LG Wing: Display, Performance, And Other Things to Know

Recently, LG announced its new smartphone named LG Wing, which will be available from the three leading wireless carriers (Verizon, AT&T. and T-Mobile) in the United States. The company is trying to break the ceiling and introduce something beyond imagination. Under their later Explorer Project, they brought the LG Wing smartphone with two swiveling displays. It has multiple incredible features and tools that regular Android smartphones lack. The device uses LG’s UX 9.0 interface and makes an ideal gadget for gamers, videographers, or phone photographers. To know more about this device, check the detailed guide below:

Design

LG Wing’s display is nothing like the regular smartphones you see in the market these days. When you unbox the phone, it might look like a typical smartphone until you pull the mini-display hidden underneath the main screen. As soon as you take the mini-display out, you enter the ‘Swivel Mode.’ Due to this feature, it has a thicker body and is more massive in weight. The main screen has a tall glass panel with curved sides. The back of the phone has a glossy finish, and a massive multi-lens camera bump is mounted.

The swiveling part is very smooth, and every time you open or close the mini-display, you will find it gliding with the chassis while making a pop sound to (un)lock the device in place. The Swivel Mode displays the back of the main screen. Due to this feature, the company had to drop the front-facing camera and introduce a pop-up selfie camera. Every time you open the pop-up camera, you will see an animation for a fraction of a second on your screen. The device has an in-display fingerprint sensor, and the front and the rear screen is protected with Gorilla Glass 5.

 

 

Due to the design, the LG Wing could only get an IP54 rating and remove the 3.5mm port. It has bottom-firing loudspeakers and a USB-C port for charging.

Displays

You might be impressed by the screen size of the device, i.e., 6.8-inch OLED as its main display and a 3.9-inch OLED for the mini or secondary display. In today’s date, when other Android smartphone companies are offering Full HD+ display, LG Wing is stuck at 1080p only. Both the displays also have only 60Hz refresh rates, whereas the rival brands offer refresh rates between 90Hz to 144Hz. The primary screen has 2,460 x 1,080 resolution and 20.5:9 display ratio with 395ppi, and the secondary screen offers 1,240 x 1,080, 419ppi with 1.15:1 display ratio. Its high pixel density shows vibrant colors and deep blacks on the screen.

The device offers multiple display mode choices for customizing the display color temperature, saturation, and more. It also has an in-display sensor for unlocking the device, but unfortunately, the in-display is way too slow than the other smartphones with similar sensors.

Camera

The device is equipped with stunning cameras, which are great for budding or amateur photographers. LG has introduced a gimbal mode for the camera when you use the device in Swivel Mode. The device has a 64MP OIS EIS wide primary camera with 13MP ultra-wide (ƒ/1.9, 1.0μm, 117-degree FoV) and a 12MP ultra-wide (ƒ/2.2, 1.4μm, 120-degree FoV) lenses at the back. It also has a 32MP wide (ƒ/1.9, 0.8μm, 80-degree FoV) camera in the front. The camera also has a Night Mode for capturing impressive shots in dim lighting. The front camera supports Portrait Mode for a focused selfie.

You cannot use the camera with Swivel mode and are restricted from using the video-only app. You can shoot videos in 4K quality at 60fps and 1080p at 60fps. Its stabilization feature lets you shoot stable videos even when you hold the phone with only one hand.

Performance

The LG Wing is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G processor and an Adreno 620 GPU that makes it a little less potent than the smartphones with Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor. But it has both sub-6GHz and mmWave 5G support, which is the latest in the market. The processor it uses is suitable for performing everyday tasks. The dual-display on the device is creating a lot more disruption than expected. Both the displays can run two different apps simultaneously, which will require the device to have more power, which it lacks.

Moreover, many apps are still not functional with dual screens, so they might not be able to run them on this device. This smartphone is offering 8GB of RAM with 128GB of storage space and 256GB of expandable storage.

Battery

This smartphone comes with a 4,000mAh battery that can last up to almost two days. But due to the dual-screen, the device will require more juice, meaning that the battery will drain faster. The battery life of this phone majorly depends on how much you’re using the Swivel Mode. This device supports wireless charging at a peak rate of 12W. It charges at the rate of 25W with the in-box charger and its USB-C-to-USB-C cable.

Conclusion

Overall the LG Wing smartphone stands somewhere in the middle. It is not too impressive, and it’s not boring, like regular Android smartphones either. It uses Android 10 software and offers satisfactory performance and features as well. The original shortcuts are impressive but are not as smooth as they should be. Currently, this device is retailing for $999 at T-Mobile and Verizon, and for $1049 at AT&T.
