The screen is retractable, and the stillborn LG Rollable's new hands-on video flows out || On hand video of LG Rollable Screen Smartphone
Before LG exited the smartphone market, the company developed a unique rollable smartphone, the LG Rollable. LG warmed up the machine at the LG Wing conference in September 2020. Then a prototype of the phone was shown at CES in 2021.

At that time, LG also said that the phone would be available in 2021. Of course, as LG officially withdrew from the mobile phone market in April last year, the phone was also dead.

Although the LG Rollable has not been listed, pictures and videos of the machine have been leaked online many times before, allegedly because LG sold the machine to its employees.

Now a YouTube channel in South Korea has released a detailed hands-on video of the phone, giving us a better understanding of the phone.

The video shows that the LG Rollable has a unique retail package that slides open like a phone's display, with the phone, some documents, a charging head and a USB cable inside.

According to the video, the LG Rollable is equipped with Qualcomm's Snapdragon 888 SoC, 12GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and a 4500mAh battery. On the front is a 6.8-inch flexible POLED display that can be expanded into a larger 7.4-inch screen.

On the back, the LG Rollable features a dual-camera setup consisting of a 64-megapixel main camera with OIS support and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera. The phone also sports a circular fingerprint reader just below the rear-facing camera module.

Interestingly, the LG Rollable doesn't come with the traditional power and volume buttons. Instead, the device has touch-sensitive controls on the left edge for turning the screen on and off and adjusting the volume.

The highlight, of course, is the LG Rollable's display, which seamlessly expands and contracts with a two-finger swipe gesture, and the user interface automatically adjusts to fit the changing form factor. UI transitions look pretty smooth, even in apps like YouTube.

While having a retractable display means the phone doesn't wrinkle as noticeably as Samsung's foldable phones, the retractable portion of the display still looks a little wrinkled. In addition, the retractable section is not as strong in construction as the rest of the display, and can easily bend when pressed.
AndroBliz understands that other OEMs are developing similar smartphones and can expect such phones to appear in the future.
