End of an Era. I Love LG from mobile phones to Home Appliances. Sadden to hear that LG is out of Mobile Business. I'll always miss LG mobile. I still have LG G3 bought in 2014.

B please the phone was already cheaper cause it didn't have a screen that just eats the battery, and the feature would probably get implemented in the next generation. Fact LG timed everything wrong and didn't have a steady income of money, like having a true flagship that just has the top reliable and least noticeable improvements. Even if they focused just on the things they were good at like video and other camera bits they would've been saved. But sadly they now have to exit the market. Hope they'll re enter it in the next 1 to 2 years, cause without them innovation will slow down no matter how gimmicky their stuff was. I know they can't undercut Xiaomi but if they present a phone with everything good and one awesome thing, that could change everything in their favor. Great build, flagship soc, a camera that even DXOMark would say was the top (even if their numbers mean nothing), and a top spec screen with a reasonable price close to Xiaomi and could be rendered as a success.

The V60 when it was launched last year only cost $799, which is a whopping $200 cheaper than the cheapest Samsung Galaxy S20 5G. Even if you opt for its optional DualScreen case, it's still $100 cheaper than that Samsung, and I still has that super useful 3.5mm audio jack with Quad DAC. No way in h*ll I'd go wireless ever again, not a chance!

G4 & V10 was the worst LG devices, G5, G6, G7, G8, v20, v30, v40, v50, are excellent since they truly retain what makes high-end phones 'premium' (quadDAC, 3.5mm jack, excellent camera without ToF/Macro gimmick, durable phone with IP rating, FM radio, microSD slot, excellent RAM management which never lag despite 'low' RAM (4GB when Chinese ones already 6GB, 6GB when Chinese ones already 8GB-10GB)

Why is it sad? They have been shovelling out garbage for a while. The LG G4 was the last really good high selling smartphone. Their TVs are amazing. I have had top end Samsung TVs and the LG is amazing. We have a 32, 45 and 55 inch LG TV in the house and they're all just brilliant. The smartphone market passed them by.

Anonymous, 06 Apr 2021*sighs* nokia morph *sighs*Yeah That concept was even cooler than this

Problem is the rollable screen internal structure take too many room inside the phone.
I talked with some OPPO's engineers before,they make a rollable screen phone by using screen from BOE.But it only have 2000mah battary.
7.3in screen+2000mah battary equal to out of power in 2 hours.
We need a battary revolution,at least make a 4000mah battary at the same size,then we cam have rollable.screen phone come true

This whole thing makes a lot of fans sad. It is sad they choose to exit. LG is a capable company, just look at their TV's man, they are the king! I wanted to see the rollable phone announced, I wanted to see a Wing 2 this year.
With LG gone, probably we can forget Quad Dac Audio, a category in which LG was the king. No smart phone had better audio. Many will miss LG.

Since LG still has its display and TV division, they can ask them to build a working prototype or concept of it as a blueprint for future models.
