Specifications and images of the new LG Wing smartphone are shown below. The LG Wing, with its flip-around display and second screen, is the first in a series of Explorer Project handsets that try something different.
In Swivel Mode, however, the entire front display can be turned 90 degrees, exposing a second 3.9-inch below it.

LG is not a stranger to dual screen phones. Users can watch their favorite movies in all their widescreen glory while searching for information about their favorite actors or discussing the movie via chat with friends. Thermoplastic polyoxymethylene is applied to the back of the Main Screen to facilitate smoother swiveling and to prevent scratches on the Second Screen. This is an approach LG could also adopt for this potential new entrant.
"LG has always been a pioneer in pushing the envelope of smartphone form factors, the only way to bring about much-needed innovation in the mobile market".
The LG Wing features two display, including a 6.8-inch 2460×1080 P-OLED main display and a secondary 3.9-inch 1240×1080 G-OLED screen.
The second screen can also act as a grip, with the Grip Lock feature allowing it to ignore accidental touches. Video applications can use the second display for media and volume controls. There's also a 32MP selfie camera that pops out from the body of the LG Wing, and you can choose to record video with both the front cam and a rear camera simultaneously. And it has three rear cameras: A 64 MP main lens, a 12 MP ultra-wide lenses with big pixels, and a 13 MP ultra-wide lens.
The camera specs might not be that interesting, but there is something called the "Gimbal Mode".
The Wing starts out as a 6.67 x 2.93 x 0.43-inch standard slab-style phone with a 20.5:9, 6.8-inch OLED screen. Turn it around, you can use the main display as a large, widescreen keyboard when you respond to a message displayed in a small, vertical display.
The LG Wing certainly is one such phone, which comes with two displays, and the first one swivels.
The entire premise of the Wing lies in the screen. Does its swiveling mechanism and dual display design have you interested? It says its engineers took a lot of possibilities into consideration. Another example of quality engineering is the hinge module with Hydraulic Damper, which reduces stress on mechanism when the Main Screen is rotated. Pricing also remains a mystery for now, although rumours have suggested that the swivelling phone will cost at least United States dollars 1,000 (~RM4,130).
