We’re intrigued by what we’ve seen of the LG Wing so far – an innovative-looking smartphone with a flip-out second display – and we have now acquired some more pricing details, courtesy of sources close to LG.
As per XDA Developers, people with connections at LG say the phone will sell for around $1,000 (about £750 / AU$1,355) within the US – that places it alongside a number of present flagship phones in terms of worth level, but it’s extra affordable than we were expecting.
It is still a lot of money to spend on a smartphone, however maybe not so exorbitant when you consider you get two screens instead of one. The folding Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2, for instance, is predicted to cost almost twice that $1,000 figure.
Earlier rumors had put the worth of the LG Wing at around 1,900,000 Korean gained, or roughly $1,610, so it is reassuring to listen to the upcoming phone may not value a lot exterior of its house market after all.
Of course, straight currency conversions aren’t often used by producers, what with native variations in markets and taxes. It is perhaps simpler to say that the LG Wing is rumored to cost the identical as a 5.8-inch, 64GB iPhone 11 Pro.
We haven’t heard too much concerning the phone up to this point, however, the handset apparently includes a 6.8-inch show and a 4-inch show. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G is said to be the mid-range processor chip operating all the pieces.
Why would you want two screens, we can hear you ask? Well, one use case we have seen in a leaked video (embedded above) is having music participant controls obtainable whilst you’re additionally utilizing step-by-step navigation on the main screen.
LG has been experimenting with multiple screens for years now, with the 2020 LG Velvet coming with a dual-screen case that gives you twice as much screen area. The Microsoft Surface Duo is another dual-screen phone that’s launching this year.
