- Samsung Display plans to roll out its first rollable and sliding displays later this year.
- It is unclear if Samsung will be launching a phone with Samsung Display's rollable panel this year.
- LG's "Rollable" is expected to be the first phone with a rollable screen to hit the market.
Samsung Display will begin producing its first rollable and slidable displays this year. The information was revealed by Samsung Display senior vice president Kwon-Young Choi during earnings call on Thursday (via The Elec).
Choi added that Samsung Display is also looking to expand its leadership in the foldable space with newer small- to mid-sized displays. Sadly, the executive did not confirm if we can expect the first rollable phone from Samsung to hit the market this year. Although Samsung hasn't confirmed any plans of launching a rollable phone, reports out of South Korea had claimed last year that the tech giant is aiming to release its first phone with a rollable screen in 2022.
While it isn't clear if Samsung will launch a rollable phone this year, LG has already confirmed that it is working on a rollable phone called "Rollable." However, the future of its smartphone business remains uncertain at this time. In case LG decides to quit the smartphone market or sell the unit to another company, the "Rollable" may not see the light of day.

Fixing the FCC after a former Verizon lawyer and lobbyist ran it for years isn't going to be easy. But Jessica Rosenworcel has some ideas, and so far I like what I hear.
Maybe I'm alone here, but I have fond memories of the OnePlus X phone, and I'd love to see the second version of it sooner than later. Perhaps it could be reborn as part of the Nord lineup?
Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S20 FE and the device is sure to turn plenty of heads for the next few months.
