Motorola shows off a concept phone with a rollable display


Phones with foldable displays appear to be the rage these days, but while Samsung was working on phones with foldable displays, the company’s rival LG decided to develop a phone with a rollable display. That phone never came to pass due to LG calling it quits on the smartphone market, but it looks like Motorola is here to pick up where LG left off.

During Lenovo Tech World 2022, the company took the wraps off a new concept smartphone that featured a rollable display. Unlike LG’s approach where the phone unrolled itself to become a tablet, Motorola’s concept builds off the approach the company took with its Razr foldable smartphone, where a smaller phone unrolled and stretched its display to become a bigger phone.

Before you ask when you might be able to get your hands on this device, keep in mind that right now this is more of a proof of concept that shows off the company’s work on flexible OLED screens. We’re not actually sure if Motorola will develop such a smartphone and bring it to the market, but we have to say that we wouldn’t mind if they did as it looks pretty awesome.

In fact, there might be a bigger appeal for such a device. The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip series has proven itself to be more popular than the Galaxy Z Fold lineup. While we’re sure pricing plays a part, it is also possible that there are many users who can appreciate carrying a smaller device in their bags or pockets.
