A rendering of the phone shows that it had a similar design to the one recently released by Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3. When opened, it had a 6.67-inch AMOLED display. In the folded mode, users could access a 1.1-inch AMOLED screen that would have displayed information such as the day and time, notifications, access to a flashlight, and more.
Inside, the phone would have had the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor, as well as 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage, and a 3,545 mAh battery. There would have been two rear cameras: a 48 MP main sensor and a 16 MP ultra wide camera. There would also have been a 44-megapixel front camera.
In one (n Interview with Cnet, which contained actual images of the Chicago prototype, Streit said the price of the phone would have been around $ 800. While that’s actually cheaper than Samsung’s current foldable phones, apparently it wasn’t low enough for TCL to pull the trigger for the Chicago launch, which would have happened sometime in the fourth quarter of 2021. Instead, TCL will start again with a different phone, which will not start for at least 12 to 18 months.
With TCL pulling out of the foldable phone race, at least for now, it looks like Samsung will dominate this niche market for some time.
