【如果电视卷曲了会怎样】

【如果电视卷曲了会怎样】LG多年来一直在试验柔性显示器,不像传统电视那样将柔性OLED面板安装到玻璃片上,LG将显示器安装在可以滚动的柔性物质上。据该公司称,该套装可以不间断地滚动和展开50,000次。此外,LG还将这一概念应用于智能手机,因为这样的手机实际上可以卷起,而不是像Royole和三星展示的折叠设备那样。

LG is experimenting with rollable smartphones

LG, the company behind the mind-bendingly cool rollable television, is looking to bring the same flexible display tech to smartphones, according to one of the company's top executives.The CTO of the Korean electronics company confirmed in an interview with Tom's Guide that the company is experimenting with rollable and foldable phones.

"We are exploring many different form factors for phones, including foldable and rollable," LG CTO IP Park said.

"Because display technology has grown so much that it can make it into very flexible form factors. And with 5G, if the market requires much bigger screens, we'll need to fold it or roll it. So we'll explore."

LG isn't the first company to look at new form factors for phones. Samsung recently showed off a prototype for a foldable phone, which should make its debut in the first half of this year. Chinese company Royole also showed off a foldable phone, the FlexPai, but it's currently only available in China.

While not necessarily surprising, LG's entry into the space is good news for anyone excited about making foldable phones a reality. The company has been experimenting with flexible displays for years, culminating with the reveal of the LG Signature OLED TV R, a 65-inch TV that rolls up when not in use.

That trick, which you can see in action in the video above, is possible thanks to some clever engineering. Instead of mounting the flexible OLED panel onto a piece of glass like a traditional TV, LG has mounted the display on a flexible substance that allows it to roll. The set can roll and unroll up to 50,000 times without breaking, according to the company.

The thought of LG applying that same concept to smartphones is particularly intriguing, as such a phone could actually be rollable as opposed to the fold-up devices Royole and Samsung have shown off.

While it's not clear whether that type of rollable tech is even viable in a smartphone form factor, it's yet another sign that foldable and rollable phones are more than just a passing fad.
