As the world's first conceptual model of smart phone with roll-up extensible display, it has qualified its latest TCL revelation.

With only 9 mm thick, the notebook reimagines the standard design, with a roll-up AMOLED screen that uses internal motors to extend from 6.75 to 7.8 inches at the press of a button.

This allows a completely new device user experience that includes split screen and TCL custom multitasking user interface improvements. Thanks to a larger shaft and a rolled screen, the device does not have wrinkles or folds that are commonly found in folding AMOLEDs, explained the Chinese manufacturer.

When not in use, the press release continued, an engine-driven sliding panel uses advanced mechanics to hide the flexible screen.

TCL also showed a triple-screen tablet, which according to the same announcement heads a new category of products in development.

This functional prototype uses the company's two hinge technologies, DragonHinge and ButterflyHinge, to fold a 10-inch tablet into a 6.65-inch device with an aspect ratio of 20.8: 9 and a 3K screen resolution, detailed.

The Huizhou-based firm said its product is the first large-screen tablet that takes advantage of the hinges and double folds to achieve this type of design, ensuring a smooth folding in and out with a minimum space, and presents a multidimensional brightness with a holographic 3D finish.

Both products are part of the company's extensive development program that takes advantage of the screen manufacturing experience, which includes almost fifty products.

"With these latest conceptual devices, TCL has clearly demonstrated that there is still plenty of room for new ideas when it comes to flexible and collapsible display technologies, and it is essential for us to think outside the box and lead with innovation," said the general manager from the TCL Communication Global Product Center, Shane Lee.

The executive said that "these new proposals take advantage of the visualization and hinge technologies that our ecosystem already has fully integrated, which allows us to reinvent the future of mobile device development with an aggressive research and development program."

At the moment, according to TCL, there are no details on the production of both devices, less estimates of prices or availability.
