LG has decided to do something really unheard of since the early 2000s: shake up the shape of the phone.
The LG Wing takes the idea of a dual screen smartphone and literally flips it with one screen that pivots to a horizontal T with another underneath.
This 5G phone is aimed at everyone, but the improved camera and rotating screen clearly scream that content creators should pay attention to this unique phone.
The first big draw is the two screens. The first is a cinematic 21: 9 display, the 6.8-inch POLED FullVision display and the second is a slightly smaller 3.9-inch that doubles as a grip when the main display is in landscape mode.
You can use the phone in either mode, although the clear rotary dial is designed for watching movies and playing games, while simultaneously allowing you to multitask on the second screen.
To make this even easier, LG has built in a smart Multi App feature that allows you to create shortcuts for apps that go well together. This means you can create a quick shortcut that opens YouTube and Google at the same time, so you can quickly look up your favorite lyrics or facts while watching a video.
The phone comes with three rear cameras: a 64MP Ultra High Resolution OIS Wide captures vivid details, a 12MP Ultra Wide Gimbal Motion Camera keeps everything nice and smooth, and a 13MP Ultra Wide fits the whole scene in one recording. There is also a 32MP pop-up camera that springs into action when you hit selfie mode.
The cameras are also supported by nice upgrade elements such as the Gimbal Motion Camera and Dual Recording, which allow you to simultaneously record footage on the front and rear cameras.
With all these great features and the dual display, it is not surprising that there is considerable processing power behind this phone. It runs on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G 5G Mobile Platform and is the first to integrate an application processor and a 5G Modem-RF system.The chipset offers the very best AI performance, lightning-fast 5G connectivity and intelligent multi-camera capabilities, which also the battery life is preserved.
Price and availability
The LG Wing will be available in South Africa from November.
It has a suggested retail price of R19,999, making it a more expensive product, but understandable for its design and power.
