Earlier this year, we heard rumors of LG working on a dual-screen phone codenamed Wing. Android Authority has aupposedly now obtained an exclusive video that shows a near-final version of the phone, making us think its release date can’t be too far away.

The Wing’s orientation in the video shows it can be used in regular portrait orientation — with the second screen on the side — as well as in a T-formation. The video shows full-screen navigation on the main screen with music playback controls and an inbound call on the second screen.

It’s interesting to see that neither display features a notch or punch hole cutout. LG has been into the idea of second screens since the original LG V10 in 2015. That focus shifted to dual-displays over the past year, first with the LG V50 ThinQ and the LG G8X in 2019. The LG V60 and LG Velvet from this year also have the ability to connect to a second display that is the same size as the phone itself.

According to Android Authority, the rumored LG Wing will include a 6.8-inch main screen and 4-inch second screen powered by the Snapdragon 765 or 765G.
