Rollable phones could give foldables a run for their money

Although Samsung (or actually Royale) started it last year, it was only really this year that foldable phones truly took off, with the more mature Galaxy Z Flip 2 and the Motorola Razr 5G.

The tablet market has seen consistently positive figures, mostly in thanks to Apple and the iPad Pro's rapid development pace.

So, what smartphone will be the most trusted design in terms of its display technology in a couple of years? Let’s find out.

LG Rollable could be rollable Project B phone’s commercial name

LG sought to reinvent itself this year and got the ball rolling on two things. It created new product lines, Universal and Explorer, for "normal" and experimental phones, respectively. It also adopted a new naming scheme that moved away from single letters and numbers to make its phones more memorable. After the LG Velvet and the LG Wing, the company's next unconventional phone might be the LG Rollable. That is at least based on a trademark filing in Europe and it leaves little to the imagination what it could be.
