Apple seeks patent for devices with roll-up displays – iRoll?


Re: Nokia

Don't know about Nokia but Samsung most definitely did. I saw it in the early 2010's. Oppo have also shown one, pre covid from memory. I have also seen a roll up display phone from another manufacturer recently.

Re: A wireless future?

Rubbish - the 5G "non-standalone" specs are pretty much done and will be finalized before year end. First commercial deployments of 5G will start from 2018.
