LG Announces Wing 5G Smartphone


So far, LG is only saying Wing 5G will launch in South Korea in October, with a North American release coming afterwards.

"WING is completely different from any other smartphone on the market". LG Wing is very unique, and it allows users to switch seamlessly between Basic Mode and Swivel Mode.

"Swivel Mode can also prove handy when driving, allowing users to follow map directions on the Main Screen reserving the Second Screen for calls, which on other phones would cover the map", LG said. Or you can see the images in your phone's image gallery on the main screen and access the image controls on the smaller screen. It also eases the video editing process as you can now use two screens to edit on one and view your cuts on the other.

The South Korean company mentions that is the first device that's part of the Explorer Project, an initiative that aims " Although it feels that LG Wing is being released on the market as a concept phone, the fact that it will be available nearly everywhere makes us believe that it's more than that. There's also a 32MP selfie camera that pops out from the body of the LG Wing, and you can choose to record video with both the front cam and a rear camera simultaneously.

The company has partnered with a number of platforms to integrate support for the dual-screen setup, including YouTube, Rave, and Ficto. The main screen has a 20.5:9 aspect ratio and 395ppi of pixel density. There's a 64-megapixel main camera, a 13-megapixel "regular" ultrawide, and the aforementioned 12-megapixel "gimbal mode" ultrawide that's dedicated to the landscape mode.

In terms of the camera, the phone has a 32-megapixel pop-up camera.

To maximize the advantage of the form factor, LG has adopted the gimbal camera feature for the first time on any mobile device.

The LG Wing is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G 5G mobile platform that is coupled with 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage space, which can be expanded further using a microSD card of up to 2TB space.

The most innovative use of the Wing's Second Screen is the way it works in tandem with the phone's triple rear cameras, essentially turning the Wing into a portable vlogging camera.

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 company is scheduled to announce their next-gen smartphone soon, the LG Wing, but ahead of the announcement are a bunch of leaked images that show what we can expect. LG also touts that the Wing offers IP54 water and dust resistance.
