Tecno’s, a trailblazer in innovative technology, has thrilled to introduce its latest breakthrough fresh from the research and development labs – the Phantom Ultimate concept phone, featuring a groundbreaking sliding screen. This state-of-the-art device has ingeniously crafted to extend sideways, seamlessly expanding its display from 6.55 inches to an impressive 7.11 inches in a mere 1.2 to 1.3 seconds.
Serving as Tecno’s second visionary concept device, the Phantom Ultimate bears a striking resemblance to the Vision V model, albeit without the folding mechanism. Get an up-close look in the captivating video below.
Equipped with an ingenious single motor system, the Phantom Ultimate simplifies the usage of its screen sliding functionality. By a simple press of a button conveniently located on the upper right side of the phone, the device elegantly stretches its boundaries.
The pinnacle of innovation lies in the fact that even when the screen has retracted, the additional display seamlessly curves around the back, functioning as an Always On display for essential notifications, time, date, and more.
In terms of specifications, the display boasts an impressive 7.11-inch On-cell LTPO AMOLED panel, delivering a high resolution of 2,296 x 1,596 pixels, resulting in a pixel density of 388 PPI. The device proudly covers the entire DCI-P3 color gamut, a noteworthy achievement despite the challenges often faced by concept devices.
Maintaining a slim profile with a base thickness of 9.93 mm, Tecno ensures that the Phantom Ultimate remains comfortably operable with just one hand. The sliding mechanism features protective glass for durability, while the textured back enhances grip and handling.
Regrettably, as a concept phone, the Phantom Ultimate will not be available for commercial purchase in stores. Tecno has yet to divulge any information regarding market availability. Rollable screen technology is still in the process of overcoming certain technological barriers before achieving the practicality of conventional phones. The timeline for such advancements remains uncertain.
Stay tuned as Tecno’s continues to lead the charge in groundbreaking innovations, reshaping the future of smartphones.
