Japanese electronics giant Sony has been in and out of the smartphone game for the past couple of years now. While the budget and mid-range segments for the company have been underperforming, the flagship Xperia models are keeping the brand afloat. Looking to get back into the game, Sony means serious business with its plans to launch a smartphone with a rollable display.
If you recall, the foldable smartphone segment started picking up this year, but slowly lost steam as companies like Samsung and Huawei delayed their phone releases indefinitely. However, if what Sony is promising turns out to be true, we could be witnessing something a level ahead.
A tweet by reputed leakster Max J suggests that Sony is testing a rollable display with LG Electronics, which has already showcased a rollable TV display at CES 2019. It is expected that LG will be producing a smaller screen for Sony smartphones, a task that hasn't yet been accomplished by any other brand.
Apart from a rollable display, this smartphone could feature specifications including a Snapdragon 855 SoC, rear camera with 10X optical zoom, a 3220mAh battery, and the Qualcomm X50 5G modem.
