LG Rollable is a smartphone project with a flexible and rollable screen that is being developed by the South Korean firm. Few companies can boast of having challenged the way we use a smartphone by offering different form factors. One example in this area is the LG Wing, recently launched worldwide.
- Samsung shows a new format for its future foldable phones
- Galaxy Z Flip Lite will be Samsung’s most affordable foldable phone
- Apple tests the prototypes of the foldable iPhone
Taking into account that LG is -together with Samsung- the world’s largest producer of display screens, and has advanced technologies and production capacity, it is clear that LG will not be left out of the new generation of mobiles that are arriving with double or flexible screens. Now we have more information about features and a gif that shows the main design of the rollable smartphone of LG, thanks to a Twitter user called @cozyplanes.

As you will see in the video, a part of the screen (flexible OLED) is rolled up on one side so the user can take it out when he/she needs to expand it to reach the 7.4 inches diagonal screen, with different resolutions depending on the activity. The standard screen will have a 2428×1080 resolution (20: 9), with a 2428×1366 video mode (16: 9), and a 2428×1600 productivity mode (3: 2).
The processor of LG Rollable will be the brand new Snapdragon 888 presented this week. The device will have a 4200 mAh battery, a reasonable capacity considering its design.
Both Samsung and TCL have filed patents for a smartphone with a roll-up screen, so it is certain that smartphones from various manufacturers will come to market. The roll-up screen design is another alternative to the folding and dual-screens that mark this new generation of smartphones that seek to offer something different to a segment that is very much on the cutting edge of innovation. And surely the most difficult to produce. We will be looking forward to the news about LG Rollable.
