LG phone launch events have taken an intriguing turn ever since the tech giant introduced the praised LG Velvet and the LG Wing.
The company wanted to keep us hooked, so new hints about one of the most daring projects resurfaced. LG Project B might debut in the first half of 2021, introducing a rollable display!
Fresh reports indicate the LG rollable phone should hit the market in March 2021.
Here is what you need to know.
LG Rollable Phone Expected Features: What We Know So Far
According to new reports, a render of a handset with a rollable display was seen. The panel appears to extend on either side of the smartphone, which is probably the craziest idea so far, seen on a phone.
TheElec claims that the much-awaited LG rollable phone could arrive in March 2021. Such a thing is against all the things we came across this year.
Previous predictions, for instance, suggested the rollable smartphone would debut in the second of 2021.
Furthermore, the LG rollable device is believed to be now under the LG Explorer Project that recently introduced the dramatic LG Wing with a swivel concept. But, other reports indicate that the rollable panel was developed solely under LG Project B.
Project B More Details: What Should You Know
A few months ago, LetsGoDigital had revealed a patent by LG that features a “slidably-moveable” smartphone under LG’s Project B.
The project was launched by LG CEO Kwon Bong-Seok and introduced some of the most unique and innovative concepts for several devices.
Another report claimed that the panel would expand to 100 % when the display is pulled from both sides (how great is this?!) – when held vertically.
Now, the patented rollable phone concept is included in the World Intellectual Property Office.
What to Expect
The upcoming LG rollable phone might finally arrive as the company’s way to wear a powerful foothold in smartphone design. If all the rumors and reports turn out to be accurate, we should expect more details from LG at the beginning of the next year.
