The new foldable smartphone will have two names for the two hinges, says CNET. The first is named Dragon Hinge, which folds in and the second hinge is called Butterfly Hinge that folds out. Together, the hinges form a zig-zag shape to open the smartphone to a larger screen. The outer layer is formed by the screen closed with the Butterfly Hinge.

At the moment, the Chinese company has not announced any name for the foldable smartphone. There is no news about a probable launch date or even leaks about the expected price. Coming to the features, a report about the TCL foldable smartphone mentioned it might have a quad-camera set up at the rear, which will be placed at the front-facing sensor.

The TCL foldable smartphone is also expected to feature a USB Type-C port. Speculations also reveal that TCL might scrap the 3.5mm audio socket. The prototype device that CNET received is not a fully functional smartphone and doesn't feature a working screen. Hence, it's hard to say more about the folded display and other details.
