LG came back into the limelight with the LG G8X ThinQ during the Flipkart Big Billion Days sale a few days ago. However, LG has been doing some exciting stuff internationally and today, it brought a concept device to India. It is called the LG Wing and it will cost Rs 69,990 in India. It is the world’s first smartphone with a rotating (or swiveling) display that makes way for a smaller secondary display. It will go on sale from November 9.

The LG Wing focuses on exploring a new form factor for a swiveling display. LG promises a lot of new possibilities with the Wing. One can use the new form factor to use two apps at once, and even get the benefits of having gimbal-like camera stability. LG has also launched the Velvet for India starting at a price of Rs 36,990 for the standard model. There’s also the dual-screen accessory variant of the LG Velvet priced at Rs 49,990.

The LG Wing has a main 6.8-inch curved P-OLED display. It offers full HD+ resolution and a high aspect ratio of 20.5:9. The second screen is smaller at 3.9 inches by using a G-OLED panel, which also has a full HD+ resolution and an aspect ratio of 1.15:1.

The LG Wing uses a motorized pop-up module to accommodate a single 32-megapixel selfie camera. It has a “fall detection” feature, which allows the camera to pop-up automatically in depth if you drop it. There’s a triple-camera setup at the back, consisting of a 64-megapixel primary camera. This is accompanied by a 12-megapixel ultrawide camera with support for swivel mode for taking photos. There’s another 13-megapixel ultrawide camera present here.

With the swiveling mode, the LG Wing can do special camera tricks. There’s a pan following mode, lock mode, simultaneous recording from the rear camera, and selfie camera, to gimbal mode. The gimbal mode displays the feed on the main screen while a virtual joystick on the secondary screen is available for operation. It also gets six motion sensors that work with stabilization software to keep videos stable.

The LG Velvet is the latest conventional flagship-grade smartphone from LG with a new design approach, especially at the rear with its signature “raindrop” camera design. The entire phone weighs 180 grams despite the glass and metal build. The Velvet carries on from the G8X with its dual screen accessory and support for a stylus. The Velvet will go up on sale starting October 30. The Indian variant of the Velvet is slightly different from the global variant. Instead of the midrange Snapdragon 765G 5G chip, the Velvet in India is using the older Snapdragon 845 chip.

One of the biggest highlights with the Velvet is the dual-screen accessory. The Velvet already has a large 6.8-inch full HD P-OLED display with curved edges, a waterdrop notch, and an aspect ratio of 20.5:9. With the dual-screen accessory, you get another 6.8-inch OLED display attached to the phone via a case. The hinge allows the second display to be held at any angle, just like a laptop. LG says that users can view and simultaneously work on multiple apps while also chatting with friends, playing mobile games, watching sports, posting pictures, shopping, and more.

The Velvet comes with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage as standard in India, although you can expand via micro SD card. The phone runs on a 4,300mAh battery and charges via a USB-C port. The Velvet has a triple camera setup at the back, comprising of a 48-megapixel sensor for the main camera. This is accompanied by an 8-megapixel ultra-wide camera and a 5-megapixel depth camera. The front camera relies on a 16-megapixel camera for selfies and video calls.

Other standout features of the LG Velvet include IP68 certification for water and dust resistance. The Velvet also features an FM radio – a novelty in premium phones these days, and there’s support for LG Pay. As with all LG smartphones, the Velvet comes certified with a MIL-STD 810G durability rating.
