A company spokesman said: “I can firmly deny that any such decision on future mobile products has been finalised.”
The denial comes in response to a report from Yonhap News that LG had reportedly told parts suppliers that the Rollable had been put on hold and that they could request a refund for their development efforts.
Denying that a final decision has been made is not quite the same thing as telling the world that Rollable is still coming in 2021. However, there is a general uncertainty that comes with designing, manufacturing, and shipping complicated electronics during a global pandemic.
Of course, the Yonhap News report could be sort of true.
LG also firmly denied a report in January that it was planning to exit the smartphone business, and Korean outlet TheElec wound up deleting that report, only to see LG turn around later and admit that it was indeed considering an exit from smartphones, even if the decision had not been formally decided.
