LG’s rollable phone could be the coolest phone you won’t be able to buy


Earlier this year, LG announced their plans to develop and release a rollable phone later this year. It was probably one of the most exciting announcements we’ve heard given how most smartphones all kind of look and feel the same, but unfortunately LG later announced that they would be exiting the market, which essentially killed off plans for the device.

There might be some good news on that front though, because a report from @FrontTron on Twitter claims that LG will apparently be selling its rollable phone, but only to its employees in Korea, and presumably in limited quantity.

So how is this good news? This is because if LG has working units that they have available to sell to employees, there is a good chance we will see some of those employees put their units online for resale, giving us a chance to maybe take a look at what could have been. There is no guarantee that this will happen so don’t get your hopes up just yet, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed that we’ll see more photos and videos of the phone in action.

That being said, LG isn’t the only company working on rollable phones. We had previously reported that Oppo was also working on a similar concept, and more recently Samsung also took the wraps off their own rollable displays, so there is still a chance that rollable phones could enter the market.
