If LG is shutting down its mobile business, why should you still put your money in an LG smartphone? The LG Wing is a pretty capable smartphone to begin with, being powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G, a 5G-enabled chipset that also powered phones in this segment like the OnePlus Nord and Vivo V20 Pro.

Though the company is shutting down, LG has promised that all its phones will continue getting software updates for three years.
