At the TCL 20L unveiling event, the company ended up with a big surprise: a new concept phone with a flexible screen that is both foldable and rollable. It is very appropriately referred to as the TCL Fold N ‘Roll. We are in a new era of mobile devices with flexible screens.
Judging from the images we saw, the Fold N ‘Roll looks like a large folding device, similar to the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 that folds flat to display a phablet screen. But one of the sides scrolls to expand the inner screen even further, which could be the size of a typical tablet screen – and almost certainly the largest phone screen ever made.
The TCL Rollable is coming later this year or 2022, TCL told TechRadar. Hence, the Fold N ‘Roll is just another model in TCL’s growing catalog of concept phones, pushing the boundaries of what phones can do. It’s always possible that the company will at some point transform this idea into a consumer product (as it did with the TCL Rollable), but for now, that’s only one possibility.
