Meet LG Wing, the best Foldable phone in 2020?

LG has been gradually trying to climb back into the smartphone limelight for some time now with some interesting device like the LG Velvet which focused on style and feel instead of raw performance. Instead of making flagship phone to compete with the likes of Samsung and Apple, they have had to focus elsewhere in terms of design and application in order to catch attention due to the stiff competition at the top of the smartphone game—their latest device follows that same pattern.

The name of the device is the LG Wing 5G and is another implementation of foldable technology even though the device does not actually fold. When closed, the wing looks no different from a normal 2020 smartphone but a tiny bit thicker when compared to say a Samsung S20 plus. Spec-wise, it comes with a Snapdragon 765G chipset paired with an 8GB ram and 256GB internal storage with the option to add a microSD card of up to 2TB.  It comes with a 6.8 -inch P-OLED FullVision screen at a resolution of 2460x1080 with a 32-megapixel pop-up camera. The rear camera set up is made up of a 64-megapixel camera with f/1.8 and a 13-megapixel f/1.9 ultrawide with another 12-megapixel ultrawide included which is not something you often see in smartphones. The smaller screen is a 3.9inch OLED display which is hidden beneath the first.

Unlike other folding devices, the LG wing flicks open to reveal a second screen conveniently hidden behind the first. This new form factor opens up a bunch of functionality that wouldn’t work as well on a normal foldable device making the device unique. For instance, you can have a youtube video running on the big screen while scrolling through your Twitter or Instagram feed on the bottom screen. Also while driving, you can have google maps opened on the large screen and still be on a call all at the same time.

A game like Asphalt has also been optimized to take advantage of this set up by having the main game running on the larger screen while your map is up on the smaller screen. LG seems to have optimized the software experience to take advantage of this unique form factor and it won't be long before more third-party app developers do the same for their apps as well. It's impressive that LG has decided to take up this unusual form factor which opens up new ways to use our smartphone and begs the question, is this the best use of a dual-screen set up in 2020?
