring a foldable / flexible product to market this year, we’d put our money on a regular ol’ folding phone — it’s been working on one for a while now — rather than one of these concepts.
A similar concept appears in one of the more unintentionally funny promotional videos we’ve seen at CES so far this year.
