Summary

LG only showed a combined 10 seconds of the LG Rollable to start and end its press conference, but the footage shows a phone with two sliding halves and a "growing" display. The Moto Razr flip phone works on the same principle: opening the phone pulls a sliding, floating display tight over a back panel, sort of like a drumhead.For a product that is supposed to be out soon, we're disappointed that LG's footage uses a simulated display instead of showing the actual screen. It's not clear if that's better or worse.The LG Rollable, if it launches, would be LG's first phone with a moving, flexible display (we're trying to not count the ridiculous, banana-shaped LG G Flex from 2013, which had a curved, unmoving, "flexible" display behind rigid glass). A report from Nikkei Asia from around that time pegs BOE as a recipient of that stolen Samsung technology, and today, BOE and Samsung are the two main vendors of flexible displays for smartphones.You've also got to wonder why LG, Oppo, and TCL are all demoing what looks to be essentially the same rollable phone concept.
