Samsung is likely to launch a new display form factor phone in 2021. The company is tipped to launch the Z Flip 2 and Z Fold 3 with a foldable display. Alongside, the South Korean giant could also launch a slidable/ rollable display phone in 2021. 

The tech behemoth’s display division’s vice president Choi Kwon-young said that the company’s first rollable and slidable displays are coming this year. We can expect the mobile division to adopt the new display tech when it is commercial-ready.

Samsung will join the likes of Oppo X 2021 and LG Rollable that come with a rollable/ sliding display. There is no word on the design elements or specifications of Samsung’s rollable phone.

The Oppo X 2021 is still a concept and is not ready for commercial sale. The LG Rollable, on the other hand, could launch later this year. 

The Galaxy Z Fold3 is likely to launch in August 2021. The company could also launch the Z Flip 2 in June or July 2021. There is no official word on the exact launch date at the time of writing this.
