Since the device is only a prototype and will not be available commercially, we can expect the company to work more on the new technology and come up with a new smartphone with a rollable screen next year. However, whatever the company has revealed, does seem to be very promising. The company did confirm that they had to face many challenges while creating it and components like a proprietary roll motor, a new back panel support structure and a redesign of internal circuitry for the OLED panel were not easy to make.
