LG’s next experimental smartphone could be called LG rollable
LG Rollable could be the name of the company’s next experimental rollable smartphone. LG has filed a trademark with the EUIPO (European Union Intellectual Property Office) for the name. Of course, a trademark does not mean that the company will use it for the name; you may just want to protect the term so that other brands can’t use it to describe their phones. The smartphone is expected to be the second in LG’s “Project Explorer”, after the LG Wing, and will launch in March 2021, according to a recent report. The trademark doesn’t reveal much else, but it potentially gives us the name of the next phone.
The request was filed on November 2 by Mitscherlich, a German company that has filed transactions on behalf of LG also in the past. The name chosen by LG seems to be quite straightforward and self-explanatory. The app mentions that LG Rollable is a smartphone, but doesn’t offer any further details.
A render of the smartphone had emerged earlier this week, showing a roll-up display that can be extended from both sides of the phone. The render was based on a patent that LG had filed for a phone with a flexible screen that can be rolled up in its case. The patent was filed with the USPO (United States Patent and Trademark Office) in August last year.
This will be the second smartphone under LG’s experimental “Project Explorer”. First, LG Wing, is a dual-screen smartphone with a rotating main screen that thrown out in September. Meanwhile, LG Rollable is expected to launch in March 2021.
The rollable smartphone was dubbed Project B and was scheduled for launch in June 2021, according to company sources. according to a report. In the same report, company sources had said that developing roll-up phones was relatively less complicated than folding phones.
