A strange LG Wing smartphone will hit the market this year. It promises a special user experience thanks to the swivel display that hides behind the main screen. This is not to say that the device looks ugly in this design, but it is debatable and there is still no understanding of what benefits the user will receive from it. LG’s marketers will have to work hard to figure out how to convince users of the advisability of buying an outlandish smartphone for $ 1000.
As it turned out, the series of unusual devices released by the company will not end with the release of LG Wing. It is stated that the new product will be part of a new line of LG gadgets called Explorer Project. The goal of such outlandish devices is “to find new ways to interact with mobile devices, focusing on the ever-changing needs of today’s consumers and challenging established norms.” The company itself believes that the Wing will become “the most daring newest smartphone with a new form factor and new capabilities that cannot be obtained from conventional smartphones.”
It is known about LG Wing that it was awarded a main display with a diagonal of 6.8 inches and an additional rotary 4-inch matrix. It should be based on Snapdragon 765G, offer 8GB of RAM and Android 10 operating system.
