TCL introduces a clamshell smartphone with a flexible screen for $ 600

At CES 2022, China’s TCL unveiled the Flex V foldable smartphone. The device features a Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 design and mid-range chipset, but its main feature is its $ 600 price tag, which makes it the cheapest flexible OLED clamshell the market makes.

TCL Flex V is based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chipset, which was the most popular processor in mid-range smartphones in 2020. The device is equipped with a dual main camera that combines 48 megapixel and 16 megapixel sensors. A 44-megapixel sensor is used as the selfie module. The TCL Flex V has the same form factor as the more expensive Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3, but when folded, the gap between the halves is not so noticeable, which has a positive effect on the aesthetics.
