    Reading Time: 3 minutes read

    Last year Samsung and Huawei redefines the folded smartphone with Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X. Today LG has officially redefine the flip smartphone. After weeks of rumours and leaks, finally LG has officially unveils the LG Wing at its headquarters in Seoul, Korea today.

    With the LG Wing smartphone users can easily switch between Basic Mode and Swivel Mode. First of all, users can easily flip the LG Wing smartphone sideways like how you can flip the fidget spinner. When you using the phone in Basic Mode, you can use it as a normal smartphone. But, the moment when you flip the screen sideways, things changes. The phone rotates clockwise 90 degrees and then you can view the additional screen underneath.

    Similar to the Galaxy Z Fold 2, using the LG Wing you can interact with the second screen without having any interruption. For example, if you are watching YouTube videos, the videos can be played on the main screen and you can continue browsing for videos on the second screen. The best part is the video will be continuously playing in landscape mode. Other use case is to have the map navigation in the main screen and attend to calls in the second screen. Now, let’s see what makes this smartphone great.

    LG Wing Technical Specs

    First of all, the LG Wing features a 6.8-inch P-OLED FullVision display. Whereas, the second screen it has a smaller display which is a 3.9-inch of G-OLED display. If you notice in the front display, there isn’t a punch-hole to house the front selfie camera.

    So instead of putting the camera in the display, LG puts the front camera as the motorized pop-up selfie camera. The front camera has a 32MP sensor which allows you to take great selfies. Over at the rear side, there is a triple camera setup. The design of it looks similar to the latest Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2. LG includes a 64MP main camera, a 13MP ultra-wide camera and a 12MP ultra-wide big pixel camera.

    World’s first gimbal motion camera in a smartphone

    There is another feature in the camera which we need to talk about. LG Wing is the world’s first smartphone to equip a complete gimbal feature. Well, the Vivo X50 Pro comes with the world’s first gimbal camera, but it doesn’t have the gimbal controller feature in it. But in the LG Wing, it has the complete gimbal controller feature. You can easily hold the second screen as the gimbal grip for stable video recordings. At the same time, LG Wing also offers functions typically found only on a real gimbal, just as a joystick for controlling the camera angle, a lock to reduce shakes and blurring, a follow mode for smoother videos when moving, pan follow for horizontal movement with minimal up and down shake, and first-person view mode for capturing rhythmic and dynamic movements.

    Under the hood, the LG Wing runs on the Snapdragon 765G processor which comes with 5G modem. For the storage wise, the LG Wings either comes in 128GB or 256GB of RAM. Both of these models are mated with an 8GB of RAM. You can add additional storage too up to 2TB using the expandable microSD storage. Keeping the lights on is the 4,000mAh battery which comes with 25W fast charging brick which charges via USB-C.

    Overall, we can say that LG has redefined the flip screen smartphone with the LG Wing. But the question is, is this smartphone worth just for the design? Share us your thoughts in the comment section below.
