Recently, flexible screen technology has begun to be used by several smartphone brands to create innovative new smartphones. For example, Samsung launched the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip by utilizing its flexible display technology.
But recently there is the latest news that says that LG is currently preparing a new smartphone that uses folding screen technology. It is known that the smartphone comes with the name Project B.
It is said that the Project B smartphone made by LG will come with a rolling screen concept. LG itself actually has patented the design of the roll screen smartphone last year.
LG is currently reportedly producing prototype products for Project B at their factory located in PyeongTaek, South Korea.
Actually it is not too difficult for LG to make a device with a rolling screen concept. Because in 2019, LG had announced an OLED TV called the LG Signature OLED TV R which comes with a roll screen concept.
But for this Project B smartphone, LG doesn’t seem to be using their own screen but rather a flexible screen made by one of the well-known screen manufacturers from China, BOE.
The plan is a roll screen smartphone made by LG will be launched in the year 2021. Let’s wait for the development of the new product made by LG.
