After showing himself very quickly on the Web a few days ago, the LG Wing should be fully displayed on September 14 on our screens. A presentation of LG’s dual-screen smartphone will take place today, according to a video posted on YouTube. The presentation will be broadcast at 4 p.m. KST.
The Wing – which forms a T when the two screens are deployed – is part of the movement of dual-screen terminals – folding or not – such as Fold and the very recent Galaxy Z Fold 2 from Samsung, or the Huawei mate x and, of course, the Microsoft Surface Duo.
Content consumption, making calls and writing messages will obviously be there. It seems, however, that LG is emphasizing video conferencing. The Korean would be in partnership with specialized platforms and developers to create applications with a dedicated interface. The companies Rave, Ficto, Tubi and Naver would be in the running. Naver, owner of the instant messaging application Line, very popular in Asia, would develop a special web browser for the device according to our American colleagues by Engadget. Qualcomm is also partnering with LG for this launch: its components would be at work under the screens.
The Wing would be one of the products of a new initiative launched by LG, the Explorer Project. It could include much more than smartphones, if we are to believe the few sentences of the video and the rumors that have been running on the Web lately. More details about this Project will undoubtedly be revealed at the conference on September 14th.
