LG Wing arrives with swiveling two-screen experience

LG on Monday announced its first handset under the “Explorer Project”, the LG Wing. And just as the rumors told us, it features a unique two-screen experience.Currently there are two main ways that phone makers are working with dual displays. There’s the “two phone screens that make a tablet screen” approach and then there’s the “flip phone” design that opens to reveal a full-screen experience. The LG Wing is neither of those.The LG Wing features a 6.8-inch full HD OLED main display that swivels up to reveal a secondary 3.9-inch screen underneath. Resembling a Tetris T-block, it leads to unique use cases.The LG Wing is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor with 8GB RAM and 128GB/256GB storage options. A microSD expansion card slot allows for external media.The rear houses a 64-megapixel main camera, accompanied by a 12-megapixel wide-angle and 13-megapixel wide-angle camera. One is mounting in standard portrait orientation while the other is rotated 90 degrees. A 32-megapixel camera pops out for selfies on the front side of the phone.The hinge mechanism in LG WING has proven to be reliable even after 200,000 swivels – this averages out to about 100 motions every day for five years.Given its unique design, the LG Wing allows for some interesting camera modes. Grip Mode ignores accidental touches while recording video when the phone is opened. Gimbal Motion Camera Mode adds a joystick, lock, and follow controls on the secondary display.The design also allows for watching full-screen video content on the big display while messaging, commenting, and other features are available on the secondary screen.Other prominent features in the LG Wing include a 4,000mAh battery with wireless and Quick Charge 4.0 and an IP54 rating against dust and water.The LG Wing will be offered in Aurora Gray and Illusion Sky when it goes on sale. Pricing and exact availability has yet to be revealed. With that said, Verizon will have first dibs on the unique phone with AT&T, T-Mobile, and others following later.
