LG announced the company’s unique dual-screen Smartphone LG WING under its new Explorer Project called as “WING”. This phone sports a 6.8-inch P-OLED FullVision main screen and a 3.9 inch FHD+ hidden Second Screen. It is powered by Octa Core Snapdragon 765G 7nm EUV Mobile Platform with up to 8GB RAM and runs Android 10. The phone also comes with an In display fingerprint sensor.
The second hidden screen let you use the phone in Swivel Mode in which the entire front of the phone rotates clockwise 90 degrees allowing users to interact with the Second Screen while content plays uninterrupted on the Main Screen. The Multi App feature allows users to create shortcuts for pairs of apps they typically use together. Swivel Mode can also prove handy when driving, allowing users to follow map directions on the Main Screen reserving the Second Screen for calls. The second screen also doubles as a grip when the Main Screen is in landscape mode. With Grip Lock activated, the Second Screen displays useful information such as time and date and ignores accidental touches.
The LG Company said “The hinge module with Hydraulic Damper reduces stress on mechanism when the Main Screen is rotated and the Thermoplastic polyoxymethylene is applied to the back of the Main Screen to facilitate smoother swiveling and to prevent scratches on the Second Screen. And, the hinge mechanism has been tested for 200,000 swivels.
LG has partnered with YouTube or Tubi on the preinstalled NAVER Whale browser, the video plays on the Main Screen while the Second Screen displays comments or the search bar. Rave and Ficto platforms can play videos full screen while simultaneously interacting with other viewers via the Second Screen. It can also be used as Media Controller in compatible video platforms.
The LG WING phone features triple rear cameras a 64MP main camera with OIS, 12MP Ultra Wide Big Pixel Gimbal mode camera and 13MP Wide-angle camera. The Gimbal mode turns the phone’s Second Screen into a convenient grip, providing the stability needed to capture clearer shots and smooth video footage in horizontal mode with one hand. On the front side it has a 32MP pop-up camera, which retracts when the phone is dropped. The phone weighs 260 grams due to the second screen, even though the phone packs a 4000mAh battery with support for fast charging as well as wireless charging.
