Rollable Phones are the new big thing in the Smartphone industry. Smartphone’s future is definitely bright as most the manufacture is now focusing on future technology, invention, and innovations. Foldable phones are already here and before 4-5 years we could not even imagine these phones. Smartphone manufactures are making the upcoming smartphones in a way so that these big-sized smartphones can easily fit in our pockets but these phones are no smaller than the tablets so it will increase productivity.
The smartphones brands believe that they will convert our big and bulky workstations into a compact and portable size and they are starting off from Smartphones. During the short teaser at CES 2021, the rollable phones were announced and the LG Rollable Phone is already on its way to launch soon in the market.
The LG Rollable Smartphones will be the first one to arrive in the market, LG had announced their Rollable smartphone and we are sure that other smartphone brands are also finding a way to innovate something new in the smartphones. We may soon get to see the LG Rollable Smartphone, however, there are some rumors that LG has abandoned the project and they are quitting the smartphone market, if this is true then there will be no Rollable Smartphone this year, as no other brand has even talked about the rollable smartphone. LG was the first one to do so, but if they make exit then it is possible, that we may not see any other rollable smartphone.
The Upcoming Rollable Phones
Rollable Phones is not out yet, but there are a lot of cool and amazing Rollables coming out from different brands which possible will make drastic changes in the Smartphone industry, however, the prices of these smartphones are also a big concern and if the price is expensive then we may not see any major impact on the industry.
The 2 major appealing thing about a rollable smartphone is the form factor and the durability. These 2 things are a big concern as previously we have seen that the Samsung foldable was creating some serious issues for the users and for the company as well.
It was reported that the Samsung Galaxy Fold was extremely fragile which has been fixed in the next version of the phone which is the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2. But according to some users, they are still facing some issue with the folding screen of Fold 2, and according to Samsung this is happening due to too much usage of the folding mechanism, it actually sounded very odd but it is true that there is a lot of time when we can adopt these type of innovative smartphones.
So now let discuss the upcoming Rollable Smartphones.
LG Rollable Smartphone
The LG Rollable Phone is the first one to come upon this list. This will be an amazing smartphone with all the great features. It will have the best processor which is Snapdragon 888, as of now. Along with different RAM variants. This rollable phone will be opened up when you slide it from one side. The phone will get extended from 2 sides and that is how you will be able to use the rollable phone. If you do not understand what we just said then have a look at this figure:
Now, if you look at the image above, you can understand that the rolling mechanism has been installed on 2 sides of the phone, and that is how it will get extended. This rollable phone will be the first one of its own kind, as LG is the first brand to release this smartphone in 2021, but there are some rumors that LG has canceled this project, have a look at the tweets below.

So, the news says that the first LG has been canceled due to a disagreement between buyer and seller. Also, LG is quitting the Smartphone industry, so there are very high chances that we don’t get to see any of the rollable phones this year.
Oppo X Rollable Smartphone
Another rollable in this list is from Oppo and they have even mentioned this prototype on their official website. As of this, this is just a concept device that has been designed to test rolling components and parts, but we can confirm that we will get this to see this phone soon. We are not confirming the release dates etc, but many popular Smartphone reviews have even got their hands on with Oppo X rollable phone. Oppo has been known for the experiments and innovations and we can expect this phone to come out soon, but it may not be possible this year.
TCL Rollable Phone
TCL is not very popular when it comes to smartphone brands. The leaks say that the TCL concept phone is rollable and foldable which sounds odd but leaks have confirmed that. TCL brand is very popular in European countries like USA or UK and they are mostly associated with TVs and not with Smartphone, but in a report, it has been revealed that they are actually working on a rollable and foldable smartphone. This news first came out when TCL announced their splashy prototype concept during the CES 2021.
It is very clear that we are going to get a lot of new and upcoming smartphones with different experiments from the brands and this includes the rollable and foldable features. Definitely, we are not only going to use traditional smartphones in the future, the future is different from that. And the rollable phones will be on the list of futuristic phones for sure.
Google Folding Pixel
Google has always been known to take the crazy ideas or working ones and turn them into something great. In 2019 Google first expressed an interest in a Pixel Device that can be folded up. There was a leak revealing a Passport codename in 2020 which was identified as a folding phone and is supposed to have a 7.6 inch flexible AMOLED panel from Samsung and Google is supposedly going to give us information about it in the Q4 2021. And with the introduction to the Android 12 beta Google has themselves been talking about foldable phones as in because during the development of Android 12 Dave Burke, VP of engineering told the developers to optimize the apps for larger screens including foldable phones. It also includes hints for a one handed mode which may be hinting towards a larger pixel phone in development or a foldable phone.
So this was all about Rollable Phones and the future of Smartphones. Hopefully, you will like our approach.
