Chinese electronics firm TCL showed off a new 10" screen that fits in your pocket. The company created a prototype of a 6.65-inch phone with a 10-inch 3K resolution screen with a 20.8:9 aspect ratio. Engadget got to see a mockup and a video of the functional device, which is in China:
I got to check out the tri-fold tablet and a mock up of the extendable, which did not have a working screen. The former is a 10-inch 3K screen that folds twice in a Z-shaped configuration to become a 6.65-inch phone with a 20.8:9 aspect ratio. There are two hinges beneath the display -- one folds outward and the other folds inward so you're sort of getting a Galaxy Fold and a Huawei Mate X stuck together. When it's folded, the tri-fold prototype is incredibly thick. We called the Galaxy S20 Ultra "thicc" in our review -- the tri-fold as a phone is phat. It's about two-and-a-half S20 Ultras thick!
Overall, the concept still needs quite a bit of work, but it's an interesting look at what sort of devices will be possible in the near-future.
