LG teases smartphone with extendable, pull-out display

LG teases smartphone with extendable, pull-out display”

LG launched its first ever and unique dual screen smartphone as the part of its new Explorer project. In fact, it looks very similar to some of LG's patents for hybrid devices that we have seen in the past and is indicative that it may have something almost market-ready.

Of course, it can also be used to run two apps side by side: Play a mobile game on your main panel while streaming online to friends and fans using the second scenario, or read Twitter while streaming the latest football match. It is fitted with three rear-cameras - 64MP Ultra High-Resolution OIS Wide lens, 12MP Ultra Wide Big Pixel lens and 13MP Wide lens - that supports gimbal technology. At first glance it looks similar to the LG Velvet, until you press a button and the screen rotates 90 degrees into landscape orientation, and reveals another screen underneath. No need to go vertical. LG has chosen to use a pop-up mechanism for the smartphone's front camera.

The Wing also brings back a popular niche LG feature: the ability to record video with the front- and rear-facing cameras at the same time, so you can narrate your videos. LG says they've tested the hinge 200,000 times and the swivel proved to be "perfectly reliable".

LG is not new to two-screen smartphones in recent years, but the company has officially announced its bold journey as a dual-screen device in recent memory: the LG Wing.

With the main screen being swiveled, the gimbal camera enables users to capture moving objects while staying still by controlling the camera with a joystick-like button on the second screen.

The Wing is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G 5G mobile platform and the Snapdragon X52 5G Modem-RF system. Gimbal controls appear on the bottom screen while the top one is a viewfinder. Today's announcement will be the extremely primary step of the Explorer Project - LG's brand-new line of smart devices with distinct and yet untouched styles.

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. LG Wing will be launched in South Korea next month, but the quirky smartphone will arrive in North America (AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile) and Europe as well, we just don't know when exactly. Unfortunately, there is no information available regarding the device and the company has yet to divulge any finer details either.

The Wing also weighs 260g, which is only 20g more than the ROG Phone 3, 10g more than the Surface Duo and lighter than Samsung's Z Fold 2.
