New LG "Wing" rumored to have a rotating dual-screen form factor

A new report claims a smartphone by LG Electronics with the code name "Wing" is in development with a dual-screen design in a T-shape.

Even so, the LG Wing (its codename for now) offers a unusual new alternative to the push for more screen real estate. One example offered by the report was being able to edit a photo or video thats previewed on the main screen while all controls and commands are reserved to the secondary screen.

Although the renderings do not provide much detail of each screen's functionality, they do suggest the second display works as the keyboard. This can be used for all manner of applications, including a keyboard. But I'm not convinced LG has enough cachet to convince developers to create apps designed specifically for this unusual form factor.

How major US stock indexes fared Monday
Shares fell Tuesday in Asia as worries over fresh outbreaks of coronavirus cases overshadowed hopes over reopening economies. Meanwhile, the Federal Reserve said a facility created to purchase eligible corporate debt from investors will launch today.

The Verge says that beyond its swiveling screen, LG's upcoming device is said to support 5G, will run on a Snapdragon 7-series processor, and will feature a triple-rear camera array with a 64-megapixel main sensor. That's more or less the same specification set up as the soon-to-launch LG Velvet flagship. Flipping the screen out turns the main display to a horizontal orientation while revealing a new square display.

Although this is radically different from what we've seen in recent years, this isn't the first time LG is launching a phone like this. Microsoft has yet to announced a price for its book-shaped dual-screen Android smartphone, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's also a heck of a lot cheaper than current-gen foldables. And it has a design that looks a little less out-there than the LG Wing.
