LG announced the LG Wing – the company’s fist Explorer Project device – through an online launch event in Seoul, South Korea. The Wing has a completely new, swiveling screen design which rotates clockwise.
The rotating mode changes the portrait screen into a landscape mode and will reveal another small screen. LG Wing’s main screen comes with a 6.8-inch P-OLED display (2460 x 1080) without any notches or punch-holes. Similarly, the second screen underneath the main screen has a 3.9-inch G-OLED display (1240 x 1080).
When the phone is in the swivel mode (the screen is twisted), users can use the main screen for primary purpose and the secondary screen for using other apps for multitasking. Watching videos on the Wing, for instance, is more convenient as all the media controls are shifted to the secondary screen while the main screen plays the video.
For photos and videos, the LG Wing has 3 rear cameras and a pop-up selfie camera on the front. The primary shooter at the back is a 64-megapixel main camera, 12-megapixel ultra-wide and 13-megapixel wide-angle camera. The pop-up selfie camera is a 32-megapixel lens.
The LG Wing is also the first smartphone in the world to add a “Gimbal Motion” feature. This means photographers can now capture steady and smooth pictures/videos from the phone. It is because the second screen turns into a convenient grip and forms a stand like structure. LG’s announcement also mentioned that the Wing will feature a collection of advanced imaging solutions including Timelapse Control, Voice Bokeh and ASMR Recording.
The handset is equipped with Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G 5G Mobile Platform processor. The chipset features an integrated Snapdragon X52 5G Modem-RF System for 5G compatibility. The power unit is a 4000mAh battery. Available in Aurora Gray and Illusion Sky finishes, the Wing comes in 8GB RAM/128GB storage and 8GB RAM/256GB storage variants. LG hasn’t revealed pricing and availability details just yet.
