TCL reveals prototype rollable display smartphone and tablet at CES 2021

TCL confirmed that it plans to reveal its first official rollable/foldable product later this year

Alongside new TVs, smartphones and wearables, tech giant TCL is showing off its new rollable display concepts at CES 2021.

One of the concepts is a smartphone that expands upward, and the other is a tablet that expands outward.

In the compact form, the smartphone offers a 6.7-inch display with a square-like aspect ratio. When stretched, it reveals a 7.8-display with a more standard, but taller aspect ratio. Users will be able to expand the display with the tap of their finger. Additionally, TCL says its display technology has a sliding life of 100,000 times.

The other rollable tech can be expanded with its “Printed OLED” display and rolls up like a papyrus scroll. TCL says that the 17-inch tablet is 0.18mm thick and that the display is made with high-precision inkjet printing technology, which costs 20 percent less than traditional display technologies.

While these are only concept devices, TCL confirms that it plans to reveal its first official rollable/foldable product later this year.

It’s worth noting TCL isn’t the only phone-maker that has unveiled a rollable display at CES 2021. South Korean tech giant LG has unveiled a concept rollable handset that will join its Explorer Project alongside the LG Wing.

TCL’s rollable smartphone looks pretty cool, and I hope that the company eventually decides to release it to regular consumers.
