LG has offered the first public acknowledgement of its rumored “Wing” handset, stated to be a gadget with two screens in a swiveling type factor. A teaser video posted to YouTube hints at the sliding mechanism and serves as an invitation to a statement occasion on September 14 th.
In a separate press release, LG says the new gadget will belong to an effort and product category it calls the Explorer Job. The task is planned to “deliver much-needed curiosity and excitement to the mobile sector,” LG says, and “will focus exclusively on new usability that is discovered with ingenious styles.” The just recently released Velvet, meanwhile, will form part of LG’s “Universal Line.”
Reporting on the Wing up until now has actually suggested that it’ll have one screen behind another that can be rotated 90 degrees horizontally, resulting in a T-shaped dual-screen gadget. Possible usage cases might be seeing widescreen video in what would feel like one-handed portrait orientation, or– as alleged dripped video footage just recently showed— allowing for full-screen driving navigation with music controls off to the side.
Today’s statement recommends that LG wants to get weird in an effort to distinguish itself in the crowded mobile market. We’ll be watching along at 10 AM ET on September 14 th to learn more.
