It has been a few months since a render of the LG Wing appeared online. However, a working version of the device has now been shown, offering a look at how it could be utilised for multitasking. The release of the LG Wing may not be that far away either, Android Authority reports.

The LG Wing looked like a crazy prototype when it emerged online earlier this year, but it seems that LG actually has plans to release the twist-out smartphone. The company has already dipped its toes into the world of unconventional smartphone design with its range of Dual Screen accessories and the second screen on the LG V20, but the Wing takes this to a new level. Hidden beneath one display, which looks to have a 21:9 aspect ratio, is a secondary square panel. 

Android Authority has obtained a short video showcasing the Wing, which the website suggests LG is almost ready to release. The device shown is a "near-final version", so we are not looking at some one-off prototype here. According to Android Authority, the main display is a 6.8-inch panel, while the second screen comes in at 4-inches. A Snapdragon 765 or Snapdragon 765G powers the two displays, rather than something more powerful like the Snapdragon 865 or Snapdragon 865 Plus.

The video shows the LG Wing being used in-lieu of an in-car navigation system, but it does not show how its folding mechanism works. Equally, we cannot determine how thick the device is. Nonetheless, it is an interesting design, albeit one that may be a little hard to hold with one hand.
