According to LG, this allows a single app to be expanded onto both screens or for two apps to be displayed simultaneously on each screen.
Apps such as YouTube, Tubi, Rave, and Ficto can be displayed on both screens via the preinstalled Naver Whale browser. For these apps, videos would be played on the main screen and the second screen would show the comments section or search bar.
LG also touted that the phone's swivel mode will make it easier to navigate, explaining that the main screen would show map directions while driving, while the second screen could be used for calls.
The LG Wing's other hardware specs include a Snapdragon 765G 5G, 8GB RAM, 128GB internal storage, and a microSD slot.
Camera-wise, the phone has a 32MP pop-up front-camera along with a 64MP OIS wide-angle, 13MP wide-angle, and a 12MP ultrawide cameras on its back.
The front-camera and one of the three rear cameras will be able to record videos simultaneously in swivel mode, LG said. The second screen can also turn into a gimbal when taking photos while the main screen is rotated, the company added.
The LG Wing will first launch in South Korea in October before coming to North America and Europe.
Microsoft's Android handset elevates the long-tried dual-screen handset to a new height with a slim design, differentiated usage modes, and wide screens. While it offers more work area than mainstream market leaders while costing less than folding flagships, it must confront a future of more affordable folding displays.
