When the latter is enabled, the secondary display can rotate by 90 degrees.

The phone is backed by a 4,000mAh battery with Quick Charge 4.0+ 25W fast charging and 10W wireless charging. It runs Android 10, has an in-display fingerprint scanner, IP54 water resistance, USB Type-C port, and more.
In addition to this, the phone will come with three years of software updates, as confirmed by LG. This is applicable for other phones too.
Should you buy?
The LG Wing, when launched, came across as an intriguing device, but expensive at the time same. With a different form factor, it is attractive and with the new price tag, can lure people into buying it. Having said that, the design is bulky, prone to scratches, and the on-paper specs aren’t too great.
But the fact that the LG Wing will get software updates and five years of service can be an option for those who want to keep it for nostalgia.
