TCL reveals rollable, extendable shows at CES 2021
TCL has by no means been shy about showcasing its show ideas at commerce reveals, and this 12 months is not any totally different; the corporate is (just about) displaying off a few these prototypes at CES 2021. Making an allowance for that there’s completely no assure these ideas will ever attain market, they’re nonetheless a enjoyable glimpse at a attainable way forward for show tech. First up is a cellular machine with an AMOLED “rollable” display screen which might lengthen a 6.7-inch show as much as 7.8 inches. TCL says the machine is lower than 10mm thick with a 3mm bend radius.
An identical idea seems in one of many extra unintentionally humorous promotional movies we’ve seen at CES thus far this 12 months. It’s an extendable show idea that unrolls on two sides, like a scroll, or an “I’m Gonna Steal the Declaration of Independence,” which is a technical time period.
TCL says the display screen itself can be thinner at simply 0.18mm thick. The corporate tries to drive residence the space-saving benefits of this idea with a video of a hiker pulling it out of a bag on the path. Sadly, it appears to be like about as genuine as our favourite folding devices of sci-fi do.
TCL does seem to have a working prototype model of this expertise, although it’s smaller and never fairly as robust-looking because the hiker video would recommend. And whereas the corporate says it would convey a foldable / versatile product to market this 12 months, we’d put our cash on a daily ol’ folding telephone — it’s been engaged on one for some time now — relatively than one in all these ideas.
