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.

LG Electronics is a pioneer in rollable displays as it showcased and launched the world’s first TV with rollable display at CES 2019 this year. (IANS)

Google Pixel fans can expect a brighter camera and beefed up processing power in the upcoming Pixel 4 XL, according to new leaked images of a pre-release Pixel 4 XL provided by Vietnamese phone shop D Store Mobile, the media reported.

The primary rear camera will reportedly snap shots with a brighter f/1.73 aperture. Last year’s Pixel 3 had an aperture of f/1.8.

“Leaks of the upcoming camera app suggest that the phone will shoot in 16:9 by default so that photos can take up the entire camera screen, despite the sensor remaining 4:3. The effect is similar to what Apple is doing on the iPhone 11 models, which take advantage of the phone’s extra wide-angle lens to fill the screen,” The Verge reported on Saturday.

The details of the telephoto camera aren’t available as of now but it can be safely presumed there would be significant improvements to low-light photos and close-ups.

The speedy 90Hz OLED screen remains the highlight, but one will also get a Snapdragon 855 processor with 6GB RAM, a 3,700mAh battery (on the XL) and 128GB of UFS storage on at least one model, according to Engadget. (IANS)
