LG is not giving up on the smartphone market despite the fact that they have no flagships that currently competes with Apple iPhone 11 or Samsung Galaxy S11 devices. The company is working on rotating and rollable smartphones which consists of two displays that you can twist and turn in multiple directions.
According to inside sources, the company has identified that pricing will play a huge part in encouraging people to adopt the new innovation. Samsung and Motorola has priced their phones as high as $2,000 that deters even the most ardent technology enthusiast to invest their money. Instead, the future of phones according to LG will be bit more affordable, probably around the $1000 mark but will no longer have the slab design.
LG Mobile is looking at lots of research and development that will enable them to compete on their own grounds. They are not keen on making an iPhone competitor or the camera prowess of a Samsung Galaxy flagship device. Instead, the company is planning to launch a phone with two individual displays.
Similar to how Blackberry phones of the past and some other notepad devices had a dedicated keyboard with a display on top, this will be a dual display phone. The concept is somewhat similar to what Microsoft unveiled and also termed as more feasible from a technological viewpoint. Users will be able to twist and turn the display in different directions based on their activity such as watching movies, typing an e-mail or playing a game.
In other words, it would look a lot like the Nintendo 3DS gaming console but will focus on being an all-screen smartphone. If done without technical glitches and at a moderate price point, this could easily become the best smartphone in the next few years. LG Mobile is planning to make some prototype announcements and is expected to hit $800 as the pricing for this unnamed, undisclosed smartphone.
