Leaked video shows LG phone with twisting second screen

Melba Vasquez | 28 August, 2020, 04:10

The company is expected to release the LG Wing around October after launching affordable premium phone Velvet and mid- to low-priced smartphone Q92 this month.

Android Authority posted an exclusive video of the phone, demonstrating the dual-screen that forms a T-shape.

According to rumored specifications, the LG Wing would have a 6.8-inch main screen and a 4-inch second screen powered by Snapdragon 765 or 765G. Sure, it looks nice in the video to be able to see your navigation and have a separate screen for media controls, but apps such as Google Maps and Waze already make controlling media possible without switching to your music player, so we'd have to see more compelling use cases to be convinced.

Android Authority claims that the video shows a "near-final" version of the phone, meaning the device could be announced soon - possibly as soon as IFA Berlin, which kicks off on September 3. The leaked footage does not show how the phone opens and closes, but it appears that the second screen twists out from behind the main display in a format similar to how the cover was flipped off on pre-smartphone clamshell devices like the Samsung S4300 and Motorola AURA. Its launch date isn't confirmed yet, but considering that this design is reportedly "near-final", the announcement shouldn't be that far out. LG does not confirm rumors or details of handsets before official announcements.

Given that it's now been seen in a real-world setting, the anticipated arrival of the LG Wing inside 2020 seems entirely plausible.

LG has been experimenting with dual-screen phones for a while, without succumbing to the foldable phone trend.
