Earlier this month, LG announced that the company will be shutting down its mobile business to focus on its other businesses like EV components, connected devices, smart homes, robotics, AI, and B2B solutions. However, the company said it would sell off its existing inventory before exiting the market completely.
Now, it looks like LG is doing just that in India. Earlier today, Flipkart updated the LG Wing listing to include a whopping ~$536 discount. The Korean giant launched LG Wing in India last year and it was priced at Rs. 69,990 (~$935). With the new discount, customers can get a LG Wing from Flipkart at Rs. 29,999 (~$399), netting them a 58% discount.
Apart from that, customers can also get up to Rs. 16,500 (~$220) discount by exchanging their current device for the LG Wing. You can get a further 5% discount if you use Flipkart Axis Bank Credit Card to pay for the device. Lastly, Flipkart will also let customers purchase a Google Nest Hub and Nest Mini at Rs. 5,999 (~$80) and Rs. 1,999 (~$26) respectively.
In case you don't remember, LG launched the Wing with an innovative dual-screen design where the top screen could rotate 90-degrees to reveal a second screen. The smartphone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC which is paired with 8GB of RAM and up to 256GB of storage. The LG Wing also features a triple-camera setup with 64MP primary camera with OIS, 13MP ultra-wide camera, and a 12MP ultra-wide big pixel camera, which is meant to be used in swivel mode. On the front, there is a 32MP pop-up selfie camera. To power the hardware, LG has added a 4,000mAh battery which can be charged at 25W with QuickCharge 4+. The smartphone comes with Android 10 with Q OS out-of-the-box.
There is no word on if the discount is going to stay as LG has not officially announced the price reductions. So, if you are interested in picking up LG Wing for yourself then you can head to Flipkart and order one. The device is currently listed as coming soon but we are expecting it to go on sale in a couple of days as a part of Flipkart's Flagship Fest Sale.
