We’re intrigued by what we’ve seen of the LG Wing so far, an innovative-looking smartphone with a second flip-up screen, and now we have more pricing details, courtesy of sources close to LG.

According to the XDA developers, people with connections at LG say the phone will sell for around $ 1,000 (around £ 750 / AU $ 1,355) in the US, that puts it alongside several current flagship phones in the US. price terms, but it is more affordable than us. they expected.

It’s still a lot of money to spend on a smartphone, but maybe not that outrageous considering it has two screens instead of one. The foldable Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2, for example, is expected to cost nearly double that $ 1,000 figure.

Previous rumors had put the LG Wing’s price at around 1,900,000 Korean won, or roughly $ 1,610, so it’s reassuring to hear that the next phone might not cost as much outside of its local market after all.

Of course, manufacturers do not typically use direct currency conversions, with local variations in markets and taxes. It’s perhaps easier to say that the LG Wing is rumored to cost the same as a 5.8-inch 64GB iPhone 11 Pro.

We haven’t heard too much about the phone at this point, but the phone apparently comprises a 6.8-inch screen and a 4-inch screen. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G is said to be the mid-range processor chip that runs it all.

Why do you need two screens, can we hear you ask? Well, one use case we’ve seen in leaked video (embedded above) is to have music player controls available while also using turn-by-turn navigation on the main screen.

LG has been experimenting with multiple displays for years, and the 2020 LG Velvet comes with a dual-screen case that gives you twice the screen space. Microsoft Surface Duo is another dual-screen phone to launch this year.
