The secondary display on the device is a 3.9-inch G-OLED panel with 1240 x 1080 pixels resolution and 1.15:1 aspect ratio. The smartphone features an optical in-display fingerprint sensor and offers a pop-up camera for selfies.
Under-the-hood, LG Wing packs an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G 5G SoC which is built on a 7nm fabrication process. While the graphics duties on the smartphone are handled by the Adreno 620 GPU. LG Wing comes only in one memory configuration, which is 8GB RAM with 128GB storage variants, but the storage can be further expanded by up to 2TB via micro-SD card.
LG Wing runs Android 10 out of the box. The company has already promised three years of Android update for its range of devices including LG Wing.
Coming to the optics, the device features a 64MP triple-rear camera setup along with an LED flash. The primary 64MP comes with OIS, and f/1.8 aperture. It gets accompanied by a 13MP ultra-wide-angle lens with 117° field of view, and f/1.9 aperture. There is also a 12MP ultra-wide-angle gimbal mode camera with 120° field of view, and f/2.2 aperture. For the selfies, the LG Wing offers a 32MP front shooter with f/1.9 aperture.
LG Wing offers a 4,000mAh battery with 25W fast charging and a USB Type-C charging port. The smartphone also supports up to 10W wireless charging. It lacks the 3.5mm audio jack, and so you will have to rely on the Type-C port in case you prefer wired earphones/headphones.
The device weighs just 260grams and measures 169.5 x 74.5 x 10.9 mm. Despite the complex swiveling mechanism, the LG Wing also has a water and dust-resistant IP54 rating. Connectivity options include Dual 4G VoLTE, 2.4/5GHz WiFi, Bluetooth 5.1, NFC, and GPS/GLONASS/Beidou.
