😁 Good day, and welcome back to Power Daily. I have some apple news. I noticed some lonely friends in our fruit basket this morning, so I’m thinking of making an apple French muffin for tea later. excited! Until then, let’s talk about small phones.
Rollable screens: the tiny phone’s savior?

We’ve seen quite a few foldable phones over the years. It was an exciting trend by Rollable from LGAnd Oppo He soon jumped on board, too. What’s interesting about coordination? Well, Rita Argues Rotatable screens could be the big break small smartphones have been waiting for.
- Every manufacturer wants to cram the biggest screen possible into the smallest form factor.
- This really means it Small modern smartphones something rare.
- However, one exciting solution seems to be slowly emerging: rotatable screens.
Why rotatable screens make sense
- The nature of the rollable phone allows for a relatively small form factor.
- When more screen is required, the device can be expanded as needed.
- However, most of the time you will get a compact device.
- This is no more evident than with Motorola Razr.
- The company’s new foldable phone mimics its older slide-phone siblings. But instead of revealing the T9’s keyboard, the new phone’s screen expands vertically to give you more screen.
- This increases the screen size from five inches to 6.5 inches.
- This design, Rita notes, “completely changes the equation for small phones.”
- “The first time I saw the display roll out, it felt magical. It’s been a while since I’ve felt such a sense of awe with smartphones. However, it also felt completely rational—why haven’t we thought about this before?” she notes.
- while foldable Like the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 It can be said that it does the same thing. There are two problems with this design: the thickness and the usability of the external display.
So, are foldable phones going mainstream right now?
- no not yet.
- Rotatable phones seem to solve the problems that smaller phones have, but the format is yet to be decided upon.
- Durability remains a major concern, with the motorized drum system and screen being weak points.
- It’s also unclear how manufacturers will fit a large battery into a device that needs display space.
- Once these issues are resolved and components meet form factor requirements, we could see a future full of miniature coils.
Finally, while Everything everywhere at once and All Quiet on the Western Front cleaned up at the Oscars, Brendon Fraser got the nod. The Mummy legend won Best Actor for his role in The Whale, and the internet is so understandable, very happy with this.
