The LG Flex foldable phone could actually be a roller. Yup, it looks like LG is looking into a rollable phone that cold arrive in 2019 to take on the Samsung Galaxy X.
According to patents filed by LG and found by LetsGoDigital, the new type of phone uses a similar tech to patents we’ve seen filed for new rollable TVs from Samsung.
The phone features two solid ends into which the screen will roll. One of those ends features a home style button that doubles as a fingerprint reader while the other features a screen. This display is likely for at-a-glance notifications when the phone’s main screen is rolled away.
Despite the screen being able to roll away it is described as a large touchscreen. This works with a stylus pen which sits in the right of the two screen ends, which double as handles.
The handset comes with several cameras capable of capturing 3D photos thanks to a stereoscopic matrix layout. This works in conjunction with a laser sensor and flash.
The 3D doesn’t stop there as 3D audio is also described. Little else is said. The OS is Android but, again, few other details are included.
