After foldable screen smartphones, here are the rotating screen phones

Steph Deschamps / September 15, 2020

 

South Korean electronics giant LG on Monday unveiled a rotating-screen smartphone, a world first, where the latest trend in the industry was foldable screens, like those from Samsung, Huawei or Motorola.

 

Unfolded, the LG Wing looks like a regular smartphone with a 6.8-inch main screen. It can be tilted 90 degrees by holding it by the back shell and pushing it with a finger. Once in swing mode, the entire front of the phone rotates, switching the main screen to landscape mode and revealing a second 3.9-inch screen.

 

The goal of this innovative device is to allow more flexibility and multitasking but also to extend the display of certain applications on the two screens, explains one at LG. This project is part of the company’s desire to explore concepts never before exploited in order to develop the smartphone industry.

 

The Wing is expected to be available in the Benelux during the fourth quarter.
