LG has recently confirmed that its upcoming device will indeed be called the LG Wing and that it will be revealed at its announcement event to be held on the 14th of September. It is believed that the upcoming phone from the company will feature with two screens in a swiveling form factor – as a recent teaser video also proceeded on to show what seems to be a sliding mechanism that can actually rotate into a T shape.
Moreover, in addition to the fact that the phone will make its way with swiveling screens, it has also been suggested that the device will indeed also have support for 5G and will also feature with a triple camera setup on the back that will include a 64MP main sensor. The phone will be running on a Snapdragon 7-series processor.
The LG wing will be LG’s first ever device to be launched under the company’s Explorer Project – a new mobile category that the company has termed as “discovering new ways to interact with mobile devices… and challenging established user norms.” LG further added to this by saying that the wing will “deliver a new and different form factor and mobile experience that would be impossible to create with conventional smartphones.”
Much has of course been made of the LG wing in recent times – ever since the rumors with respect to the upcoming smartphone started to gain pace. Indeed while other smartphone manufacturers such as Samsung, Huawei and Motorola have been following the suite of foldable smartphone devices, it seems that LG isn’t quite following the same suite as the company looks on to achieve something peculiar yet noticeable on its own ground.
How successful the LG Wing will be – only time will tell, but considering the fact that it will arrive with the same price tag that flagship smartphones come with these days and that too with a rather interesting design – it wouldn’t be too surprising to see the phone making rounds in the smartphone world.
