New phone concept from TCL

Not only is this concept phone really pretty, the screen unrolls as a scroll.

This is how I envisaged such technology, to roll out like a scroll. Probably too many sci-fi books and films growing up.

I imagined it the same way except I’ve thought it would roll up into a tube. It all sounds pretty far fetched, but then, this the future after all :wink:

This is what many envisioned, whether it was the LCD or phone manufacturer.

Further to that, we’re now at the point where we can have amazing screens on small devices and paper thin form factors.

I’d read from other sources that the folding action is performed by an internal motor, I wonder if it can be manually unfurled as well? If it can’t be manually actuated I don’t think it’ll be very practical in the real world.
