LG Wing with Rotating Secondary Display Official Unveiled-Specifications And Features

Published

on

We first heard about the LG Wing in the first half of the year, with murmurings that the firms was working on a whacky form factor. The idea of a phone with a smaller, second screen that pops out from the back sounded really outlandish, but it’s real and it’s finally here.

What should you expect from this offbeat smartphone? And is it a one-trick pony or does it have much more to offer? Here’s what you should know about the LG Wing.

LG Wing: At a glance

he LG Wing is the first phone in the manufacturer’s Explorer Project, promising innovative designs in the smartphone space. Of course, the dominant design feature here is the second screen that pops out from the back to sit at a perpendicular angle to the main screen. But another noteworthy design decision is a 32MP pop-up selfie camera, hidden at the top of the rear half.

Meanwhile, the LG Wing’s core specs are a Snapdragon 765G chipset with 5G, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and a 4.000 mAh battery.

The Wing packs a rather interesting rear camera setup, featuring a 64MP main camera, 13MP ultra-wide shooter, and a 12MP “Ultra Wide Big Pixel” camera. LG says you also have a “Gimbal Motion Camera” feature which allows you to use the second screen as a grip and delivers a suite of capabilities to the 12MP camera.

Some of the touted photo/video capabilities in this regard include a “joystick” for controlling the camera angle, a lock mode to reduce blur and judder, follow functionality for smoother video when on the go, a pan follow mode for horizontal movement, and a “first-person view mode” for “rhythmic and dynamic” movements.

LG Wing: The second screen explained

The phone can be used in a so-called Basic mode or in the Swivel mode, with the former seeing the 3.9-inch second screen hidden away and operating as a normal phone. Pop-out the screen for Swivel mode and LG says certain apps can be used across both screens or two apps can be used at once (one on each screen).

One early pre-release clip showed the main screen being used for GPS navigation while the second screen handled a call and music. A second pre-release video showed a racing game being played on the main screen and the game’s track layout on the smaller screen. LG also gave the example of watching a video on the main screen while texting on the second display or watching a video on the big display and getting media controls on the small screen.

There’s no word on the number of apps that currently support the LG Wing, but we will hopefully see adoption improve over time. For what it’s worth, the LG Second Screen accessory hasn’t seen much adoption from developers.

LG is also offering a Multi App feature that echoes a similar feature seen on the Galaxy Fold and Surface Duo lines. This will allow you to create a shortcut to quickly launch a desired pair of apps. If you want to watch a local video while browsing the web, you could theoretically create a shortcut to open your video player and browser in one go.

LG has focused on durability too, saying that the hinge mechanism should last for 200,000 swivels. This is equivalent to just over 100 motions daily for five years, LG says. It’s also added a special material to the back of the main screen to protect the second screen from being scratched and to enable smoother pop-outs.

LG Wing competition and alternatives

The LG Wing is unlike any other phone we’ve seen yet, so finding alternatives to it might be a tough endeavor.

In saying so, the Microsoft Surface Duo is similarly unique, while also offering two separate screens. The big difference here is that the Surface Duo offers two equally sized screens in a book-like arrangement, as opposed to the Wing’s big screen/little screen setup. Still, you’re also getting the ability to run an app on each screen or one app across both screens. You’re also getting the aforementioned app pair functionality to launch two specific apps at once. The Surface Duo’s $1,400 price tag and anemic spec sheet (no 5G, NFC, wireless charging, or multiple cameras) might be major deal-breakers though.

Another potential LG Wing alternative is the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2, also offering multitasking capabilities and two screens (a smartphone display on the outside and a tablet-sized screen on the inside). Toss in a 120Hz refresh rate for the main screen, nifty Flex Mode functionality, and capable cameras, and you’ve got a great foldable. Unfortunately, this comes at a cost of $2,000.

There’s nothing really like the LG Wing, with other foldable and the LG V60 perhaps coming closest.

The LG V60 could also be up your alley if you’re looking for a full-featured smartphone with an interesting trick up its sleeve. Like other recent LG flagships, the V60 has a Second Screen accessory that gives you a dual-screen foldable experience. This isn’t quite as polished and pocket-friendly as the Galaxy Z Fold 2, but you still have the ability to run an app on each screen or one across both displays. Best of all, it’s available for around $900 in the US, making it much cheaper than the aforementioned Samsung and Microsoft devices.

Pricing and availability

The LG Wing hasn’t received a specific US price just yet, although the firm told us it would cost roughly $1,000. The company says the phone will be available in the US via Verizon at first, followed by AT&T and T-Mobile. LG adds that pricing, availability, specs, and color options will vary by network.

Best economic mobile phones for January 2021

Nowadays mobile phones are used for several purposes. Some of them are important and some of them for time pass.

What are the main use of mobile phones?

  1. Make calls
  2. Send Messages
  3. Surf Websites
  4. Capture your best moments
  5. Enter into online and offline applications.

To fulfill this, and average person only need a phone with price around 10,000 RS. Selecting a phone with maximum features is a himalayan task for few. Here are my list of budget phones for the month of January 2021.

5. Realme C15 3GB 32 GB

Realme C15 only have 3GB RAM and 32GB internal memory. You might be wondering why this phone entered into my top 5 budget phone list for the new decade.

Following are key elements making the Realme C15 in my favorite list.

  • 6.52 inch HD Display
  • 13MP AI Quad Camera
  • 6000 mAh battery

Realme C15 can be preferred for those who are looking for a good photography experience and huge battery backup.

4. Redmi 9 Prime 4GB 64GB

Redmi 9 Prime outperformed Realme C15 with its 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory.

Other few features are

  • A descent 5020 mAh battery
  • 6.53 full HD Display
  • AI Quad Camera

3. Oppo A5 2020 3GB 64GB

Oppo A5 beaten Redmi 9 Prime with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 Octa core processor. I personally like Qualcomm processors over MediaTek.

Key other features include

  • 64 GB internal memory
  • Snapdragon 665 Octa Core Processor
  • 5000 mAh battery

2. Samsung Galaxy M11 3GB 32 GB

Even though the Galaxy M11 comes with 3GB RAM 32GB internal memory, the position of the selfi Camera given rank 2 in my list. Most of the under 10K range Smartphones comes with water drop Camera. Hence the punch hole Camera in the Galaxy M11 making it favorable for many. Moreover Samsung has more brand value than the other phones in the list. At least from my point for view. There is no need for an argument at this time.

Here are some of the other key features

  • Expandable memory support upto 512GB
  • Qualcomm octa core processor
  • 5000 mAh battery

1. Redmi 9 4GB 128 GB

While seeing the heading itself you might have noticed the heavy internal memory. Getting a Smartphone with 128GB under 10K is the only reason making Redmi 9 in the top of my list. 4GB RAM and 128GB internal memory gives enough room  for us store and capture whatever we wants.

Other Key features are

  • 5000 mAh battery
  • 6.53 HD display

Note: I have checked our main online ecommerce websites prior to writing this article. There might be small variations in the price when you check the price online. Sellers keep changing in Flipkart and Amazon. I’m sure that these phones can be purchased within 10000RS. If you see the price above 10000RS, please visit the site on a later point so that the seller with less price shows again.
