Look at This Crazy LG Rollable Phone

Like the Oppo X 2021 that was teased back in November of previous year, the LG Rollable also has a screen that expands from one side from its smartphone shape to a tablet shape. However, LG could well be one of the first manufacturers to deliver a rollable smartphone. We should point out that this device may never make it market, but its appearance during the company's CES 2021 event suggests that it will, in our opinion.

Flexible screens have been the holy grail of smartphone innovation since the current form factor became ubiquitous over a decade ago.

LG isn't making the best-selling smartphones these days, but we have to admit that the South Korean company does have a flair for thinking out of the box, as we've seen with unorthodox models like the LG Wing. It will appear to be a standard glass smartphone at first look but a touch of a button will expand the screen horizontally. It will transform the smartphone into a tablet. With a rollable AMOLED display, it can be extended from 6.7-inches to 7.8-inches with a simple tap of the finger, turning it from a smartphone into a tablet and creating an entirely new user experience with its easily adaptable user interface. "As it is released at CES 2021, I can tell that it will be launched this year".

From what could be understood, the LG Rollable has a display that is connected at the bottom of the device, but then it comes out through the top half and goes back into the phone.

LG showcased the rollable phone in two short videos - one at the beginning and one at the end of its CES 2021 presentation.

In conversation with CNET, Stefan Streit, General Manager (Global Marketing) at TCL, said the company will launch a handset with a flexible display this year.
