LG's "Life is On" CES 2021 virtual press conference subtly teased the LG Rollable, making it the next device to be seen (after the LG Gram), which extended the display in the 2-minute mark before transitioning to its senior vice president.
LG's Rollable phone turned heads with its extendable display that converts from a phone to a tablet.
According to Slashgear, other leaks suggest the device has a 4,200 mAh battery and 16GB of RAM, though as the site notes, 16GB of RAM seems way too much since even flagship LG phones tend not to have high-end specs like that. The concept is futuristic and LG's teaser certainly fanned the hype. A few LG Rollable rumors have been circulating since November of 2020, claiming that the device will make its official debut in March of this year. The device has what the company calls a "unique resizable screen" that transforms from a phone into a small tablet. It looks like magic, since the display grows and shrinks with content on it, but again, this is a similar idea to the rollable LG TV that was the story of last year's CES. It's now merely a part of LG's Explorer Project that examines ways to "breathe new life into what makes a smartphone".

Farmers including women under the banner of Kisan Mazdoor Sangharsh Committee held a protest at Pandherkalan village in Amritsar. Its activists shouted slogans terming the BJP government as authoritarian and alleging it of promoting crony-capitalism.
The company showed the best look of device so far and named it LG Rollable. Instead, LG has already released their weird flippable Wing phone as an alternative, but their next play is where things get weirder and possibly more awesome.
LG was once considered a major player in the smartphone market but has taken a back seat to companies like Samsung and Huawei.
For once, LG may have a leg up on the competition.
