The upcoming dual-display smartphone LG Wing has been confirmed to be the first product to be launched under the company’s Explorer project. The project aims to discover new ways of interacting with mobile phones. Last week, LG reportedly revealed the name of the upcoming phone to be LG Wing. Now, the South Korean tech giant confirmed that it will launch on September 14, 2020.
The Explorer project
LG announced in an official release that this will be the first phone to be launched under the company’s new mobile category, the Explorer Project. The project is trying to bring new smartphones that provide a different and ambiguous usability experience.
Although LG has not announced any further details on the upcoming smartphone, it is expected to reveal all the important information at the launch event of LG Wing on September 14 at 10 pm EDT (7:30 pm IST). The virtual event will take place on LG Mobile’s official YouTube channel and its Facebook page.
The LG Wing is a dual-display phone, with a secondary display built into the “T” shape. Due to its distinctive form factor, the phone has generated a lot of buzz on social media, with many rumors. Last month, a leaked video made its first look on a T-shaped screen in action.
This can be placed on the phone holder in the car. Viewed in a vertical position, the primary screen showed navigation details.

On the other hand, the secondary screen which is in a horizontal position behind the main display is shown playing a music player simultaneously. The video also showed that when an incoming call arrived, the main screen continued to display navigation information, while the second screen allowed the user to answer the call.
Earlier this month, LG shared a 30-second video teasing the phone’s rotating display design. The phone is expected to have a 6.8-inch primary display and a 4-inch secondary display with a ratio of 1: 1. The LG Wing can be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC and can have triple rear cameras. It can carry a price tag of $ 1,000 (approximately Rs. 73,470).
