LG is Working on Foldable Smartphones

Smartphone users are consistently searching for a reason to upgrade their existing phones to be able to get new features that are not available with just updates.  Recently, cellular companies have not really come out with anything that is driving consumers to feel the need to go out and upgrade with each new launch of their phone.  This has caused Apple stock to decline in the past month and other phone companies are sure to feel the same affects soon unless they come up with some new feature that will drive consumer spending. 

LG might have an answer to the need for new technology for smartphone consumers.  LG recently made a huge impact at the CES Convention last week with the rollout of the rollup TV.  This television is revolutionary, and it was even named in the top 10 of new technology items displayed.  It is now reported that LG is working on a roll-able and or foldable smartphone.

Apparently, the decision to experiment with this type of technology is because 5G is reported to require larger screens making current phones on the market not as functional.

THE COMPETITION

Samsung and a Chinese company, Royole, have already developed foldable phones but the Samsung is scheduled to launch later this year while Royole phones are only available in China. 

LG has been experimenting with flexible displays for years which is why they are the first to launch the roll-able television.  This is not a surprising venture for most in the technology industry.  The 65″ roll-able TV that was just displayed uses technology that replaces the glass on current televisions with a mounted display that has a flexible substance that is able to roll.  According to LG the television can roll and unroll 50,000 times without breaking.   

The idea that a roll-able phone is possible is exciting to smartphone technology developers because the current foldable phone has been called nothing but a trend.
