After confirming the name of the first smartphone under the Explorer Project, Seoul based manufacturer formally unveiled LG Wing earlier this month. The device features a unique combination of two screens which rotate to form a T-shape. The LG Wing is launching next month in South Korea, with North American and European markets following sometimes afterward. Today, the brand has announced the pricing of the device for the South Korean market.
The device is priced at KRW1,098,900 ($942, approximately), which is in line with what was reported before the phone was announced. This is a relatively low price for a dual-screen device when compared to the competition. The Microsoft Surface Duo which has two individual displays bisected by a 360-degree hinge starts at $1,399, while the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 which features a foldable screen costs $1,999.
In the Basic Mode, the handset has a 6.8-inch P-OLED screen in the 20.5:9 aspect ratio. When the primary display is rotated around by 90 degrees, a smaller 3.9-inch G-OLED screen with a 1.15:1 aspect ratio is revealed underneath. The two displays can be used together for the same app, or for multitasking with different apps per screen. In swivel mode, the horizontal display has a new home screen with a carousel for installed apps.
The device is powered by Snapdragon 765G 5G chipset. It has 8GB RAM and up to 256GB internal storage. The battery capacity is 4,000mAh.
The smartphone comes with a triple-camera setup which includes a 64MP primary camera with OIS, a 13MP ultra-wide camera for use in the Basic Mode, and a 12MP ultra-wide lens for use in the Swivel Mode. It also uses a gimbal camera system that allows the user to aim the setup and different areas of the frame, and also reduce camera shake. The selfie camera is a motorized pop-up 32MP lens.
