LG has unveiled the much-hyped LG Wings smartphone with two screens that can swivel aside with a flick. The company is innovating on the dual-screen concept presented a few years back. It comes with two screens attached on top of each other, mechanically and appears like any other smartphone at first glance. But when it swivels is where the magic begins. Let us explore the specialty of LG Wing smartphone.
Benefits of the Swivel mechanism
When the smartphone is in swivel mode, you can see two screens stacked vertically and horizontally. This allows users to use two apps or one-two instances of the same app. This opens the door to a multitude of use cases. LG has optimized the software to let you take advantage of it. For instance, you can watch Youtube videos on one screen and read comments on the vertical screen control media on the second screen while watching it on the other. You can view the video in its entirety on screen and edit the same on the other.
It comes with a Grip lock-mode so that it can reject unnecessary touches on the secondary display as you hold the smartphone. One unique feature of the LG Dual is that you can use it as a gimbal to shoot perfectly stable videos. one of the cameras attached to one body would shoot the footage while on the other you can adjust the gimbal and allow it to pan, tilt, and follow subjects easily using the one-handed joystick UI with a dedicated menu. Thanks to the AI and software optimization, the phone can track a moving object producing high-quality videos. The company says that the swiveling mechanism has been tested for over 200,000 rotations, which is over 5 years of use even if you swivel 100 times every day.
