The long wait is finally over! After months of continual leaks, the LG Wing will finally be unveiled on the 14th of September 2020. While some of its peers are working on foldable phones as their next-gen line of smartphones, LG has opted to release two-screen phones that work by adding a second display using their casing.
The teaser video below shows that the LG Wing will extend its display with the help of a screen that will rotate into view. Previous leaks that were released around May spoke of a T-Shaped device having a horizontal extension at its top, while a recently leaked video displayed how the device works and how it rotates.
LG claims that this is the prototype and first of many in its Explorer Project, which “will include devices that deliver distinctive and yet unexplored usability experiences.” Phones like the LG Velvet, on the other hand, represent mainstream needs in its Universal line.
Although the teaser doesn’t show the Wing device in action, LG announced Rave, Tubi, Ficto, and Naver as partners in the Project. Naver and Tubi are known for the Line messaging app and free ad-supported video streaming respectively.
Work is currently ongoing on the design of a customized dual-screen web browser. All details regarding the Explorer Project and the LG Wing should be available on the 14th of September 2020 at 10 AM ET.
