One of the conundrums smartphone designers were faced with was how to enlargen screen size without making the devices too bulky. Foldable phones like the Galaxy Z Flip and Motorola Razr aren’t the only ways for mobile handsets to double their “real estate” this year.
According to an exclusive piece by CNET, TCL is working on a phone that has a slide-out screen instead of one you can bend in half. Based on images that CNET obtained, it has a screen that you pull out from what looks like a standard phone, which then turns it into a tablet.
As CNET reports, citing a trusted source, the expandable phone is a device journalists would have seen at Mobile World Congress this month. The world’s largest mobile show was cancelled in response to health concerns regarding the global spread of coronavirus.
