Twitter user Fold Universe leaked a new video of the 10.1-inch foldable concept from TCL today along with a more detailed picture of it.
TCL has showcased foldables and rollable concept devices for years, but have yet to actually produce one so far. The 10.1-inch foldable we see here is the second concept of a tri-fold foldable tablet phone we’ve seen from TCL.
And what makes this foldable special is that one of the folds are on the lower 1/4 of the display, where this bit becomes a dedicated keyboard while the tablet is set up in portrait mode. A rear kickstand helps it stand up on its own.
Most people would want a kickstand that keeps the tablet upright in landscape mode though. But since this is likely just a new concept from TCL, it’s still interesting to see what they are experimenting with and trialing.
