LG today sent invites for an October 28 press event in India, which is expected to include the launch of the Wing smartphone. The South Korean major is holding a virtual event, and things kick off at 11:30 am.

The Wing, LG’s flagship smartphone for this year, is a unique device with a dual-screen with a primary touchscreen that swivels sideways to reveal a secondary, smaller screen underneath. Remember swivel phones from the early 2000s? The LG Wing functions similarly to those phones.


The basic idea behind the LG Wing is similar to dual-screen smartphones. It has a 6.8-inch OLED main screen, similar to many phones. But things get interesting when the entire front screen rotates clockwise 90-degrees, unleashing a 3.9-inch square-shaped secondary screen.

Some apps take advantage of dual-screens. For instance, you can watch a YouTube video on the bottom, and use the bottom screen to comment. Or imagine using the LG Wing as a gimbal motion camera. LG claims the unique hinge mechanism has been tested and “proven to be reliable after 200,000 swivels.”

The LG Wing is powered by a Snapdragon 765G processor and is 5G-enabled. It has three cameras on the back: a 64MP main shooter, a 13MP ultra-wide, and another 12MP ultra-wide angle lens just for video. On the front, there’s a 32MP pop-up selfie camera.

LG’s ambitious Wing smartphone is an intriguing device and there’s nothing like this in the market. If the dual-screen Wing succeeds, it would be a big comeback for LG in the flagship smartphone. The Wing is priced at $1000 in the US, which is $1000 cheaper than Samsung’s foldable Galaxy Z Fold 2.
