With all the noise around folding screens, designers are starting to have fun with other non-traditional options for smartphones. Take a look at this concept design, carrying the Tesla name. It’s called the C1 and yes, you are looking at an expanding screen, not a folding one.
How is this possible? It’s not entirely clear. But the idea is interesting. When the phone is “closed”, there is a portion of the screen available for notifications and widgets. And if you turn it over, you’ll see a standard-type screen. But once you expand it, the screen moves right along turning into almost a tablet. It also appears there are two cameras, as expected with any phone — and of course, dedicated volume buttons as well as power on the side. Could this ever be brought to life? We may not know for some time. But it would certainly be an easy sell.
