A rollable display is basically a type of screen that can be rolled up like a scroll without the image or text being distorted using various technologies, such as electronic ink, Organic LCD, and OLED. This technology is nothing new, as rollable displays using electronic paper date way back to CES 2006 where Philips showcased a prototype. Now, an LG patent reveals that the company could be working on a rollable display that doubles as a touchscreen tablet. Read more for the patent, additional pictures and information.

LG G8X ThinQ
Could a dual-screen smartphone actually be better than a folding one? LG thinks so, and that’s why they’ve unveiled the G8X ThinQ at IFA 2019. Simply put, it consists of two separate displays connected by a hinge mechanism via a USB-C link. Both displays measure 6.4″ and boast a resolution of 2,340 x 1,080 pixels, while a 2.1-inch screen in the back makes sure you don’t miss any notifications. There’s also an ambient light sensor that automatically adjusts the contrast to maximize image details and reduce eye strain. Read more for a hands-on video, additional pictures and information.

Simply put, you can fold this device twice, turning it into a full-sized tablet when fully unfolded. Read more for additional pictures and information.
