Unfortunately, the company has not yet revealed pricing or availability.

LG on Monday announced its first handset under the "Explorer Project", the LG Wing. It is likely to be a part of the company's Explorer Project that is meant to bring new designs to the smartphone market. LG is keen to use the main display in a standard chocolate-bar "portrait" mode, which is a very clear widescreen format, with the secondary panel acting as a sub-display of the variety when you go to Google Maps or read the latest. That's a little concerning because when we looked at the LG Velvet on AT&T, another 765G-based phone, its performance on AT&T's 5G network was downright bad because of the way AT&T configures its network.

The newly launched LG Wing is a dual-screen smartphone. The swivel mode allows users to open an app on both screens or two separate apps on each screen. There is also a special Multi App feature, which lets users create shortcuts for pairs of apps that are often used together. The Main Screen of LG WING is a flawless 6.8-inch P-OLED FullVision display with 20.5:9 aspect ratio to deliver an exceptional viewing and gaming experience.

The whole point of this program is to innovate, release new devices with new form factors, and so on. It has a triple rear camera setup at the back which consists of a 64-megapixel primary camera, a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle sensor, and a 12-megapixel ultra-wide big pixel sensor. These cameras feature superb hardware and innovative software, giving users a great combination of mobile photo and video solutions in their pocket. Using slim but tough composite materials and a special perforation technique, LG WING weighs in at just 260 grams. It shows what looks to be a smartphone/tablet hybrid that either uses an extendable display or a rollable display. Another example of quality engineering is the hinge module with Hydraulic Damper, which reduces stress on mechanism when the Main Screen is rotated. Still, according to LG's official site, these tests were conducted when the Wing was in "swivel down mode". This processor offers 5G support with the integrated X52 modem. About 30 percent of V60 buyers chose to buy it because of the dual-screen case, LG tells us.

As LG's Andrew Coughlin explained the Explorer Project is about taking risks and pursuing new opportunities in smartphone design and functionality with practical innovations for consumers.
