LG introduced its latest phone, the LG Wing. The phone is the first device released from LG̵7;s Explorer Project, the company’s “new mobile category aimed at discovering new ways to interact with mobile devices” and its way of focusing on challenging and evolving consumer technology.
The phone stands out from others released this year due to its unique and exciting form factor, which has a 6.8-inch 20.5: 9 FHD + P-OLED FullVision screen that swings out to reveal a 3.9- inch 1.15: 1 G-OLED screen under it. The main screen has no notches or bevels, and apps will be optimized for the phone, so you can rotate the phone in different directions to best use them.
The use case of the phone is seemingly limitless, like the ability to have a map on the main screen for navigation while driving and the smaller screen is released to take a call, watch a video on the main screen while accessing playback controls on the smaller one or play a racing game on the main screen, with your HUD on the smaller one.
The LG Wing has three rear cameras – an ultra-high resolution 64 MP, an ultra-wide 13 MP and an ultra-wide large pixel 12 MP camera – as well as a forward-facing 32 MP pop-up camera. It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G 5G mobile platform processor integrated with a Snapdragon X52 5G Modem RF system. It has Android 10, has a fingerprint sensor on the screen and supports fast charging and wireless charging. The LG Wings IP54 rating and 4000 mAh battery should also be able to keep up with your adventures.
This phone is not LG’s first strike in unusual form factors. With previous entries such as the LG Velvet, the dual screen LG G8X and LG V60, and even the LG VX9400 from 2008, it is no wonder why the Wing can take flight with such ease.
