TCL unveiled new phones, notebooks, and tablets during their conference hosted at CES 2022. But the highlight is the presentation of the concept TCL Flex V foldable smartphone. The model was treated under the codename Project Chicago, and now, after being delayed, we finally know it in “flesh and blood”.
The wave of foldable phones is expected to see its biggest growth this year, and the Chinese manufacturer has secured its position with a model similar to the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3, that is, with a vertical fold that resembles classic devices from the 2000s, including its secondary screen housed in the rear camera module.
TCL Flex V Specifications
Talking about its technical details, the TCL Flex V has a possible 6.67-inch OLED screen with FHD+ resolution (1,080 x 2,400 pixels) distributed in a stretched 21:9 aspect ratio. The display has a hole that houses the 44 MP front camera.
The rear cameras deliver good resolution — the main lens is equipped with a 48 MP sensor. There is no information on the function of the secondary 16 MP camera, but it is possible that it uses a wide-angle lens for capturing extensive landscapes.
In terms of hardware, the TCL Flex V is more comparable to the Motorola RAZR 5G as it also uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G, a good-performing but dated mid-range processor, as there are more current models, such as the Snapdragon 778G and 778G Plus. The version shown has 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage.
