LG's ignoble exit from the smartphone business made headlines last month. But an international electronics giant doesn't simply flip a switch and exit a market: there were plenty of in-development phones still floating around LG offices and factories when it decided to stop making them. According to one noted leaker, the company is selling off the last Android phones it will ever make straight to its employees.

These are LG's never to be released flagship phones for 2021

Late Sunday evening the final nail was driven into the coffin of LG's smartphone business, when the manufacturer declared it was halting development of all hardware.

There were some questions last month on whether the device would actually ship this year, and despite a spokesperson denying rumors surrounding the phone's cancellation, there's been no sure sign of when the Rollable might be available for purchase. Now the handheld has just passed certification from the Bluetooth SIG, hinting that the device might be in our grasp before you know it.

LG's smartphone division has been in trouble for a while, but that hasn't stopped the company from showing off some crazy new concepts like the Wing, and more recently, the LG Rollable. The latter looked like an incredible device, and was definitely something we were itching to get our hands on. Sadly, despite LG confirming plans to launch the innovative device later this year, new rumors suggest it may have been canceled. After this story was published, an LG spokesperson contacted The Verge to deny rumors of the cancelation, and the article has been updated to reflect this.

LG isn't making the best-selling smartphones these days, but we have to admit that the South Korean company does have a flair for thinking out of the box, as we've seen with unorthodox models like the LG Wing. While so far we haven't seen any phones with foldable displays like Samsung or Motorola produce, today we're checking out a possible step in that direction with the Rollable concept phone LG just teased at CES 2021.
