Samsung could be the first to launch a rollable phone
So, when will we get to see a commercial version?
LG was earlier expected to release its rollable phone in March 2021, but the launch has seemingly been delayed to May now. A report from the South Korean blog Naver suggests that the "driving part" of the device is not working as intended, and the company also seems to be dealing with supply-side constraints. As a result, it has seemingly decided to push back the release.
Samsung never shows immature concept products to the public. But Samsung is often the first to turn the concept into reality.— Ice universe (@UniverseIce) November 17, 2020
Regardless of who releases a rollable phone first, it could be a long time before the tech gains traction. Ice doesn't see expandable devices entering mass production anytime soon and they believe 2021 will be very much about foldable phones.
The scroll screen mobile phone is only a laboratory test product. It is far from being mass-produced. Next year, it will still be the stage of Fold. Huawei, Xiaomi, OPPO, etc. will release their own "Fold"— Ice universe (@UniverseIce) November 18, 2020
