LG has finally confirmed that its upcoming dual-screen device will be called the LG Wing. The new smartphone will launch on September 14 under the “Explorer Project.”
The LG Wing is catching the attention of tech enthusiasts due to its unique feature. Folding smartphones are getting more common. But LG decided to go for a swivel mechanism instead.
LG iterates that the reason for going that route is to “discover new ways to interact with a mobile device.”
The LG Wing unveiling event will be streamed online through LG Mobile’s official YouTube channel. A Facebook Live event will also be shown on its official Facebook page.
Unofficial 3D renders of the new device also surfaced on Twitter as the launch date gets nearer.

New ways to use a smartphone
LG is always at the forefront of innovation when it comes to smartphones. It has failed on some like the LG G5 modular device. However, there are LG devices that changed the game such as the LG V-series with its quad-DAC.
This time, LG continues to innovate smartphones through its Explorer Project. The company aims to produce devices that change the way how people use smartphones.
According to Morris Lee, LG Mobile Communications Company president, “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 would be first on the line with its swivel display.
“Explorer Project is both an initiative and a category and will include devices that deliver distinctive and yet unexplored usability experiences,” LG stated.
As such, the upcoming device houses the same specs as the LG Velvet, but with an extra display. It swings to provide extra screen real-estate for multitasking.
Android Authority posted an exclusive look on the device and it seems like a promising smartphone. Hopefully, this smartphone has a competitive price to attract its target market.
The LG Wing might have a unique look to it. But it gives hope that smartphone innovation is still a thing.
