TCL is developing a handset with a 6.8-inch screen that can be converted into a 10-inch tablet.



TCL's 'DragonHinge' technology will be included in the new smartphone, which features an extendable display screen that can transform a 6.87-inch handset into an 8.85-inch phablet or a 10-inch tablet.


Foldable phones are still an innovation in the mobile industry; only a few firms, such as Samsung and Motorola, have been able to successfully market foldable phones. TCL has been experimenting with the technology and has now teased a prototype computer. In reality, the company is taking the technology one step further by offering three separate form factors in one unit. The firm is developing a smartphone with both foldable and rollable displays.


TCL will use the latest technologies to offer a big-screen display in a small package. A trailer from the company reveals that a 6.87-inch smartphone can be expanded to 10-inch size.


TCL's 'DragonHinge' technology will be included in the new smartphone, which features an extendable display screen that can transform a 6.87-inch handset into an 8.85-inch phablet or a 10-inch tablet. The phone first flips open to reveal a phablet-like panel, and then expands the rolled-in screen to reveal an even larger screen that is equivalent to a smartphone.


The 'DragonHinge' is a three-part technology that was unveiled at IFA 2019 in Berlin. The hinge can be used in both tablets and smartphones. It allows the screen to fold in any direction from 0 to 180 degrees. TCL produced a foldable AMOLED display for it. The hinge is framed by a flexible metal joint.


TCL is not planning to release this product commercially anytime soon, but it is expected to release a foldable glass smartphone before the end of the year.
