LG Tease Dual-Screen ‘Wing’ Phone Launch
LG is not giving up on its embattled mobile communications business, with the company teasing an innovative dual-screen ‘Wing’ smartphone ahead of its September 14 event.
The rumoured ‘Wing’ handset has seemingly been confirmed via a marketing video, highlighting its swivelling dual-screen functionality.
Disclosed in a separate press release, LG claims the handset is part of its ‘Explorer Project’, which seeks to deliver “much-needed curiosity and excitement to the mobile sector.”
The company’s recently released LG Velvet handset falls under its ‘Universal line.’
The second screen is deemed to be used for multitasking – in a different form-factor from its former G8X – such as watching a video, and then replying to a text message synonymously.
The forthcoming Wing device is also rumoured to support 5G, and harness a triple-rear camera array.
The smartphone is expected to release internationally later this year, with its design reflecting LG’s differentiation strategy in the current smartphone market.
