In the CSE 2021 virtual press conference, the LG Rollable smartphone was teased by the company. The phone is said to be having a “unique resisable screen”. The phone is the second of its Explorer Project of launching phones with a new and different design or concept. The device will be launching later this year and will have a screen that expands from one side and have a tablet-like form factor.
The device comes after Oppo X 2021 that was teased back in November last year and is set to be having a similar concept as well. Moreover, even LG has previously shown plans for a rollable laptop that is in the works at the end of last year, and hence the phone may implement the same technology just in a smaller display.
In the video shown during the press conference showed this device being used. Initially, the phone just appears like any other ordinary smartphone being used in landscape mode with slim bezels on the side and thicker bezels on the top and bottom.
But then the display on the phone extends from the side and then a tablet-like form factor of the smartphone is visible. The phone then is visible and can be used just like any other tablet as well.
Towards the end of the video, the display again shrinks to its initial form factor and can be seen just like any regular smartphone.
However, LG hasn’t revealed any information regarding the price, specifications, or any other details about the device. The video of the phone, part of the Explorer Project has been said to be “an ‘exploratory’ look at what the future of smartphones may bring.
The phone as mentioned earlier is the second device of the Explorer Project series of smartphones with the first one being the LG Wing launched in September last year. The phone had a never seen before, Swiveling design with a display that can be completely swiveled to have 2 sets of display.
There is no official information regarding the phone yet but the online rumors suggest the phone will be launched in June or July of 2021 and be carrying a price tag of $2,359 (approx Rs. 1,73 lakh).
