It is an initiative by the company for providing a new experience to users with its design. LG Wing comes with a unique and amazing design. It is a dual-screen smartphone, 6.8 inches display can swivel horizontally up to reveal a 3.9 inches second display. 

LG Wing 5G gives you a dual-screen experience without feeling too chunky, wide, and weird in the hands. You can easily hold and carry. 

With the Help of Swivel mode, you can extend your app experience. And no more switching between apps. You can do two things at the same time and be a perfect multitasker. 

One of the most unique features of LG Wing is the Gimbal mode. The gimbal mode is more than a video stabilizer. LG Wing 5G comes with a triple camera setup, with a Pop-Up treat. 

It’s not only this LG also featured with all the tools for content creators – “LG Creator’s Kit”. 

This smartphone also packs with Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G 5G mobile platform with power for hours of multitasking with a good battery life. And also Wing has passed the Mil-STD-810G Test so that your phone can handle Sudden drops, extreme temperature changes, and your most clumsy moments. 

Design & Display

When you open the box, the LG Wing 5G looks the same as other smartphones at first glance: rectangular design, side buttons, in-display fingerprint scanner, USB-C port at the bottom. But, when you pull the smartphone out then the phone goes to the next level.

Here’s The Magic! Push the screen to the left and BOOM! Now your smartphone turns into a T-shape futuristic device. And the important thing is it is nicely balanced. 

This is the “Swivel Mode”, the main screen is 6.8 inches Flawless FHD + P-OLED (i.e Plastic OLED Display) FullVision display (it means no notch, no front camera, just screen). Swivel up the main screen to reveal the 3.9 inches G-OLED (i.e. Glass OLED Display) second screen.

The main screen has a 20.5:9 aspect ratio and 395ppi of pixel density, and the second screen a 1.15:1 aspect ratio and a pixel density of 419ppi.

The second screen works just like a full-size display that means you can use apps, and other apps. But you can use it for secondary controls as in the camera app & you can use it as a whole space to a keyboard.

Camera

LG Wing’s camera also has very interesting features. Well, this smartphone has an innovative triple camera setup – 64 MP main camera captures all details, 13 MP ULtra-Wide camera, and the 12 MP Ultra-Wide Gimbal Motion camera that captures everything nice and smooth. 

In the Front side of LG Wing 5G, there is a 32 MP Pop-Up camera that hides away when not in use, and then rises into action when you fit selfie mode.

But, the interesting part is, if you drop your phone by accident, the pop-up camera automatically goes inside the smartphone. All thanks to the “Fall Detection” feature. 

For your video files, the LG Wing comes with a “Gimbal Mode” with 6 motion sensors. So you can make more stabilized videos, in this Gimbal mode, you’re in complete control of pan, tilt, roll, and lock with a handy joystick and lock trigger. 

 It is also featured with Dual Recording i.e. you can shoot from the front and rear camera at the same time. 

Watch both shots side by side, picture in picture, or split-screen as two separate videos.

Whatever you’re shooting – city scenes, vlogs, the Timelapse Control speeds it up at the ideal rate. It’s not only this! You can shoot dramatic stretches-out of exciting moments. Gimbal Slow Motion obliterates every shake, even when the action is ultra-extreme.
