No proper details are available as of now, but you can very well guess how the technology will work. As the folding display folded, the rollable phone will have the display expand.

The rollable display will come with the same material used for the original Galaxy Fold. So, the Samsung Rollable Phone will feature a plastic screen similar to the Galaxy Fold. It will have a specific length, which will expand.

It has an expanding button on the side of the chassis, and it will make the standard 6-inch display unroll to a larger 8-inch screen.
