In the context of smartphone companies like Samsung and Huawei pursuing the design of a folding screen smartphone, LG decided to choose a completely different approach.
Specifically, South Korean media quoted internal sources from LG as saying that the company is currently planning to launch a roll-screen smartphone in early 2021. Named Project B, this project is currently in production of prototype prototypes at LG factories located in China.

Normally, products that are commercialized before being launched will have to go through 3 to 4 testing stages. With each phase, smartphone manufacturers will ‘oven’ between 1000 and 2000 test prototypes.
Similar to the roll screen TVs introduced by LG in the last few years, its roll-screen smartphones have the ability to roll in / out as needed. In order to do this, LG will have to use a flexible OLED screen (Flexibel OLED Display), which can be bent into any shape. Currently, China’s leading display maker BOE is working with LG to develop the aforementioned screen.
It is known that the production of roll screens is no more difficult than the production of folding screens. However, LG will have to calculate how to arrange components such as batteries, cameras … to suit this brand new screen. Besides, the price as well as the durability of this new screen is also a problem that many users are concerned about.

According to South Korean media, LG’s determination to launch a roll screen smartphone aims to regain image in the eyes of technology users, and help the company’s spirit improve after the bad business period. As of now, LG’s smartphone business is in quite a tragic situation. LG’s market share continues to decline, while its revenue report shows that its mobile business has suffered losses for 20 consecutive quarters.
