LG will have a new web browser pre-installed on its upcoming flagship smartphone that is to be unveiled at the IFA tradeshow, the company announced.
The South Korean electronics giant said it has optimised Naver's Chromium-based web browser, called Whale, for use on its dual screen user interface.
LG said the browser would be introduced alongside its new smartphone -- most likely called the V60 ThinQ -- that will be unveiled at Berlin next month.
Whale will support split screens, allowing users to multitask and browse two sites at the same time, LG said. For example, a customer can perform online shopping on one screen while reading individual product descriptions on the other.
LG's second quarter profit has been hit hard by declines in OLED TV sales and rival Samsung's QLED onslaught. It's time for LG to drop its over-confidence and pursue a more aggressive pricing model and better warranties for its OLED TVs.
