LG Wing 5G is a dual-screen phone with a unique design, mid-range specs

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.

"In swivel mode, certain apps can be expanded to both screens or two apps can be displayed simultaneously, one on each display", LG notes.

The second display also adds to the thickness and bulk of the phone, although not as much as, say, the self-contained full-size screen cases that LG's used in the past.

"The Gimbal Motion Camera, the world's first in a smartphone, turns the LG WING's Second Screen into a convenient grip, providing the stability needed to capture clearer shots and smooth video footage in horizontal mode with one hand, normally hard to accomplish with conventional bar-type smartphones", LG said.

LG has undertaken some collaborations to improve the user experience, with examples including partnerships with the Rave and Ficto streaming platforms so that users can watch content on the main screen while chatting to other viewers using the second display. LG has given the phone a water-resistant coating that should keep it's internal components save if you get caught in the rain, but be sure to keep the device sealed up in a plastic bag if you're headed to the beach.

Kelly Clarkson admits she didn't want to host a talk show
Here's hoping she has a loving support system of friends and family around her during these tough times , too. Kelly Clarkson filed for divorce from husband Brandon Blackstock (pictured with her in April 2019) in June.

"LG Wing offers functions typically found only on a real gimbal, just as a joystick for controlling the camera angle, a lock to reduce shakes and blurring, a follow mode for smoother videos when moving, pan follow for horizontal movement with minimal up and down shake, and first-person view mode for capturing rhythmic and dynamic movements". 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.

Inside that body is a Snapdragon 765G processor with 5G support. The swiveling mechanism on the Wing has been tested to last for more than 200,000 swivels. LG has included 8GB of RAM and 128GB or 256GB storage options, plus a microSD slot with support for cards up to 2TB. LG Wings's software will be its saving grace since Android isn't designed for phones with two screens, which means manufacturers like LG and now Microsoft have to build their devices' multiscreen functionality themselves, often with mixed results.

LG will release the phone in South Korea from next month, followed by the USA and Europe. The phone will be making its way to Verizon first, but AT&T and T-Mobile plan to sell the phone as well later this year. No pricing information has been announced yet.

The rest of the hardware for the LG Wing is fairly ordinary.
