San Francisco: Global smartphone brand Motorola has showcased its rollable smartphone in a quick demo video at the Lenovo's Tech World 2022 event.
The demo shows the moto phone's screen extends and retracts, with a moving wallpaper to match with the press of the side button, reports The Verge. (Also read: Apple introduces next-gen iPad Pro with M2 chip, starts at Rs 81,900)

As far as prototypes go, this concept appears to be on the "operational" side of the spectrum -- there are battery and cellular indicator icons on the screen.
The rolling display is a flexible OLED panel, measuring 6.5 inches when extended and retracting down to "just over" 4 inches, the report mentioned.
The company did not provide any further details on whether it will ever reach the market or not.
In a later segment of the video, Lenovo showed off another concept device -- a laptop with a rolling display, the report said.
The video shows that the laptop's screen extends upwards, providing a ton of additional, vertical screen real estate.
Meanwhile, this week, the company has launched an affordable smartphone -- moto e22s -- in India that comes for Rs 8,999.
