Lilbits: Motorola’s rollable phone, Asus’ art tablets and Sharp’s phone with a 1-inch image sensor


LG may have exited the phone business before the company had a chance to release the first phone with a rollable screen, and Oppo’s rollable phone may just be a concept, but rumor has it that at least one other major phone maker Is still plan to release a rollable phone.

Motorola is said to be early in the development of a phone with a screen that rolls down to give you more space when you need it and hides inside the body of the phone when you don’t. But unlike other rollables we’ve seen, that extra space isn’t horizontal, and you don’t get a tablet-sized screen. Instead, the phone rolls vertically, making the screen look taller. This matches the company’s approach to foldables.

If you’re still holding out hope for a horizontal roll, Samsung and TCL have shown off display tech that might make it possible… but neither company has yet committed to releasing a phone with a rollable display.

In other recent tech news around the web, Google released the first Android 13 beta for Android TV, Sharp has a new phone with a 1″ image sensor (but it’s only available in Japan ) and Asus has teamed up with artists Philip Colbert and Steven Harrington on some incredibly unusual Windows tablets.
