We recently saw a dual camera setup on the LG G5 and now LG has launched the X Screen today, which features a dual-display setup. The smartphone basically has two displays, with one bigger main display and a smaller secondary display. The main display is a 4.93-inch IPS panel offering a resolution of 720p. The secondary display on the phone rests above the main display, is just 1.73-inch in size and has a resolution of 80 x 520p. The secondary display of the phone is an always on panel and is quite useful as it is able to showcase notifications, without turning on the main display. Further, the phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC, which is coupled with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage. At the rear, the device features a 13MP rear camera and at the front, the LG X Screen sports an 8MP camera. The device will go on sale from July 20 and will be via Snapdeal.
