The LG Wing is confirmed to launch today, October 28 in India with a new swivel display form factor. The phone was launched globally in September and now LG is bringing the Wing to India which looks like just another near bezel-less smartphone but is a unique take on dual screens in 2020, especially when foldable phones have picked up the pace.
LG has been teasing the Wing across its social media handles from quite a while now and has even created a dedicated section on its website for the launch event. The Wing is the company’s first smartphone under its Explorer project that aims to experiment with different form factors and in developing unique use cases.
LG has scheduled the Wing launch event for October 28 in India. The launch event will start from 11:30 AM and will be live-streamed online. You can also visit the dedicated section on the LG website for the launch event here. Moreover, we have embedded the YouTube live stream link below for your convinience.
The LG Wing has an aluminium build that measures 10.9 millimetres in thickness and weighs 260 grams. It is also IP54 rated, making it resistant to usual splashes of water. The phone features a 6.8-inch Full HD+ (2460 x 1080 pixels) resolution display that uses a plastic OLED panel topped with Gorilla Glass 5 for added protection against daily wear and tear. The smaller display underneath measures 3.9-inches with a Full HD+ (1240 x 1080 pixels) resolution and uses a glass-based OLED panel.
The Wing is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor with an octa-core CPU and Adreno 620 GPU. This is paired with 8GB RAM and upto 256GB storage options to choose from with support for microSD cards. The phone runs on Android 10-based interface with a special Swivel mode UI for the different use cases that make use of both screens.
The LG Wing has a triple camera setup on the back that consists of a primary 64MP camera with an f/1.8 aperture, a 13MP ultra-wide-angle camera with 117-degree field-of-view and another 12MP ultra-wide-angle gimbal camera with 120-degree field-of-view. On the front, there is a 32MP camera house in a pop-up mechanism and the rear cameras can record in 4K UHD at 60FPS with OIS support.
The front screen is also home to an in-screen fingerprint sensor and the LG Wing comes equipped with a 4,000mAh battery with support for fast wired charging courtesy of Quick Charge 4.0+ and wireless charging.
The LG Wing is priced starting at KRW 1,098,900 in South Korea which roughly translates to around Rs 70,000 by direct conversion. However, there are many factors at play that decides the final pricing, and we will only know the LG Wing’s exact India price when it launches later today.
