We know that smartphone makers around the world are working on offering as much as display real estate without making the device bigger and harder to carry around. This is the reason we have seen a surge in the release of foldable phones but if a new report is to be believed, LG has something very unique on its mind.
LG is reported to be working on a dual-display device internally codenamed "WING". The unique thing about the phone is that the secondary display is covered by the main one. It becomes visible only when the main display is rotated sideways and transforms into a T-shaped device.
This results in the main display getting horizontally orientated and thus exposing the secondary square-shaped display. The main display is said to measure 6.8-inches and the second one will be significantly smaller at 4-inches. The combination is said to be helpful in improving user productivity as well as for better user experience.
As it is usually the case with dual-display phones, the primary display will be used for showing some part of the content and secondary display for the remaining part. Let's say, a user can watch YouTube videos on the top display and browse through the comments section on the bottom display. Similarly, a photo can be edited at the top while all editing tools and options are accessible at the bottom.
This is undoubtedly a unique approach that would make the LG Wing stand out in the crowd. However, these are simply concept renders with no authenticity surety. We would suggest our readers take this leak with a grain of salt.
