LG Wing Design Details

The LG Wing is a dual-screen smartphone that features a 6.8-inch pOLED main display with FHD+ resolution and another 3.9-inch G-OLED secondary screen. The unique smartphone packs two modes - a Basic Mode and a Swivel Mode. The Basic Mode functions like a regular smartphone.

When switched to the Swivel Mode, the primary screen rotates 90-degrees to present a landscape mode, while the secondary display supports multitasking like keyboard support, gimbal mode, and so on. The unique hinge on the LG Wing can be turned clockwise more than 200,000 times.

One will find a triple-camera setup at the rear featuring a 64MP primary camera, a 13MP ultra-wide-angle lens, and another 12MP ultra-wide Gimbal mode shooter. There is a 32MP selfie camera housed in a pop-up module, which also gives more screen real estate for video playback and gaming.
