lg confirms first explorer project wing

After a lot of speculations, finally, LG has confirmed that the phone showing up with a flipped screen is actually its latest innovation called “Wing”. Earlier, LG posted a video on its official YouTube channel announcing the launch date of the device. In the 23 seconds invitation video, LG has officially revealed the new upcoming form-factor at the 14-second mark. Apart from this video, earlier a user had posted a demo video of the phone attached to the dashboard of his car giving a real-world experience of the device already. The video showed the phone using the map for navigation while using the secondary screen to make calls without the need to minimize the map. This form factor can be super-beneficial for other apps as well.

The South Korean giant has confirmed the Wing branding for the device. This new category is "aimed at discovering new ways to interact with mobile devices, focusing on the evolving and ever-changing needs of today’s consumers and challenging established user norms". While Samsung, Huawei, and other companies are going up with foldable phones, LG instead is taking another interesting route.

The secondary screen of the upcoming Wing swivels horizontally as spotted in the viral video. The phone is expected to be powered by a 7-series Snapdragon processor. No other specifications are known yet. It is expected to have 5G capability with the Snapdragon 765G and may cost more than $1000. The upcoming smartphone will see its official unveiling on September 14 at 11 PM KST time (2 PM UTC).
