LG Knows When To Fold ‘Em, Knows When To Roll ‘Em
CES 2021 is swinging along virtually with a large variety of products being shown off, though sadly we can’t get our hands on them like we would during a more normal time. One reveal, which one suspects would still not be hands on is the LG Rollable, a phone with a resizable screen. It isn’t exactly something you roll up and shove in your pocket, instead it behaves more like a projector screen or a power window. At the push of a button the Rollable extends the size of the screen from a phone to a tablet or vice versa, giving you a larger surface to work with. We’ve seen this device teased a few times, but as we have actually seen foldable phones hit the market it is possible that a working demo model could be released for reviewers to take a peek at.
If an extendable screen is still not enough for you, Samsung has been showing off a MicroLED TV which is capable of showing you four different shows simultaneously. The new TV will be available in of 110″, 99″, and 88″ with the largest size running a cool $156,000 to pick up, but can function as four 55″ TVs so you can “keep up with multiple sports at once, or stream a walkthrough while playing a video game“. It is amazing expensive, but looks to offer the same quality image as OLED without many of the drawbacks.
Last up is a virtual screen, as Lenovo shows off their new AR glasses, the ThinkReality A3. The Snapdragon 800 powered glasses can connect to a PC or certain Motorola smartphones and will provide you the use of “multiple, large virtual monitors” and to “use Windows software tools and applications.” There is still the question of how you might interface with the applications on those screens but we shouldn’t have to wait too long as the ThinkReality A3 should be on sale this summer.
Keep your eyes tuned for more.
