TCL delays release of its low-cost foldable smartphone
Electronics company TCL has paused its plans to release a low-cost foldable phone this year, the company confirmed recently.
In a statement sent to The Verge on email, Stefan Streit, chief marketing officer of TCL said, “Although the foldable market is growing each year, it is still a premium product category.”
He added, “In combination with recent component shortages, the COVID-19 pandemic and rising costs in foldable production, TCL has made the difficult decision to suspend the launch of its first commercially available foldable smartphone until the company can produce and bring it to market at a price point that’s accessible to as many consumers as possible.”
Streit added that the company is “closely monitoring the market to determine the best time to launch a foldable smartphone.”
