review1st.com – The LG Rollable was introduced at the virtual press conference session of the LG company's CES 2021. The phone can be viewed once at the start of the conference and once at the end so no details are available at this time.
This smartphone comes with a unique screen and is part of the company's Project Explorer. As appropriate OPPO X 2021 which was introduced in November last year by OPPO, the LG Rollable also has a screen that extends from one side of the smartphone to a tablet.

The LG Rollable can be seen at the 02:06 mark at the LG CES 2021 press conference. This is evident in the form factor of smartphones normally in landscape mode with thinner bezels on the sides and thicker bezels at the top and bottom.
The screen and frame on the right are then stretched out to show the tablet like form factor. Then again, at the end of the CES 2021 conference, around 28:28, the LG Rollable looks to return from a tablet to its smartphone form factor.
LG didn't share any details about the phone and mentioned that it is the second device under Project Explorer. It has a “unique resisable screen” and is an “exploration” of what the future of smartphones might bring. “
This isn't the first time LG has introduced a roll-up display phone. Back in September 2020 at the official announcement event for the LG Wing, the company showed a profile of the device with its screen extended, as we now see in the presentation of CES 2021.
Even before the LG Wing's announcement event, rumors of an LG Rollable had been circulating in July with a release date being reported as June 2021.
Then, in November 2020, the alleged mobile rendering was shared and showed a side-rolling view and it was said. The launch will take place in March 2021.
Then in December, LG Rollable was reportedly seen on the South Korean operator's intranet database. The latest rumors about the LG Rollable from last month stated that the phone could be priced at $ 2,359 and is expected to launch in June 2021.
