Whereas it is having none of that foldable motion, not less than to date, LG is outwardly engaged on a rollable smartphone, that was pictured in 3D renders in August final 12 months. These renders are primarily based on a patent LG filed for, and typically with patents nothing really comes out of them within the type of an actual product.
This time issues appear to be totally different. In line with a report from LG's house of Korea, the corporate will launch the rollable smartphone presently codenamed Mission B sooner or later in early 2021.
Curiously sufficient, the show panel will likely be supplied by BOE, and never LG Show, for no matter cause. Prototype manufacturing is already underway at LG's manufacturing unit in Pyeongtaek. Round 1,000 to 2,000 prototypes are produced, and it often takes three to 4 rounds of prototypes earlier than a ultimate product stage is reached.
Mission B is supposed to reestablish LG as an progressive participant within the smartphone area, the place it has been dropping cash for 20 straight quarters. This machine ought to remake LG's model picture, and it is named after CEO Kwon Bong-seok.
Alongside Mission B, LG is claimed to be launching a traditional-looking flagship cellphone within the first half of 2021, codenamed Rainbow, and a "horizontal" smartphone coming within the second half of this 12 months, codenamed Wing. It is unclear what precisely this entails.
