LG shows video of rollable phone – News

After the foldable smartphone, you can expect the first rollable mobile phone soon. The scoop is for the South Korean LG, which showed a short video of the device at the CES fair this week.

The unveiling of the LG Rollable doesn’t really come as a surprise, since the electronics giant had already filed a patent for a smartphone with that name in November last year. We got our first glimpse of the device at CES 2021. The short five-second video shows a gadget with an almost tablet-sized screen that ‘rolls up’ to the dimensions of a smartphone.

On the market this year

According to Nikkei Asia, LG is collaborating with China’s BOE Technology Group for the rollable screens and using Flexible OLED technology. A spokesperson for LG said that the rollable smartphone will be on the market this year.

LG is not ready for its test piece when it comes to rollable displays. Exactly one year ago, the company already introduced the LG Signature OLED TV R at CES, the first roll-up television in the world. With the push of a button you make the wafer-thin 65-inch OLED screen appear or disappear again in the accompanying furniture, where the display is literally rolled up. It is also possible to roll out only part of the OLED screen for specific tasks. Think of a clock, music player or a dashboard with notifications.
