Though numerous big-name manufacturers have been experimenting with folding smartphone models, LG has decided to take its latest flagship smartphone in a slightly different direction, developing a cutting-edge model with a 6.8” POLED display that than pivot 90-degrees to reveal a second 3.9” GOLED screen.
Dubbed the LG Wing, the new flagship phone features a second-generation Qualcomm Snapdragon processor and Ai engine, and a 4,000Ah battery that’s just a tad bigger than the cell in the latest iPhone Pro Max. On top of a 32MP pop-up selfie camera, the Wing packs three-forward facing cameras: an ultra-wide 12MP, 64MP ultra-HD camera, and second ultra-wide 13MP unit, all backed by 4K recording, video depth control, an AI night mode, time-lapse control, and a pro-grade stabilizing built-in gimbal. Without actually using it, it’s difficult to get a sense of the benefits of the supplementary display, though it does look to offer more control when filming. Making the Wing all the more impressive is the fact it’s been Mil-STD-810G-tested for vibration, temperature shock, humidity, drop-testing, and numerous other abusive metrics. Pricing has yet to be released, though the LG Wing Smartphone is expected to sell for around $1,000.
