LG Wing lands in India with the LG Velvet 4G in tow

After officially unveiling the LG Wing last month, LG has now launched the quirky smartphone in the Indian market. Powered by Qualcomm’s mid-range Snapdragon 765G chip, the LG Wing features an innovative design with a swiveling main display and a small secondary display hidden underneath. Along with the LG Wing, the South Korean OEM has also launched a 4G variant of the LG Velvet in the country featuring Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 chip. Here’s a quick look at the two new devices from LG:

The LG Wing is one of the most interesting new smartphones to hit the shelves in 2020 thanks to its unique design. And even though LG hasn’t had a great run in the Indian market over the last few years, the LG Wing does have the potential to turn things around for the company.

Aside from the sheer wow factor of its swivel mechanism, the LG Wing is a decidedly mid-range smartphone with decent specifications. It features a 6.8-inch FHD+ P-OLED main display and a 3.9-inch G-OLED secondary display. As mentioned earlier, it’s powered by the 5G-capable Snapdragon 765G chip, and it features 8GB of RAM and 256GB of onboard storage.

On the camera front, the device features a triple camera setup on the back with a 64MP f/1.8 primary camera, a 13MP f/1.9 wide-angle camera, and a 12MP f/2.2 wide-angle gimbal motion camera. For selfies, it has a pop-up 32MP f/1.9 camera. Rounding off the specifications is a respectable 4,000mAh battery with QC 4.0+ fast charging and wireless charging support. In terms of software, the LG Wing runs LG UX based on Android 10 with some unique features to make the most of the dual-screen functionality.

The LG Velvet 4G is a slightly modified version of the mid-range LG Velvet that was launched internationally earlier this year. Instead of the newer Snapdragon 765G chip, the LG Velvet 4G features Qualcomm’s two-year-old flagship Snapdragon 845 chip. But the rest of its hardware remains the same as the international 5G variant.

Much like the LG Wing, the LG Velvet comes with a 6.8-inch P-OLED display and LG makes up for the lack of a second screen on the device with a nifty dual-screen attachment. The smartphone features 6GB of RAM and 128GB of onboard storage, a triple camera setup on the back with a 48MP f/1.8 primary sensor, and a 16MP selfie shooter that’s housed within the teardrop-style notch over at the front.

The LG Velvet packs in a larger 4,300mAh battery with support for QC 3.0 fast charging. The device also features IP68 dust and water resistance, and MIL-STD0810G certification. The optional Dual Screen attachment brings an additional 6.8-inches of screen real estate, with a resolution of 2460 x 1080 pixels. Much like the LG Wing, the LG Velvet 4G also runs LG UX based on Android 10.
