After foldable smartphones, LG is inaugurating a new format, which promises to offer users “new different and attractive mobile experiences” . For this, the new LG Wing has two superimposed screens, and it is possible to switch to “Swivel” mode, by rotating the screen 90 ° clockwise.

LG Wing, the smartphone “exploring the unknown”?
When it is deployed, the smartphone thus makes it possible to discover new uses, such as the possibility of extending the same application on two screens or of displaying two
applications at the same time, each on a screen. For example, when watching YouTube on the LG Wing, the video plays on the main screen, while the second screen shows comments or the search bar.
The LG Wing is therefore based on a 6.8 ″ P-OLED main screen in 20.5: 9 format, and a 3.9 ″ secondary screen in G-OLED quality. The 32-megapixel front sensor is of the pop-up type, so as not to clutter the screen surface. The smartphone is powered by a Snapdragon 765 5G processor, coupled with 8 GB of RAM, not to mention 128 or 256 GB of storage.
On the photo side, the LG Wing has a triple sensor on the back, consisting of a 64-megapixel main module, and supported by two ultra-wide-angle 12 and 13-megapixel sensors. In photo mode, the second screen can serve as a dedicated editing palette, while the video or photo is displayed on the main screen. Despite its two screens, the LG Wing remains a relatively light smartphone, with 260 grams on the scale.
Finally, LG promises rock-solid reliability, including a hinge module with a hydraulic shock absorber that reduces the strain on the mechanism during
rotation of the main screen. The back of the main screen is covered with thermoplastic polyoxymethylene to make the rotation smoother and avoid scratching the second screen. Finally, the LG WING's hinge mechanism has been extensively tested, and promises to remain just as reliable after 200,000 rotations.
The Korean group explains that its LG Wing will be launched first in South Korea next month, then in certain markets in North America and Europe. It remains to know the price. If the concept is rather interesting on paper, it is difficult to know if this LG Wing will prove to be practical to use on a daily basis …
