The smartphone world is always evolving with newer concepts each year. While the foldable phones are becoming a more prominent part of the smartphone world, LG gave us a glimpse at its next Explorer project device which has a rollable display. This is not the first time LG is teasing the rollable-display device, but at CES this year, LG provided the best look at the device so far. But it is worth noting that it is still not done yet and as expected the company avoided going into any further details around the device.
During the presentation, LG cut to a brief clip that shows a device being held at is screen and starts to shrink down and at the end it reveals the “LG Rollable” name. Now, this seems like a final name of the device. The device has what the company calls a “unique resizable screen” that transforms from a phone into a small tablet. We can clearly see the top of the screen retracting back into the rest of the phone via presumably motorized mechanism, as the screen goes from tablet to smartphone form factor. You can check out the clip below to get a better idea of how it looks in the real-world.
It looks like the LG rollable device will expand from the right hand side when the phone is held in portrait mode. LG Rollable is definitely not the first of its kind as the other companies are also working on their rollable displays. TCL showed off a its concepts last year and Oppo also demonstrated a concept device with an expandable OLED display. At this time, we do not have a lot of information around the LG Rollable device. CNET claims that the LG Rollable device could be held later this year and another report from Korea’s ETNews claimed that the LG Rollable launch is scheduled for March 2021 launch.
