LG Rollable Phone Latest Hands-On Video
However, the South Korean tech giant has ceased making phones, as per the latest news story by XDA Developers. As such, the intriguing LG Rollable never actually saw the light of day.
But despite that, the Rollable did not end up a complete mystery.
Some rare photos and videos reveal how the canceled mobile device looks and how its innovative display works. Not to mention that hands-on videos have showcased how the unreleased phone would have been if it rolled out.
And this time, another hands-on video on YouTube showcases what should have been the earliest rollable phone on the market.
The new video shows how the rollable display smoothly expands its screen by swiping with two fingers.
XDA Developers highlights that the UI of the software seamlessly transforms as the display gets bigger.
LG Rollable Specs
According to a report by Android Police, the canceled LG phone has more to offer than its impressive display.
If it debuted, the new hands-on video claims it sports glorious specifications.
It rocks a Snapdragon 888, which also powers most flagship Android phones at that time. It also has what it takes to run multiple apps at once, thanks to its 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of internal storage. Not to mention that it features a huge 4,500 mAh battery.
What Happened to LG’s First Rollable
Smartphones these days have started embracing a new form – the foldable, whether in clamshell or sandwich design. Giant phone makers like Samsung, Xiaomi, and Huawei have dived into these emerging markets early on.

A man using his phone walks past the LG logo at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona on February 26, 2019. – Phone makers will focus on foldable screens and the introduction of blazing fast 5G wireless networks at the world’s biggest mobile fair as they try to reverse a decline in sales of smartphones.
However, LG wanted to go against the tide back in 2021. The tech giant attempted to introduce a different take on a smartphone that no other manufacturer has managed to do so.
XDA Developers notes in its report that the former phone maker teased its rollable device when it debuted the LG Wing phone in September 2020. The South Korean firm says that its Rollable is supposed to hit the shelves by 2021.
But the plan never actually took off-the tech behemoth bid farewell to making smartphones last year. In turn, it has also pulled the plug on the rollable device.
