|LG Wing Is Official: Everything You Need To Know About The Swiveling Phone by soundlala: 7:04am On Sep 17|
The LG Wing is the first phone in the manufacturer’s Explorer Project, promising innovative designs in the smartphone space. Of course, the dominant design feature here is the second screen that pops out from the back to sit at a perpendicular angle to the main screen. But another noteworthy design decision is a 32MP pop-up selfie camera, hidden at the top of the rear half.
Meanwhile, the LG Wing’s core specs are a Snapdragon 765G chipset with 5G, 8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, and a 4,000mAh battery. The chipset in particular isn’t quite flagship-level, but LG is hoping that the camera experience is.
The Wing packs a rather interesting rear camera setup, featuring a 64MP main camera, 13MP ultra-wide shooter, and a 12MP “Ultra Wide Big Pixel” camera. LG says you also have a “Gimbal Motion Camera” feature which allows you to use the second screen as a grip and delivers a suite of capabilities to the 12MP camera.
Some of the touted photo/video capabilities in this regard include a “joystick” for controlling the camera angle, a lock mode to reduce blur and judder, follow functionality for smoother video when on the go, a pan follow mode for horizontal movement, and a “first person view mode” for “rhythmic and dynamic” movements.
LG Wing: The second screen explained
The phone can be used in a so-called Basic mode or in the Swivel mode, with the former seeing the 3.9-inch second screen hidden away and operating like a normal phone. Pop out the screen for Swivel mode and LG says certain apps can be used across both screens or two apps can be used at once (one on each screen).
One early pre-release clip showed the main screen being used for GPS navigation while the second screen handled a call and music. A second pre-release video showed a racing game being played on the main screen and the game’s track layout on the smaller screen. LG also gave the example of watching a video on the main screen while texting on the second display, or watching a video on the big display and getting media controls on the small screen.
There’s no word on the number of apps that currently support the LG Wing, but we will hopefully see adoption improve over time. For what it’s worth, the LG Second Screen accessory hasn’t seen much adoption from developers.
LG is also offering a Multi App feature that echoes a similar feature seen on the Galaxy Fold and Surface Duo lines. This will allow you to create a shortcut to quickly launch a desired pair of apps. If you want to watch a local video while browsing the web, you could theoretically create a shortcut to open your video player and browser in one go.
LG has focused on durability too, saying that the hinge mechanism should last for 200,000 swivels. This is equivalent to just over 100 motions daily for five years, LG says. It’s also added a special material to the back of the main screen to protect the second screen from being scratched and to enable smoother pop-outs.

Very sad that Nigerians don't understand the meaning of "experimental".
With the comments I'm seeing above, I no longer wonder why there are not tech innovation and companies in Nigeria...
