According to what is shown on the web, it seems that Samsung is planning to release its first rollable smartphone “Galaxy Z Roll” for the international market.
Samsung Galaxy Z Roll could soon be launched as the South Korean company’s first rollable smartphone. In fact, the company is already the leading brand in the foldable phone industry. Now the South Korean giant is working on a product with a different form factor to launch a rollable display device.

Samsung Galaxy Z Roll could be around the corner
Ahead of SID 2021, Samsung Display unveiled OLED screens for S-Foldable, Slidable, and Rollable devices. However, the displays were revealed by the Display division and not the consumer electronics section.
Now, Samsung Electronics has filed a trademark with the European Union Intellectual Property Office ( EUIPO ) for the name Samsung Galaxy Z Roll, according to LetsGoDigital. As the name indicates, this will be the company’s first rollable terminal.
The South Korean giant has used non-traditional form factors under its Galaxy Z series and continues to do the same with the rollable-unit phone. The trend continues for Samsung to create simple names for devices like the Galaxy Z Fold for the foldable smartphone and Galaxy Z Flip for the flip clamshell phone.
At the moment, not much is known about Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Z Roll-rollable smartphone. However, we may be hearing more about the device in August when the company will unveil the Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3.
LG was also working on a rollable smartphone called Rollable, a device that the South Korean OEM unveiled last year. However, the device has been discontinued as LG is exiting the smartphone business.
OPPO also presented a smartphone with a rollable display called OPPO X 2021, but it was presented as a Concept Smartphone. The Chinese company is unlikely to plan to launch the smartphone in the short term. Given how things are going, it seems more likely that Samsung will be the first company to announce a rollable display commercial phone.
