Foldable phones are yesterday’s news. TCL had two new prototypes to show off: a trifold foldable that can unfold from a 6.55-inch phone into a 10-inch tablet, and a very early concept for its sliding, rollable phone that had leaked back in February.

  • I just love the way that piss all over the foldable phones the are currently on the market. Bad move. The sales of the foldables currently on the market will determine if there even be a "foldable computer market". Your shock value was a dud.

  • That Tri-Fold concept is pretty dope once fully opened, but man is it thick when closed. And if price points of what's out there now gives us a good idea as what to expect.. Then we're looking at about $3k for that one. Seems like they charge $1k per screen for some reason... Oh wait it's because they can..

  • Combine a Mate Xs style hinge for one side and a Galaxy Fold style for the other and you got a winner, since the combination would lead to a device only as thick as the Fold (or a bit more) but which then folds out even BIGGER!

  • It's not a Tri-Fold. It only has 2 hinges aka only folds in 2 areas which makes it a Dual-fold. To call this a Tri-Fold would be to call the Galaxy Fold, Huawei Mate X/Xs, Galaxy Z Flip a Dual-Fold phone when they only have 1 hinge. Makes no sense.
