With what could purportedly be called the “G Pad 5”, South Korean tech major LG might be looking to revive its tablet business, two years after getting out of the game.

Not only has LG been out of the tablet game for over two years, but the Snapdragon 821 chipset just seems too old to even be available at this point of time.

However, references to the G Pad 5 and LM-T600, code named TF10, have been creeping up all over the place, GSMArena reported on Saturday.

South Korea-based LG is reportedly working on a new smartphone with a rollable display, news portal GizmoChina reported on Wednesday.

As per the report, LG Display had filed a patent with the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO) in October 2018. This patent was published in June 2019 and shows seven sketches of a device with a rollable display.

The renders created by LetsGoDigital shows that the display is so large that it can be rolled up twice around the device’s housing. It seems like one would be able to roll out this display as much as they want.

The company may launch this device specifically for viewing media like videos and movies and gaming.
