LG CEO on if the company is exiting the smartphone business
Android Police reached out to the South Korean company's global communicator for consumer tech, Ken Hong to find out if there was any substance to the rumor. Here is what Ken had to say:
The LG Rollable has seemingly been delayed
The Rollable smartphone, which was previewed at CES 2021, was earlier expected to arrive in March. The phone has a screen that extends upwards to create a larger display.
Keep in mind that the device was only shown on video and the company didn't bring an actual prototype to the trade show.
As a result, the launch has supposedly been pushed to September.
According to one leak, the device is going to be mighty expensive and this makes us wonder if the Rollable will be more of a niche product. This doesn't sound like the brightest of ideas for a company that needs to increase shipment volume to stay in business.
