Some do not consider LG as the ringing name in the world of smartphones compared to other companies that have a larger share of the smartphone market, such as Apple, Samsung, Oppo and Huawei, despite their recent problems, but that does not mean that LG phones are not of sufficient quality as the company is considered one of the largest The companies producing smart phone screens that other smart phone companies depend on, but talking about the smart phone market had to provide something distinctive and different to break into intense competition and attract customers, which is what the Korean company is working on recently.
After the Velvet phone was released, which received many positive reactions since its launch, LG recently announced the new “Wing” phone, which carries a unique idea that the phone contains two screens, but with a new and unprecedented design, and as soon as it is announced, the phone became the focus of The conversation is in the recent period, so through today’s article we will shed light on this new phone to clarify all its details and technical specifications, as well as its official release date and expected price.
The idea of the two screens and the unique design
We will start with the most exciting element of this phone, which is the different design, and because the phone contains two screens, it has been designed in the form of a letter T in English so that the front screen is in a vertical position and can be rotated at a 90-degree angle so that the screen becomes horizontal and the display mode is automatically rotated to “Landscape” and to reveal On another screen, a vertical background, which represents almost half the size of the main screen, and the dimensions of the phone while the front screen is closed is about 6.67 * 2.93 * 43. inches, which indicates that the phone is somewhat thick, which is normal considering the presence of two screens one above the other.
As for the screens themselves, the front screen is a type of P-OLED characteristic of LG phones and comes with a size of 6.9 inches and a very thin frame where the ratio of the screen size to the total size of the front unit is about 87%, and the screen works with a resolution of 2460 * 1080 pixels, as for the second screen It is a G-OLED type and is closer to a square screen, as the screen size is about 3.9 inches, and it works with a resolution of 1240 * 1080 pixels, and both screens operate at a refresh rate of 60Hz.
As for how the two screens work, you can use the basic screen in the normal mode like any other phone, but once the screen is rotated, the back screen is turned on and thus the phone’s operating system works to show a bar of applications to choose one of them to work on the main screen as well as choose what you want to work On the back screen.
For example, you can play a game on the front screen because it has the best resolution, run one of the chat programs on the back screen, and do both tasks together, as if you are using two separate phones. The system also allows running two copies of the same application on the front and back screen at the same time.
Some applications will also be programmed differently on this phone, so that they can use the two screens together to display the main application screen on the first screen and show the application’s control settings on the other screen, which will be a great thing in applications such as YouTube, which when you run it in this way, you can watch the video in full screen On the first screen and showing the video control settings on the second screen.
It was also necessary to take care of the phone processor as long as the two screens can be run separately, so the phone will come with a Snapdragon 765G processor, which contains eight cores, the first with a frequency of 2.4 GHz and another core at a frequency of 2.2 GHz and six other cores at a frequency of 1.8 GHz, and it also includes an Adreno 620 graphics processor.
Memory and storage capacity
The phone will come in one version in terms of memory size of 8 GB, as for the internal storage capacity, the phone uses UFS storage technology and comes in two versions, the first with a storage capacity of 128 GB and the second version with a capacity of 256 GB, and the phone also supports the installation of a storage medium or an external memory card of the type of microSD And it supports a storage capacity of up to 2 terabytes.
The cameras will also be affected by the different design of the phone, as initially the phone will come with a basic rear camera of 64 MB and an f / 1.8 lens slot, and through the LG camera application you can control the camera and zoom mode while opening the main screen by showing the control settings on the second screen.
The phone also includes 2 cameras for “Wide Angle”, the first 13 mega-pixel camera, which supports portrait mode or “Portait”, which is the camera that will shoot when the main screen is closed, and the second 12-megapixel camera supports landscape photography, which will work When you rotate the main screen and turn on the sub screen, as the camera sensor starts rotating at an angle of 90 degrees when you rotate the screen to shoot in “Landscape” mode.
The rear cameras also support shooting video at 4K quality at 30 frames / second and shooting at frame rates up to 60 frames / second in Full HD or 1080P quality.
As for the front camera, it is a mobile camera that comes out from the body of the phone up or “Pop-up” and works with a quality of 32 mega pixels and a lens slot of f / 1.9 and supports “HDR” mode and wide photography and filming videos up to Full HD or 1080P quality at a frame rate of 30 frames / the second.
The phone supports 5G network connectivity and also supports the fifth generation of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections, in addition to support for NFC technology, but it has not yet been determined whether the feature will be supported in all countries of the world or only in certain countries as sometimes phones are issued with NFC technology in some Asian countries only , And the phone will be released with the Android 10 operating system, in only two colors, gray and sky blue.
The phone will come with a Li-Po fixed battery with a capacity of 4000 mAh that supports fast charging as well as wireless charging, and the phone will also include a fingerprint sensor at the bottom of the main screen. As for the ports, the phone will come with a Type-C port version 3.1 and also supports the “OTG” feature, which will provide connection to external storage devices or any other devices on the phone, but unfortunately the phone will not contain the famous 3.5 mm headphone output.
