LG’s upcoming dual-display smartphone, the LG Wing, will be released on October 5 according to an online report. The phone was initially expected to be launched on September 14 but it is likely that the company will present it in a virtual event to be held on the same day. According to industry officials quoted in the report, the release date was set for September 25 but it has now been postponed to the beginning of October.
Industry sources told a Korean news site that preparations were underway for the smartphone’s release on 5 October. The LG Wing will be the first product to be launched under LG’s Explorer project, which aims to bring new smartphones providing a distinct and ambiguous experience experience.
LG had said that after an official teaser of LG Wing, as per the report, there will be a four-week trial with select users. Only then will the official launch.
Due to the LG Wing’s unconventional design and T-shaped screen, it has been subject to a lot of speculation and leaks.
Last month, a leaked video showed that when incoming calls came to the phone, navigation information was displayed on the main screen while the second screen allowed the user to answer the call. Earlier this month, the South Korean company shared a 30-second teaser of the LG Wing’s rotating display design.
