LG’s Wing swivel-phone will reach the hands of US customers on October 15. It will be available through Verizon for US$999 with pre-orders starting on October 1. US customers look like they will be the first international market to receive the device with LG using its launch event earlier this month to reveal that it will cost €1,100 and will be available in Europe from November. Naturally, LG’s home market of South Korea will see customers able to buy the phone from mid-October as well.

The Wing was officially launched by LG on September 14 and is part of its new Explorer Project series of smartphones that are expected to herald more experimental designs. The LG Wing certainly fits that bill featuring a 6.8-inch OLED main display that swivels into a landscape mode revealing a smaller 3.9-inch OLED underneath. While there are dual-screen devices on the market, like the Microsoft Surface and foldable devices like the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2, LG is the first to launch a device with this form factor.

To help keep the device priced below US$1,000, LG has fitted the Wing with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G. Although an upper mid-range chipset, it is sufficiently powerful that Wing users should still enjoy relatively lag-free performance. It will ship in a single configuration with 8 GB RAM and 128 GB expandable storage and includes a decently sized 4,000 mAh battery with support for 25 W charging. It ships with a customized UI powered by Android 10.

I have been writing about consumer technology over the past ten years, previously with the former MacNN and Electronista, and now Notebookcheck since 2017. My first computer was an Apple ][c and this sparked a passion for Apple, but also technology in general. In the past decade, I’ve become increasingly platform agnostic and love to get my hands on and explore as much technology as I can get my hand on. Whether it is Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Nintendo, Xbox, or PlayStation, each has plenty to offer and has given me great joy exploring them all. I was drawn to writing about tech because I love learning about the latest devices and also sharing whatever insights my experience can bring to the site and its readership.
