ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Sept. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- LG Electronics USA today announced the upcoming U.S. availability of LG WINGTM 5G. It will be available first from Verizon on Oct. 15 with pre-order beginning Oct. 1. AT&T and T-Mobile will offer it later this fall. Pricing starts at $999.99 and may vary by carrier.
Featuring a first-of-its-kind form factor, LG WING delivers a compelling, new mobile experience. Marrying utility with style, LG WING's primary 6.8-inch OLED Full Vision edge-to-edge screen swivels clockwise rotating 90 degrees to reveal a second 3.9-inch OLED screen.
Swivel Mode delivers extreme multitasking and incredible convenience. Examples of the many ways users can make the most of Swivel Mode include following navigation on the main screen and controlling music on the second screen, watching a YouTube video on the main screen while checking email on the second screen or even keeping up with a live-stream on the main screen while not missing out on what friends are saying in the group chat. Select applications can also be expanded to use both screens at once.
LG WING is also equipped with built-in Gimbal Motion functionality to create smooth video footage while on the move. It boasts three rear cameras – 64MP, 12MP Ultra-Wide, 13MP Ultra-Wide – and a front 32MP Pop-Up Camera. The 12MP Ultra-Wide camera provides functions typically found on a gimbal, such as "joystick," "lock," "follow," "pan follow" and "first-person view" mode.
LG WING is the first device from the LG Explorer Project – an initiative to deliver distinctive and unexplored usability experiences, a strategy that tackles uncharted territory in the industry. LG created the Explorer Project in response to the diverse usage needs of today's smartphone customers and to deliver much-needed curiosity and excitement to the mobile sector.
