LG unveils the first foldable smartphone for users across the World
LG Wing, the company’s first smartphone under its Explorer Project, promising innovative designs in the smartphone space, has been launched officially, and it is everything LG promised. However, there are still a few things the company needs to figure out, especially in terms of the potential use cases.
Apart from sporting a unique swivel form factor with two displays, LG Wing comes with wireless charging but ditches the 3.5mm headphone jack and the quad DAC audio hardware. Internally, it is loaded with mid-range specifications. Design and Display
The smartphone comes with a unique take on folding/multi-display smartphones. If you remember, in the early 2000s, smartphones with a swiveling form factor were common, like the old Nokia N92. However, the Korean company has re-imagined the whole concept.
LG Wing sports a curved 6.8-inch P-OLED main display with FHD+ resolution and a 20.5:9 aspect ratio. The secondary screen, on the other hand, is a 3.9-inch G-OLED with FHD+ resolution and a 1.15:1 aspect ratio.
Due to the unique display arrangement, the smartphone does not come with waterproofing. However, LG claims that the displays come with a water-repellant coating. It also comes with a special material to the back of the main screen to protect the second screen from being scratched and to enable smoother pop-outs.
