LG apparently assumes that one screen is definitely too little, but at the same time it does not want to go in the same direction as even Samsung, so instead of a smartphone with a flexible folding panel, it presents one with a twist, which at first glance looks very classic. In fact, the device has two screens, but to get to the additional one, we have to rotate the second one, resulting in a T-shaped display. All this is to provide, as the manufacturer declares, "a completely new and different form and experience that would be impossible. to be created with conventional smartphones ”.
The main screen is a large 6.8-inch P-OLED with FHD resolution (2460x1080 pixels) that can be used in portrait or landscape mode - the latter reveals the previously mentioned additional screen, 3.9-inch G-OLED with a resolution of 1240x1080 pixels pixels. The screens can display one application or be used for multitasking, giving access to two independent ones - so we can watch a movie on the main one, while checking e-mail or messaging on the additional one. LG has even worked with independent companies, such as the Rave and Ficto streaming platforms, to make the best use of these unique screens.
The rotating screen seems to be perfect also in the photo mode, where we get a kind of gimbal-style grip, improving stabilization - especially since we also get functionalities typical for these devices, such as a joystick to adjust the camera's tilt or the "follow" mode. As for the units themselves, the LF installed a 32 MP retractable front camera for selfies and video calls and a triple rear camera with a 64 MP main unit, a 12 MP ultra wide angle lens and a 13 MP wide angle. Interestingly, the front camera and one of the rear cameras can be used simultaneously, and the effects are saved as one or two separate files.
Despite its unusual screen and rotating mechanism (with a lifetime of at least 200,000 revolutions), the Wing fits the smartphone standard when it comes to dimensions, because it measures 169.5 x 74.5 x 10.9 mm and only its quite high weight of 260 grams shows that it is happening here something more. As expected, however, we are not dealing with a flagship model, because under its hood there is a Snapdragon 765G chip with a 5G module, 8 GB of RAM and 128/256 GB of data memory with the possibility of expanding using microSD cards. For this we have a 4000 mAh battery, 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5 connectivity, Android 10, water and dust resistance certified by IP54 certification and support for wireless charging. Premiere in South Korea next month, followed by the US and Europe - the price remains a mystery.
