TCL's tri-folding tablet shows up online via a new leak
TCL has never shied away from experimenting with malleable screens. Its rollable smartphone prototype made quite the splash back at CES 2021. The company has since experimented with all kinds of screens. We now have our first look at what appears to be the tri-fold device that TCL talked about last year. We can expect TCL to tell is more about it at MWC 2021.
Twitter user Fold Universe posted a short video of what could be TCL's upcoming foldable smartphone/tablet called the TCL 10.1" Double Foldable. It looks like your everyday tablet, but it can fold along two separate axes. A portion of the lower half of the screen can be folded to act as a keyboard. One can get a more realistic keyboard feel via the keyboard template that sits at the back of the said screen.
The TCL 10.1" Double Foldable tablet also folds along its central axis, like several other Samsung and Huawei alternatives. It also has a second screen at the back and a stand that helps you steady it on a working surface. Samsung, LG and ZTE have toyed with the idea of making a tri-folding tablet, but it appears that TCL beat them to the punch by being the first to manufacture one.
