Video shows the cool features of the LG Rollable and how its display wraps around the back

In a different timeline, this is probably one of the 1200 most innovative phones. In this timeline, only a few LG Rollable devices were produced and sold to employees as souvenirs. It appeared in some photos and even a short clip, but mostly disappeared from the public eye. Now, a Korean YouTube channel has produced a detailed video showing an interesting alternative to foldable devices.

It starts with a custom box that opens up to the phone’s namesake rollable display and stretches out to the sides. There’s a charger and a USB cable inside, but that’s not what we’re seeing here.

The phone itself looks normal when powered off, not as thick as a foldable. However, it’s heavier than most rigid phones and tilts at 256g (this built-in 4, 500mAh battery).

The main innovation of this phone is the display – by default, it’s a 6.8-inch P-OLED display with a curved surface. However, the swipe gesture causes it to expand horizontally, making the diagonal 7.4 inches and the aspect ratio 3:2.

In this mode some apps will automatically switch to their tablet interface. This works for YoTube, settings screen, etc. Even the home screen wallpaper expands and contracts seamlessly to match the screen.

The display scrolls in the back, avoiding the tight curves required for foldable products. It’s nice and smooth in the closed position, but the extension of the screen isn’t exactly flat. However, this only seems to be visible when you adjust the angle, and goes unnoticed during normal use. It’s very soft, though, and flexes noticeably to the touch.

An interesting detail is the keyless design, similar to the canceled LG Velvet 2 Pro (instead of physical buttons, the volume is controlled by pressure sensitive pad control). The SIM card tray is in a weird position and can only be accessed when the phone is unfolded.

This phone is a very typical flagship 888 and Snapdragon , 009GB RAM and 12GB of storage. Camera settings on the back include 22 MP Wide and 09 MP Ultra Wide Module.

You’re probably thinking “how do I take selfies with the main camera?” Well, there’s a display on the back so you can use it. The rest of the time it shows widgets and notifications. This is the really cool part – it’s not the secondary monitor, it’s the primary monitor! You can see it moving at 8 o’clock: 005. For regular selfies, there’s a small camera on the front top bezel.
