The LG Wing is a smartphone that stands out in the ocean of smartphones straight away. It is a dual-display phone with a swivel mechanism that helps it transition from the standard phone shape to T-shape. This results in a number of unique and useful user cases but due to poor software support, the experience was not exactly smooth. A new software update has now been released to improve those issues.
This new LG Wing software update is currently limited to Verizon-exclusive variants. The biggest addition in the update is the convenience to send apps from the smaller display to the bigger one. LG has added a "Send" option that can be tapped for sending the app in just one go and if it does not work as expected, there is a "Restart" option to re-launch the app. There is also three-fingers gesture support to achieve the same objective.
LG has further added app names to all the apps shown on the second display home screen. It is also easier to distinguish among similar app icons, contact widgets, and shortcuts. The camera app has been updated to support QR code scanning but that needs to be enabled manually from the settings.
As mentioned in the beginning, LG Wing Verizon is the only variant that is getting the update for now. The same update is expected to arrive on other carrier-locked variants and unlocked models in the near future. We will keep you in the loop as and when that happens.
