During its CES 2021 press conference, LG sneaked a teaser for a smartphone with a display that rolls out to become roughly tablet-sized. From that, there were speculations that the Rollable was a concept phone and not ready to be released.
Details about the device remain thin on the ground now, but it seems that it has been trademarked the LG Rollable.
Whether LG's announcement kicks off a flurry of activity with other smartphone companies racing to announce their own answers to the Rollable remains to be seen.
However, the company did not reveal detailed specifications and overall design. This seemed apt because LG has recently given a preview of the brand new "LG Rollable" smartphone prototype in their press conference.
The brief glimpse of the rollable smartphone was the second tease of this device, showing a phone screen extending upward to form a bigger display like a tablet. Fair play to LG for rolling the dice though (geddit?).
CES 2021 holds several of the best technology releases and innovations that the world has, from different companies and individuals who have imaginative minds that focus on futuristic designs.
The LG Rollable will go on sale in 2021
In addition to its premium electronics and AI technology, LG unveiled services related to its upgraded IoT platform, LG ThinQ, with partnership deals.
It's an interesting concept and LG isn't the only company that thinks so.
It also introduced a "scan-to-cook" feature, which provides optimal cooking recipes when users scan the barcode of a food product.
"The most important thing about this idea is that it will be an open and collaborative eco-system". According to a report in GSMArena, while it was exciting to get a tease of the future product at CES 2021, not a lot of details were provided.
Judging by the video, the back of the TCL device may be very reflective, as the video shows the woman flipping the device over to apply lipstick, apparently using the phone as a mirror.
