There is only one contender for 2020’s weirdest handset and the LG Wing simply walked away with the crown.
Today Evan Blass aka evLeaks posted a marketing render for the handset, which can be seen below:
It shows the device in both the folded and unfolded state, and the device appears surprisingly thin in both configurations.
LG’s ‘Wing’ is the world’s first T-shaped dual-display smartphone — the first screen can rotate into a T-shaped design, thanks to the sliding mechanism. Luckily, we also know how the smartphone actually works as the first hands-on video of ‘Wing’ just leaked online.
As you can see, the leaked of the hands-on video is only eight seconds, which means this is not a detailed visual representation of how the smartphone actually works. Nevertheless, the leaked video does give a glimpse of what the smartphone looks like in a T-shaped form factor.
The ‘Wing’ smartphone is part of LG’s “Explorer Project”. The company expects that the project will “deliver much-needed curiosity and excitement to the mobile sector.”
The smartphone is rumoured to feature a 6.8-inch main screen alongside a 4-inch secondary display with a 1:1 aspect ratio. Rumour also has it that the dual-display phone will be powered by the Snapdragon 765G and will pack a 64MP primary camera. The leaked render also confirms 2 additional lenses at the back.
We have no information on the price of the device, but considering the fact that it takes a lot of engineering effort to make such a device, we expect the price point to be somewhere around $1,000.
As we approach the release date, which happens to be September 14, we’ll know more about the smartphone.
