Korean tech giant LG is the first major vendor to promise a smartphone with a rollable screen. The company has never succumbed to the foldable phone trend, though it did launch several dual-screen phones. LG isn't the only company to be exploring the possibility of a rollable smartphone; TCL and Oppo have also shown off rollable phone concepts.
LG are gearing up to release the world's first rollable smartphone.
Life is ON TV is an internet broadcasting zone that will show video clips, documentaries and events related to LG's products.
As the name suggests, LG is using its rollable display technology to create a phone that starts out as a somewhat normal-shaped phone, but it can then expand or resize by unrolling to turn into a mini tablet.
Another source similarly claims that the LG Rollable will have a 7.4-inch screen, along with a top-end Snapdragon 888 chipset, 16GB of RAM, and a 4,200mAh battery. This sounds insane, but we have already seen phones that are capable of achieving this thanks to the use of folding screens.
Now that LG has branded its new LG Rollable phone and confirmed it's coming to market this year, we'll likely see a race among phone manufacturers to roll this rollable screen technology out.
