[Update 3: Leaked Render] LG may show off its dual screen “Wing” smartphone on September 14th
In a blogpost today, LG has revealed details about kicking off its new Explorer Project along with a video teaser of what’s believed to be its crazy LG Wing smartphone. LG describes the new Explorer Project as “both an initiative and a category and will include devices that deliver distinctive and yet unexplored usability experiences.” The announcement will take place on September 14 at 10:00 (EDT) and will be streamed on LG Mobile’s YouTube channel and Facebook page.
LG says the new Explorer Project will solely focus on discovering new usabilities and bringing innovative smartphone designs. In contrast, its “Universal Line” will focus on delivering competitive devices such as the LG Velvet.
Although LG hasn’t yet officially revealed much info about the LG Wing, we already know quite a few bits about this upcoming smartphone, including its design, form factor as well as a possible price. A report from ETNews back in May gave us our first glimpse at this crazy dual-screen smartphone. As per the report, the LG Wing will feature a radical dual-screen design in which the secondary screen swivels horizontally behind the main display. This was followed by a release of two leaked video clips, which demonstrated how LG plans to utilize the dual-screen setup for different use cases.
As for availability, LG Wing is expected to be first launched in its home country South Korea. However, the company also plans to bring it to the US market subsequently. As per our source, the LG Wing will hit the US shores this fall and will be priced around $1000.
Information regarding the exact specifications of the Wing remains unknown. However, if the ETNews report is to be believed, the LG Wing will have a 6.8-inch primary display, a 4-inch secondary display, a triple camera setup featuring a 64MP primary sensor, and a Snapdragon 700-series processor with 5G support (likely the Snapdragon 765 or Snapdragon 768G).
