San Francisco: Global smartphone brand Motorola has showcased its rollable smartphone in a quick demo video at Lenovo’s Tech World 2022 event.
The demo shows the Moto phone’s screen being stretched and retracted, with a moving wallpaper to match the press of the side button, reports The Verge. (Also Read: Apple Introduces Next-Gen iPad Pro With M2 Chip, Starting At Rs 81,900)
The video only shows the front of the device, and the screen appears to be wrapping around the phone while rolling up. (Also Read: Apple Introduces New iPad In 4 Colors, Starting At Rs 44,900)
As far as prototypes go, the concept seems to be on the “operational” side of the spectrum – there are battery and cellular indicator icons on the screen.
The report mentions that the rolling display is a flexible OLED panel, which measures 6.5 inches when expanded and retracts to “just over” 4 inches.
The company did not provide any further details on whether it will ever hit the market.
The report says that in the later segment of the video, Lenovo showed off another concept device – a laptop with a rolling display.
The video shows that the laptop’s screen extends upward, which provides a ton of extra, vertical screen real estate.
Meanwhile, this week, the company has launched an affordable smartphone – Moto e22s – in India that comes at Rs.8,999.
