According to the pictures, the LG Rollable is very Similar al Oppo X2021, Which was issued last November.

Details about the device remain thin on the ground now, but it seems that it has been trademarked the LG Rollable. The technology that "rolls" the display of televisions have been revealed by the South Korean company in October previous year, but turning it into a smaller device like a smartphone seems impossible.

The smartphone maker has already set the wheel in motion in its innovation department with the launch of a dual-screen phone called LG Wing which comes with a rotating screen. Now LG has confirmed the phone will, well, roll out in 2021, making it the first such device to hit the market.

(Pocket-lint) - LG has produced a rollable TV before that you might remember and now it seems the Korean giant is set to reveal a rollable phone. That might mean only one side will on the finished phone, but it's equally possible that both will and that LG simply chose to only show one. While most of us are quite used to phones with rigid, hard-backed skins, this new development seems to be interesting on its own. Instead, the interface - which is nearly certain to be Android - can adapt to suit how much of the screen you have on show, extending or contracting the UI and any apps accordingly.
