LG is a company that likes to plot its own course when it comes to smartphone design, and while everyone else is ziggingwith folding or dual displays, LG is zagging with its rotating dual-screen Wing smartphone. But that’s not all that LG is working on as part of its Explorer Project initiative. At its event announcing the Wing yesterday, those that stuck around until the tail end of the presentation were greeted what looks to be the next entry into the Explorer Project family. It’s just a brief clip, but it shows a smartphone laying on its back from the side, and you can see the lower portion of the display extending out, give your more real estate to work with....

After plenty of “leaks” over the past few weeks, the LG Wing is now official. The Wing is the first product to come from LG’s Explorer Project, which aims to “discover yet unexplored concepts” to help advance the smartphone industry. In the case of the Wing, we’re looking at dual screens. There’s a top screen that swivels revealing a smaller display underneath. This is a drastic departure from the flexible folding displays that we’ve seen on devices like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 or the dual folding displays we’ve seen with the Microsoft Surface Duo. The primary display that you will be interacting with the most measures 6.8-inches across... Read more...
We first heard about LG’s upcoming Wing smartphone earlier this year, and within the past few weeks, there have been some “carefully” leaked videos that have shown the device in the real world. Today, LG is officially teasing the Wing in a short video clip that gives us a visual representation of how the smartphone’s dual screens will operate. The video below, which shows a person surfing as the displays swivel, looks like a fancy tech demo, but how consumers will warm up to this new display concept in the real world remains to be seen.  The previous real-world videos of the Wing showed the smartphone displaying a navigational map on its primary...

Earlier this year, we began hearing rumblings of a new smartphone, codenamed Wing, from LG with a rotating display. At the time, we were presented with a concept render of the device (seen above), which showed a swiveling 5.8-inch primary display that was joined by a secondary 4-inch display.  Today, however, we’re getting an even better look at the LG Wing. A new video has surfaced which shows the LG Wing in action. The clip is just over 10 seconds in length, and shows the smartphone in its extended position, revealing both its 5.8-inch and 4-inch displays.  We see the smartphone on a windshield mount with the primary display in a vertical orientation showing navigational...

If smartphones with folding displays just aren't your cup of tea, then perhaps a forthcoming phone from LG with a rollable display will be more to your liking. A new report out of South Korea alleges that LG is set to launch an advanced smartphone with a rollable display in early 2021. Although LG announced the first commercial flexible 6-inch OLED panel seven years ago, only Samsung has shipped folding smartphones in significant numbers thus far. In addition, LG's mobile phone unit has experienced losses for 20 consecutive quarters, so the company is hoping for a breakout hit to help improve its bottom line with handsets. The device is reportedly being developed under the codename "B Project,"... Read more...
