Over the past couple of months, LG has been working behind closed doors on something that they’re calling the explorer project. Where they get to experiment with unusual phone designs and interesting new ideas. The first product to come out of this explorer project is the LG wing. And really just looking at it it’s a breath of fresh air. It’s also incredibly expensive at around 1,000 Bucks. So what are you getting for the Money? These are the key features of the LG wing.
Built & Design
When closed, the LG wing looks like a regular smartphone. Perhaps a bit oversized. at 260 grams it’s a little heavier than most and even the far from small galaxy note 20 ultra is lighter at 208 grams. It’s not too thick but I still wouldn’t say that it’s a phone you can easily use one-handed.
There is a fast optical fingerprint reader on the main screen that seems to work quite reliably and so far it seems like a standard 2020 phone. It even has ip54 dust and water protection and it’s military-standard compliant. We have the illusion sky version of the phone but you can also buy it in the aurora gray coloring.
The glass back has a matte texture to it and an off-center camera bump that sticks out quite a bit. In general, the phone looks really clean and elegant and I’m loving LG’s new design language. Flip it open and you get to experience the full t-shaped wing design. The swivel mechanism feels quite smooth and it might remind some of you of phones like the T-mobile sidekick or older smartphones with slide-out keyboards.
Speaking of the screen the regular display is a 6.8-inch P-OLED panel with a Full HD resolution and a regular 60-hertz refresh rate. There’s no notch or punch hole so you get to enjoy the entire display. The 3.9-inch g-o-lid baby screen has a squarish aspect ratio. The media isn’t quite as sharp on it and letters can look a little blurry when compared to the front screen.
Performance of LG Wing
The LG wing sports a 5g capable snapdragon 765g chipset and 8 GB of RAM. This is plenty for daily use especially if you mainly use it for videos but it should be able to handle most games easily too. The wing has android 10 with LG’s UI on top.
Battery & Charging
The phone has a 4,000 milliamp-hour battery. In today’s day and age, one has to wonder is this enough to power both screens for a longer period of time. At least it has a quick charge of 4.0. So even if it runs out of juice quickly recharging should be a breeze.
As far as cameras are concerned, The LG wing is also unusual. There’s a pop-up selfie camera that’s a 32-megapixel shooter. More interesting however is the triple camera setup. It includes a 64-megapixel main shooter, a 13 megapixel ultrawide, and a second 12 megapixel ultrawide but rotated sideways. The second ultrawide is an action camera that allows you to hold the phone by its bottom half while recording video in the special gimbal motion mode.
