LG Wing has been launched in India as the latest smartphone by the South Korean company. Offering new use cases, the LG Wing comes with a unique dual screen design that includes a swivel screen, which rotates clockwise in 90 degrees. The smartphone also features proprietary software that brings a Swivel Mode to orient the main screen interface in landscape and give space to users to interact with the second screen simultaneously. The LG Wing was originally announced in global markets last month and debuted in South Korea a few weeks ago. It comes under the company's Explorer Project that is aimed to bring new usability concepts to the market. Alongside, LG also launched the LG Velvet Dual Screen smartphone in the country.
LG Wing price in India has been set at Rs. 69,990 for the base 128GB storage variant. The phone comes in Aurora Gray and Illusion Sky colour options and will go on sale from November 9.
The LG Wing debuted in South Korea with a starting price of KRW 1,098,900 (roughly Rs. 71,600). The 256GB variant has not been launched in India.
The dual-SIM (Nano) LG Wing runs on Android 10 with Q OS on top and features a 6.8-inch full-HD+ (1,080x2,460 pixels) P-OLED FullVision display as the primary screen with a 20.5:9 aspect ratio and 395ppi of pixel density. The secondary display, on the other hand, comes with a 3.9-inch full-HD+ (1,080x1,240 pixels) G-OLED panel that provides a 1.15:1 aspect ratio and a pixel density of 419ppi. Under the hood, there is an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G SoC, coupled with 8GB of RAM.

The camera setup is also equipped with a hexa-motion stabiliser and works with a Gimbal Motion Camera feature that allows users to control the camera angles of the dual ultra-wide-angle lenses using a virtual joystick available on the secondary screen.
The LG Wing also comes with a 32-megapixel camera sensor on a pop-up module along with an f/1.9 lens for selfies and video chats.
