Technology TCL’s tri-fold prototype phone folds in thirds like an accordion
Samsung’s cheaper, thinner, and ‘square’ foldable reportedly coming next year
A square deal
Now that we have phones that, companies are starting to imagine phones that fold in thirds. In January, that folds on both sides. This week, CNET got its hands on another . This one starts as a ten-inch tablet and has dual hinges that fold in opposite directions like an accordion.
As CNET points out, it ends up looking something like a Z or a taco holder. You can also fold all of the screens together so you have a form factor that looks more like the phones we're used to, only it's a thick stack of screens.
While it's great to see companies experimenting with new form factors, don't expect this phone to be available any time soon. It doesn't have a name, projected release date or even a working screen. If and when those things fall into place, the tri-fold phone will face challenges that bi-fold phones have run into, mainly how toas the device .
Juve bends the Toro and goes into halfJuventus 2-0 Torino Goals: Douglas Costa (15th), Mandzukic (67th) for Juventus
Faced with a brave but limited Toro, the Old Lady never doubted this Wednesday night and qualified without forcing for the semifinals of coppa italia.
The Bianconeri open the ball thanks to Douglas Costa's wonderful whipped volley, which gives the Allianz Stadium a half empty, but still boiling atmosphere. Very leggy, the Brazilian treats the public some extra candy, but it is Mandzukic who will finally be responsible for completing the injured Toro. The Croatian takes advantage of a deviated pass from Dybala to conclude coldly in the surface, a clever balloon stung.
A goal that drives mad Sinisa Mihajlovic, who believes that the Piedmontese pawn must be canceled for a foul from the action on Acquah. Unfortunately for the Grenats, the referee, after consulting the VAR, still does not flinch. Unsurprisingly, Mihajlovic takes it very badly, relieves the vocal cords by screaming on the body of arbitration and ends up being expelled.
Blessed bread for Juve, who carries it quietly and rushes to the last square of the cup, where she will find Atalanta.
Juventus (4-3-2-1) : Szczęsny - Sturaro, Rugani, Chiellini, Asamoah - Marchisio, Pjanić, Matuidi - Costa Douglas, Dybala, Mandžukić. Coach: Max Allegri.
Torino (4-3-3) : V. Milinkovic-Savic-De Silvestri, N'Koulou, Burdisso, Molinaro-Baselli, Rincon, Acquah-Iago Falque, Niang, Berenguer. Coach: Sinisa Mihajlovic.
Photos of Samsung’s Galaxy Fold 2 just leaked for the first time .
Samsung is widely expected to launch at least one new foldable handset next year, a device that will look less like the original Galaxy Fold and more like the brand new Motorola Razr that was unveiled a few weeks ago. The clamshell foldable was already confirmed at Samsung’s recent developer conference, where we got to see the render above that practically confirmed Samsung’s interest in the new form factor. We didn’t expect to see any images of the actual device at the event, nor did we expect any photos to leak before its launch. That’s because the Galaxy Fold was relatively a well-kept secret when it comes to leaked imagery.
