LG is reportedly working on a crazy new dual screen phone that swivels horizontally
With an growing array of OEM smartphones launching dual-screen devices last year, South Korean maker LG even hopped on the bandwagon with the introduction of the LG V50. However, the company's solution to a dual-screen smartphone wasn't anything like the Samsung Galaxy Fold or the Huawei Mate X. Instead of a foldable panel, the company introduced an optional dual-screen adapter to the LG V50, which was later also provided with the G8X ThinQ and the V60 ThinQ. Now, it seems like LG is aiming to drop the dual-screen adapter in favour of a modern, more futuristic design.
According to a recent article from the Korean publication ETNews, the firm is currently working on a new smartphone called LG Wing, which is supposed to enter the market in the second half of this year. Unlike current dual-screen folding products, the Wing includes a second 4-inch monitor concealed under the main 6.8-inch monitor that can be reached by moving the main display to location.
As you can see in the picture above, the second screen on the LG Wing focuses on the the enjoyment of information by encouraging you to use the keyboard without obstructing the material on the main monitor. In addition , the second screen can also be used in the portrait orientation to display related information while you are working on the main display. Like the recently launched LG Velvet, the forthcoming LG Wing is anticipated to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 700 Series processor with 5 G capabilities. The unit will be fitted with a triple camera system on the rear, a 64MP main sensor, and the rest of the specifications will be compatible with LG's 'consumer luxury' business strategy.
In order to highlight its premium profile, the LG Wing is also expected to come with a customization feature that will enable buyers to choose the color of their unit. As stated earlier, the product is projected to enter the market in the second half of this year with a price tag of close to 1 million won (~816 dollars).
