Unfortunately, with LG’s withdrawal from the mobile phone business, of course, there is no follow-up to this plan. Two years later, I didn’t expect that a Korean YouTuber suddenly unboxed LG’s unlisted mobile phone: LG Rollable, look at the name, it is the LG scroll phone that has become an urban legend with the “Explorer Project”. !

Of course, the focus is still on the screen. The screen of the LG Rollable is 6.8 inches when it is not unfolded. It can be unfolded up to 7.4 inches when it is opened through the hinge. The hinge mechanism is similar to the scroll phone displayed by OPPO in the Taipei Xinyi pop-up store in 2021: OPPO Find X 2021, the difference is that LG Rollable extends the phone through the right swipe gesture, instead of using the side power button for sensing, the interface will automatically adjust the size when the screen is extended, and the transition process looks very smooth
