The LG Wing has now got an official US price and launch date in the US. Verizon will be carrying arguably the year’s most interesting handset for US$999 while it will reach the hands of customers on October 15.

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 tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have grown to enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture out now on Spotify.
