Max J from AllAboutSamsung reported about receiving intel about a rollable smartphone prototype. One might think as per now, there are no foldable smartphones available for end-users to use as companies are facing a hard time making them durable and after Samsungs's issue foldable smartphone require more fixing and testing.

The tweet has revealed some of the key specifications of the phone, which can tell us quite a lot about the phone. The upcoming device is also said to be powered with Qualcomm's Snapdragon SM7350 chipset and will be coming with 3220mAh battery and 10x zoom camera. Nautilus design has been used in this phone.
