LG rollable phone might be gone for good

South Korean sources suggest this week that LG's sent word of a halting of efforts for their future rollable phone. This conceptual effort was meant to be a real deal, at some point - a phone with a display that'd effective unfurl like a scroll.

Xiaomi Quad-curved Waterfall Display concept has no room for bezels

The war over bezels wages on and we are nowhere near the end yet. Punch-hole cutouts are just a stopgap measure until the ideal under-display camera or UDC has been implemented. That still leaves room for a few more attempts, of course, including designs that answer the next big question, what to do with all that reclaimed space.
