LG 2022 Concept Phone Demoed

On the just completed KDrama series – “Tomorrow With You”, LG showed us a rather interesting piece of future technology. While everyone’s eyes are on the Samsung’s Note 8 and its almost bezel-less design and impending release, here we have a not so subtle hint at technology that might just be under development by the Korean competitor.

! Some spoilers might be inferred from the images to follow so if you have not yet watched the final episode, stop reading now !

It appears first at the gallery held by So Ri the friend of the female protagonist, Ma Rin:

They’re watching what appears to be a Youtube Live of a person (Secretary Hwang) talking about predictions that were leaked online. The branding is very visible and we don’t see any of it (phone brands) while the series was ongoing. The phone appears to be a curved glass model, fully transparent and without any side bezels.

It reappears at the residence of the male protagonist Yoo So Joon on a table upon receiving an email notifiction. It starts off in standby and comes to life with the alert.


This model is flat, unlike the previous one. Looking at it frame by frame, we could see some bleeding of the image here so it might have really been an image map on a planar surface that gets tracked.

Towards the end, we see more of it in action used inside a car and the final conversation between the lovers; once again there’s amazing tracking happening here – if it really is a mapped image only. The transparencies and the projection of the light are all too finely thought of.

This is for both the flat and curved version.

It’s a very possible scenario and what gets me is that the brand wont simply put their name there would they? It might have been an extremely expensive product placement for a non existent design, but then again this is broadcast and movie magic still applies here… What do you guys think?
