Could 2021 be the year of rollable phones? It’s possible, as not only has LG revealed the LG Rollable, but now TCL has given us a closer look at a rollable phone it has in the works – as well as confirming that it will launch a phone with a flexible display this year.

Stefan Streit, general manager of global marketing for TCL’s phone business, said as much to CNET, but wouldn’t confirm whether this phone was foldable or rollable.

As such, we suspect it will probably be a foldable phone, since a number of companies already sell them – most notably Samsung with the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2. On top of which TCL itself showed off a foldable phone concept over a year ago, so it’s had plenty of time to turn it into a commercial product.

The biggest story of CES 2021 has arguably been the LG Rollable smartphone, which we saw for the first time in a short teaser trailer. That doesn’t mean there haven’t been some other strong contenders for the CES limelight, though.

Speaking of rollables, we’ve been hearing that the launch of the rollable Signature Series OLED R has been imminent for a few trade shows now, though, so don’t be surprised if LG makes the same announcement at CES 2021.
