LG has reportedly registered a new device with a South Korean telecoms authority that, according to a Twitter-based leaker, is its first-gen rollable phone. Should this be the case, the OEM may be ready to release this new form-factor in 2021. It might prove a worthy alternative to phones such as the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 on its launch.

Rollable phones are an emerging alternatives to foldables, and currently exist as concept or prototype devices in the hands of OEMs such as OPPO, TCL and LG. Now, there is a new hint that the latter is getting them ready for consumers as well.

It comes in the form of a certification for a device called the LM-R910N, which, according to the leaker Tron (or @cozyplanes on Twitter), LG has had approved as an unlocked and carrier-locked phone in South Korea.

This tipster - who also broke the news that this OEM has a new, 16-inch Gram laptop in the works - asserts that it is Project B, the code-name for LG's first-gen rollable.

Assuming this new leak is accurate, it may be a sign that LG is gearing up to launch "Project B" some time in 2021. It may even be a sign that the OEM aims to be the first to get a extendable display device onto the market, beating others such as the OPPO X 2021 to the punch.

Should this be the case, it may be hoped that this new form-factor will not eventually meet the same fate as other innovative smartphones such as the G Flex series.
