LG's first rollable phone could be called LG Rollable or LG Slide5
The LG Rollable and LG Slide names are being considered
LG has filed trademark applications (via LetsGoDigital) in the European Union for the names ‘LG Rollable’ and 'LG Slide.' The recent filings were classified under Class 9, which indicates they could be used on a smartphone.
Per the European Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO), Class 9 includes the following products: smartphones; digital mobile phones; electronic touch screen pen for smartphones; earphones for smartphones; wearable smartphones.
LG, one of the top 10 smartphone manufacturers, will likely use one of these names for its first rollable smartphone, which was teased at the LG Wing event in mid-September. The other could be discarded entirely.
The rollable device should arrive in March 2021
Unfortunately, very little is known about the LG Rollable/Slide at this stage when it comes to specifications, but in terms of design the product is expected to resemble a regular smartphone when the extended display isn’t in use.
To take advantage of the hidden tablet-sized experience, owners may have to pull on one side to extend the display.
