From the look of the things the South Korean giant LG is yet not ready to leave their mobile business alone despite losses from last few quarters. Back in 2016, the company announced LG G5 as the first modular flagship phone. Unfortunately, the experiment didn't work well due to the lack of new modular parts.
In 2017 the company announced G6 with glass and metal sandwich design. It was the first phone in the market with native support of Google Assistant. Last year LG once again revamped their G-lineup flagship design. Now the MWC 2019 is just around the corner, we have exciting info regarding the LG phones for this year MWC show.
As per the latest report from South Korean media, LG is planning to announce a new phone at the MWC with dual connected display screens. Initially it was rumored to be the G8 ThinQ but later on, it was updated the dual display phone will be one of the multiple phones LG is planning to introduce at the event.
Unlike the upcoming foldable phones from Samsung and Huawei, it won't be ultra expensive. Instead of having a regular secondary display, LG will introduce a connected display which won't be attached all the time.
According to the Korean media report, the main display width will be 3-inches whereas according to TechRadar the main display will be 4-inches. Both the displays combine screen will be 7-inches. This clearly indicates the reason of second combined display is to provide large display screen without increasing the overall size.
At the moment it is still in the dark how LG will be connecting both the display but the method is expected to be more seamless than the ZTE Axon M. Another good thing about the LG's phone will be its pricing which is expected to be below $1000 whereas the foldable phone is rumored to cost around $2000.
This could help the company to reverse their fortune in the smartphone market. One of the reasons behind LG phones failure is lack of stand out feature, the dual connected display could become its standout feature.
