LG just released a very unique smartphone - WING. The phone features two screens but in an orientation never seen before. They claimed that the phone offers both conventional and unique user experiences.
The multiscreen (Main Screen: 6.8" 20.5:9 POLED, Second Screen: 3.9" 1:1.15 GOLED) LG Wing has two displays for two modes - Basic Mode and Swivel Mode. When in Swivel Mode, the display rotates 90 degrees, switching the main 6.8" POLED display in landscape mode to reveal a 3.9" second display that unlocks new functions.
Now one can watch shows horizontally on the Main Screen while using the Second Screen to send texts or surf the web on another app - without interference on either screen. Users are now able to do more with less time and effort. It breaks away from the conventional form of today’s smartphones to provide an expanded range of options and usability.
The hinge uses a hydraulic damper along with dual spring and dual lock to enable the rotation of the main screen. LG claims that the hinge mechanism has been tested for as much as 200,000 swivels. Also, the company has applied thermoplastic polyoxymethylene at the back of the main screen to prevent scratches on the second screen.
Gimbal Motion Camera
WING has a dedicated 12M Ultra Wide Gimbal Motion Camera keeps everything nice and smooth. It comes with up to four different shooting modes (Lock Mode, Pan Follow Mode, Follow Mode, First Person View Mode) to be utilized with the two screens to provide an array of optimal capture options based on the content type - so that anyone is able to easily create studio-quality content right in the palm of their hands.
With Dual Recording, users can simultaneously capture themselves as well as what's in front using both front and rear cameras. Watch both shots side by side, Picture in Picture, or in split screen as two separate videos. The Pop Up front camera hides away when not in use, and then rises up into action.
LG Wing will initially arrive in South Korea on October, followed by key markets North America and Europe. LG Wing price is yet to be revealed. It will be offered in Aurora Gray and Illusion Sky colour options.
