It was said that it was just an idea and that the new model would not be rushed, which is why many doubted that the device would ever appear in reality.
In April 2021, the Chinese giant TCL presented the concept for its flexible phone – Fold ‘n Roll, which is a model that bends and rolls.
Those interested could see screens that are flexible, and those that can be pulled out or rolled, but we didn’t have models that are both.
Fold ‘n Roll is both a collapsible and flexible model, so the concept immediately attracted the attention of those who are interested in new devices.
However, it was said that it was just an idea and that the new model would not be rushed, which is why many doubted that the device would ever appear in reality.
The phone, whose display starts on the box, bends and unfolds so that it expands to the right – until it reaches the size of a tablet (the screen increases from 17.45 to 25.4 centimeters), still saw the light of day. Those who still do not believe can be convinced if they look at the video from the event DTC 2021, which was held in the Chinese city of Shenzhen.
On December 4, the company unveiled a Fold ‘n Roll that is no longer just a concept, but a real phone that can be held in the hand unfolded and folded. Although the video only lasts 30 seconds, it can be seen that the phone is real, although the interface is not ready yet – the changes on the screen lag behind as the phone changes shape.
In the end, it is noted that this is not a phone that will soon appear on the market, but a demonstration of what TCL can do – turn Fold ‘n Roll into reality.
