LG may have gotten out of the phone business before the company got a chance to launch the first phone with a rollable display, and Oppo’s rollable phone may be little more than a concept, but rumor has it that at least one other major phone maker does still plan to bring a rollable phone to market.

Motorola is said to be early in early stages of developing a phone with a display that unrolls to give you more space when you need it, and hides inside the body of the phone when you don’t. But unlike other rollables we’ve seen, that extra space isn’t horizontal and you don’t get a tablet-sized display. Instead, the phone rolls vertically, making the screen taller. It’s in keeping with the company’s approach to foldables.

If you’re still holding out hope for a horizontal roller though, Samsung and TCL have been showing off display technology that could make that possible… but neither company has committed to releasing a phone with a rollable display yet.

In other recent tech news from around the web, Google has released the first Android 13 beta for Android TV, Sharp has a new phone with a 1″ image sensor (but it’s only available in Japan), and Asus has partnered with artists Philip Colbert and Steven Harrington on some incredibly unusual looking Windows tablets.

Here’s a roundup of recent tech news from around the web.
