As noted on the Verge blog, TCL might be taking a similar strategy like that of Motorola Razr with a screen that forms a teardrop shape into gaps inside the hinge when it closes.
The company will take advantage of their flexible OLED screen to make their own foldable.
However, TCL notes that it is taking it slow when it comes to foldables because of waiting for either software to get better, glass screens to fold, or both.
It’s also experimenting with other form factors like a tri-fold gadget. Which is the size of a very thick phone when closed but opens up into a medium-sized tablet.
The devices will compete directly with Motorolla Razr 2019, Realme X and Oppo reno which also is powered bt the Qualcomm 7 series.
