October 6th, foreign media WMPU reported that Samsung is one of the earliest manufacturers to adopt the foldable screen smartphone shape design concept, but in addition, the South Korean technology giant is still exploring other concepts, such as lift Cover folding design and rollable display shape design. Although clamshell and foldable shape designs already exist, Samsung is reportedly planning to launch its first ever smart phone with a rollable display next year. However, it is still unclear when Samsung will launch its first curling smartphone.
This is not surprising, because Samsung privately showed potential buyers a smart phone with a curled display at last year’s CES . Since then, rumors about Samsung’s roll-up display phones have spread. The company also applied for a patent to show what the new shape design might look like.

Naijatechnews is informed that Samsung is not the only company that is developing a smart phone with a roll-up display. LG also wants to join the competition, planning to launch its first roll-up smartphone next year. The company has also applied for several patents to demonstrate the design of the smartphone. At present, we cannot really say which company will launch the world’s first smartphone with innovative display technology.
Regardless of whether the world’s first roll-up display mobile phone belongs to Samsung, LG or some other company, a new shape design does make consumers a lot of curiosity. If this technology can successfully impress buyers, then use this first. The brand of this technology will often get the most satisfactory return. But on the other hand, if the roll-up display phone suffers the same fate as the Galaxy Fold, then the hype will quickly fade, which will greatly affect sales.
