In a move that is sure to disrupt the global smartphone market, Chinese tech giant Vivo has announced a groundbreaking partnership with Transsion Holdings to introduce the world’s first roll-screen smartphone in 2024. This cutting-edge innovation promises to revolutionize the way we interact with our mobile devices, offering a new level of versatility and functionality.
The collaboration has been shrouded in secrecy, with limited details revealed about its specifications and features. However, industry experts anticipate that it will mark a significant departure from traditional smartphone design. Just recently, Transition launched a roll-screen concept phone – the Techno Phantom Ultimate, known for its dominance in the African mobile market with subsidiaries such as Tecno Mobile, Infinix Mobile, and itel Mobile.
Transition’sRoll-up Screen Mobile Phones
Transsion introduced the Techno Phantom Ultimate, a roll-screen phone, in September of last year. When the button on the top of the product is pressed, the 6.55-inch screen will quickly expand to 7.11 inches in 1.2 to 1.3 seconds.
The screen has a PPI of 388, a resolution of 2296 by 1596 pixels, and 100% DCI-P3 color gamut coverage. The phone also has a little screen on the rear that may be used as an information display. To improve grip, the back cover features a striped anti-slip pattern.
Vivo’s Roll-screen Smartphone: What to Expect
According to industry insiders, the duo Chinese smartphone manufacturers are actively developing roll-screen mobile phones and intend to introduce them by the end of next year, according to industry insiders. Mobile phones with roll-up screens are those that have partially unfoldable screens. The partially hidden screen will appear when the action button is pressed, and the product screen will enlarge proportionately.
However, based on our survey, it is assumed that CSOT or Samsung Display will provide the roll-screen mobile phone panels for Vivo. According to industry predictions, China Star Optoelectronics could increase its involvement in providing panels for Vivo’s roll-screen mobile phones.
Recently, Chinese smartphone manufacturers have been actively working on roll-screen phones since they are aware of how challenging it will be to overtake Samsung in the market for folding phones. Samsung is working on a variety of devices, including roll-screen phones, but for the time being, it needs to concentrate on growing the market for foldable phones. The functionalities that should have been centered on the foldable phone may be scattered if Samsung releases a roll-screen phone.
As we look ahead to 2024, it’s clear that the collaboration between Vivo and Transsion Holdings has the potential to reshape the smartphone landscape. The roll-screen smartphone is expected to revolutionize the industry by giving users unprecedented flexibility and variety in their mobile devices. Thus, stay tuned for further updates as we inch closer to the official unveiling of this highly anticipated innovation.
