Footage of an alleged device from LG called the LG Wing have leaked out onto YouTube ahead of a planned September 14 event.
It appears as though the smartphone race has taken a drastic turn. It started out with phone makers battling each other for the best camera, the biggest battery, the highest resolution screens. Now that all major phone makers are on an almost equal playing field, companies like Samsung and LG are taking it to the extreme.
While Samsung tries to bring back flip phones like it’s 2005 again with the Galaxy Z Flip, LG seems to be exploring some weird swivel phone which can really only be described as bizarre if the above video is legitimate and that is indeed a new phone LG is going to be announcing.
It makes me wonder, who is the target market for a device like this? Is it people who want futuristic phones that look like preschool arts and crafts creations? Maybe I am missing out on something here, but the LG Wing (if it is a real device) is one of the weirdest things I’ve seen in 2020 and it has been a strange year.
