News on January 12, according to media reports, TCL launched a scroll screen at CES2021.
It is reported that the screen size of the TCL scroll screen is 6.7 inches, which is suitable for smart phones. The top of the screen can be expanded to 7.8 inches by stretching , changing from a smart phone form to a tablet phone form.
TCL has previously shown a scroll screen mobile phone. The way the screen is opened is very different from traditional mobile phones. There are two electromechanical motors inside the body. After pressing the button, you can hide the remaining screen part inside the body. Pull it out to extend the small screen to the size of a tablet.
Because the scroll screen is completely different from the folding screen, the former does not need to be folded, which avoids the crease problem that the folding screen is prone to.
It is worth noting that the thickness of the TCL scroll screen remains the same before and after the screen is expanded, within 10mm, making it more compact and thinner.
More importantly, TCL claims that the scroll screen can not only be mass-produced and commercialized, but its cost is 20% lower than competing products.
In terms of life, TCL claims that through the enhanced design of the flexible screen, the curling sliding radius of the flexible screen can be as small as R3mm, and the curling sliding life of the sliding mechanism is 100,000 times.
