LG’s crimpable phones are listed in a database on the Korean carrier Intranet. According to Twitter whistleblower @Cozyplanes, the devices are currently registered with Korean operators’ internal databases. The model of the device is LM-RN910N, and the unlocked version is OMD-Lm-R910N.
The specs of LG’s crimpable phone are rumored to include a 7.4-inch scalable screen with a resolution of 2,428 x 1,080 pixels (20:9), a video resolution of 2,428 x 1,366 pixels (16:9) and a productivity mode of 2,428 x 1,600 pixels (3:2).
In addition, LG’s crimpable phone is rumored to have a 4200mAh battery, qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 888 processor and 16GB of RAM.
Cozyplanes also revealed details about how the equipment works. The device can be expanded on either side, increasing the screen size by up to 100%. However, the top center box does not expand with the device. LG will add a flexible middle frame that can be extended to cover the exposed edges of the screen and then retract when the phone is turned off.
LG is not the only company developing technology with a scrollable display. Samsung and manufacturers such as TCL and OPPO have filed patents for smartphones with scrolling display capabilities.
