LG has released standard flagship smartphones like LG Velvet and wrestled with the idea of manufacturing the folding smartphones in its way. LG Wing was announced by the brand on 14th September this year, featuring a case comprising a secondary screen for enabling the users with additional magnanimous experience. The latest flagship smartphone from the brand is the first release and belongs to the company’s Explorer project. The is no folding panel in the LG Wing and the smartphone if featuring a rotating screen for revealing the smaller and squarer screen beneath it. Here is everything that you must know before going for this smartphone.
LG Wing Price in India
LG Wing is yet to launch in the India smartphone market. The expected price of LG Wing in India is around Rs. 1,99,900 which takes it to another level of a flagship.
LG Wing looks like any other smartphone when viewed the first time. There is an edge to edge display and the design is rectangular with side buttons, in-display fingerprint sensor and a Type-C port on the bottom side. The smartphone is dense and thicker than the LG Velvet.
What makes this smartphone unique is the swivel mode. Switching to it will swivel out the main 6.8-inch screen sideways, exposing the secondary 3.9-inch mini display under it. The smaller display will work just like the bigger one and it allows you to use the applications on it and provides a dedicated space for a keyboard.
The volume buttons are placed on the right side with a lock button below it. When the phone is closed, it gets hard to differentiate them and when the displays are Swivelled open, you will find all the three buttons behind the display and it may seem awkward to press them. Also, the smartphone with two displays is heavy to handle with 260-gram weight.
Taking the LG Velvet, a footprint for display size, the LG Wing comes with a 6.8-inch FHD+ POLED display, featuring the LG’s current flagship size with a resolution of 10802460. Under this display, there lies a 3.9-inch GOLED secondary display, which makes this smartphone a unique one. Also, the selling point of this smartphone is its dual-display.
The main display of the LG Wing will twist around for revealing the second screen and looks like a T-block, instead of folding out side by side. For ensuring a smooth rotation, LG Wing comes with a dual lock system, tested 200000 times for ensuring longevity. There is a hydraulic damper with a dual spring system for the distribution of weight equally, ensuring the screen doesn’t move on its own accord.
LG Wing is offering Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 chipset for running the device smoothly and enabling 5G connectivity. The chipset is clubbed with a respectable 8GB RAM which is not a top-tier feature and comprises an onboard internal storage of 256GB, which can be expanded up to 2TB via a dedicated microSD slot. The processor is the same that you can see in low-cost 5G smartphones like OnePlus Nord and Google Pixel 4a G5 and the overall performance provided by the LG Wing will be decent.
LG Wing runs on the Android 10, much like Velvet and LG V60 and featuring on the top, the custom LG UX skin. The smartphone is quite clean and features a certain polish level that you would expect from a flagship-level smartphone.
The camera department is another exhibition area of the LG Wing. Although the triple-lens camera setup is hardly matching the modern standards, the smartphone has differentiated itself from the high-end devices by featuring a Gimbal-equipped Ultra-wide lens, panning automatically or with the help of an on-screen joystick for ensuring the smooth motion.
No doubt, there is a 64MP main camera along with 13MP Ultra-wide camera on the rear side of the LG Wing. It’s the middle 12MP lens, which is specially designed for videos, benefiting from the Hexa motion sensor technology.
LG Wing comes with a 32MP Pop Up selfie camera with an aperture of f/1.9. The Pop-Up camera will hide away when there won’t be any use of it and will rise for capturing selfies when you will hit the selfie mode. This feature allows the users to utilize the smartphone in the most optimal ways, based on the requirement.
There is a 4000 mAh battery under the hood, which is almost normal for flagship smartphones. LG Wing supports+ Quick Charge along with 25W fast charging and 10W wireless charging. Although the smartphone brand is claiming that the general efficiency and the heavily optimised power draw of LG Wing are there to maximize the battery backup, the smartphone might consume more battery with the mini screen active and the main screen swivelled open.
The LG Wing is an incredibly fun and exceptionally cool smartphone. It’s a conversation-starter, with unique display and stunning camera feature. The eccentricity of this smartphone is an acquired flavour and the curious ones or the tech enthusiasts should buy this.
