We’ve heard about the LG Wing a couple of times already earlier this year. Now, the company has officially unveiled the device with the full extent of its capabilities.
The LG Wing sports a 6.8-inch pOLED panel on its main display, which also has a fingerprint sensor underneath. When you swivel it off, this reveals the secondary 3.9-inch OLED screen. The company has tested the swivel motion to make sure it lasts for more than 200,000 times, which is equivalent to just over 100 motions daily for five years. This display will take over your notifications that usually get in the way during your fullscreen apps.
LG Wing didn’t have a visible front-facing camera, instead, it has a 32MP pop-up selfie camera, hidden at the top of the rear half. It detracts automatically when it detects that the phone is being dropped. At the back, it comes with a 64MP main shooter, a 12MP “Ultra Wide Big Pixel” camera, and a 13MP standard wide-angle shooter.
The phone also has the “Gimbal Motion Camera” feature which allows you to use the secondary display as a handle and delivers a suite of capabilities to the 12MP camera. This makes use of what LG calls the Hexa Motion Stabiliser to help stabilise video footage. This is done via AI with the wide-angle cameras.
LG Wing’s core specs are a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chipset with 5G, 8GB of RAM, a choice of either 128GB or 256GB of internal storage, and a 4000mAh battery. The storage can be extended up to 2TB with microSD card. The device also comes with an IP54 rating.
Pricing and availability
LG says the Wing will be launching next month in South Korea, followed by key markets in North America and Europe. Unfortunately, there’s no mention of when it will appear elsewhere, including our shores. Prices are missing as well for both storage configurations.
