It has been confirmed for some time by LG itself that they are developing a smartphone with a unique design, featuring a scrollable screen that allows it to “stretch” and assume the tablet format. However, until now it had not been possible to have a concrete idea of ​​how this smartphone would look.

Now, during its first presentation at CES 2021, the manufacturer presented us with the first images of its scrollable smartphone. Unfortunately, we have not yet been able to access the CES 2021 presentation video, but the captured image allows us to understand how this smartphone will work.

As suspected, the scrollable smartphone from LG will have a traditional shape when “closed”. However, its screen can be easily expanded, assuming a tablet format thanks to an automatic mechanism that “unwinds” the screen.

During the presentation, the company avoided going into details about its first smartphone with a scrollable screen, having only been confirmed that it will be called LG Rollable.

LG Rollable presents the same robustness concerns as foldable smartphones

In terms of user experience, it is expected that this type of approach will solve one of the weaknesses of foldable smartphones, the extremely visible mark in the center of the screen.

However, concerns about possible weaknesses in its entire construction remain. Regardless of the mechanism developed by LG, the addition of moving parts to a product that will suffer constant “bumps” is always a risk that many are not willing to take.

Unfortunately, no details have yet been revealed on the possible specifications of the LG Rollable, nor a possible date of official presentation.

For now, we will need to be content with the small “samples” that are being published by the manufacturer.
