According to a new report, the LG smartphone “Project B” with a rollable display is due to hit the market in March 2021. A render of the phone has also surfaced, showing a scrollable display that can be expanded from either side of the phone. The render is based on a patent pending by LG for a phone with a “flexible display” that can be rolled into the case. The patent was filed with the USPO (United States Patent and Trademark Office) in August 2019 and has now been published. This is expected to be the second smartphone as part of LG’s “Explorer Project” after the South Korean company launched the LG Wing with two screens and a swiveling main display last month.
It was previously reported that “Project B” had gone into production to prepare the launch dates in the second half of 2021. But a new one report von TheElec now estimates the launch will be in March 2021.
The do of the telephone “Project B” created by LetsGoDigital is based on a patent submitted by LG for a “slidable” mobile terminal now in the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office) database display that increases 100 percent when the screen is viewed from both the left and right sides of the Pulled out when held vertically. This means that the user will likely also have the option of pulling the screen out from just one side and achieve a display size that is somewhere between a smartphone and a tablet.
“Project B,” which is said to have been codenamed after LG CEO Kwon Bong-seok, likely has an OLED display that can be partially rolled into a metal case. The report says LG will also install a “side lock” that prevents the screen from rolling in or out unintentionally or even too quickly, which can cause the display to wrinkle.
LG is reportedly working on another phone, code-named “Rainbow,” which is expected to hit the market in the first quarter of next year. The Elec report speculates that its specs will be similar to LG’s V series, which includes the LG V40, V50, and V60 ThinQ phones introduced last year.
