LG’s Wing is a weird, surprisingly practical smartphone

When it comes to offering more screen real estate on a smartphone, manufacturers have two options: either go with a flexible display à la Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold 2, or attach a secondary screen like the LG Velvet. While the latter is obviously the easier (and cheaper) option, both implementations have a common problem: multi-tasking only works well when both apps are in portrait orientation, due to the design of most apps.

This can be a big problem. If I watch YouTube and Netflix videos in landscape, but then load Twitter or Facebook on the bottom half of the phone, these would be stretched wide, making it difficult to read text or view images. This is where the LG Wing 5G’s bizarre swivel-screen design comes in, and having used a pre-production unit for about a week (and having used both the Velvet and the Galaxy Fold), this

The LG Wing, a unique dual-screen phone that you swivel open, will launch on Verizon on Oct. 15 for $1,000. The phone will be available for preorder starting on Thursday. 

The Wing has two screens, one of which swivels on top of the other, allowing for things like multitasking and unique gameplay experiences. It also has three rear cameras, including an ultra-wide camera with a built in gimbal to stabilize video even while you’re moving around a lot. 

CNET’s Lynn La says the LG Wing isn’t for everybody, but found that the phone’s unique design gives multitasking and recording video a boost. LG estimates that the phone is durable enough to survive 200,000 rotations over the course of five years. 

Verizon is offering a handful

Verizon is about to launch preorders for the weird LG Wing smartphone

Verizon is boasting that it will be the first wireless carrier in the United States to offer LG’s strange new Wing smartphone, a model that features two displays with a pivoting arrangement. If you’re nostalgic for old school phones that had hidden, sliding keyboards, it’s easy to see the LG Wing’s appeal — you can get all of the benefits of swiping on a small keyboard with the visual real estate of landscape mode.

If you’ve been using mobile phones long enough, there’s a good chance that at one point in time, you used a phone that had a physical keyboard. These phones differed from traditional candy bar-style phones by offering a full miniature QWERTY keyboard hidden behind the display and accessible via hinges. A full keyboard made it easier to type out text messages and emails.

Of course, society soon transitioned to touchscreens, which have many of their own

LG Wing Smartphone Goes On Sale Oct. 15 for $999 at Verizon

(Credit: LG)

If you’re a fan of LG’s dual-screen Wing phone, Verizon will start selling it on Oct. 15th for $999. 

Verizon plans on becoming the first US carrier to offer the unique product, which contains a second screen that can swivel out of the smartphone. 

Introduced last month, the LG Wing may look pretty ridiculous at first glance. However, PCMag had a chance to try out the product, and we actually found it’s pretty great for multi-tasking. The device itself is basically a normal smartphone. But when you swivel out the second display, you can get more screen space. 

Using the phone to view two different apps.

The key benefit is how the dual screens can enable you to have one app open on the top screen, and another app open on the bottom. In Wing mode, the phone can also easily capture wide-angle photos.

However, when phone was first unveiled, LG remained mum on the pricing.

Fortem Technologies Adds New Capabilities to Autonomously Capture a Wider Array of Drone Threats, Including Faster Moving Fixed Wing Drones

Pleasant Grove, UT, Sept. 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Fortem Technologies Inc., a leader in airspace security and defense for detecting and defeating dangerous drones, announced today advancements to its SkyDome® System software that allow the Fortem DroneHunter® to autonomously shift into one of three various modes to best defeat a threatening drone. DroneHunter, the world’s premier AI-driven interceptor drone, autonomously determines whether to chase, attack or defend against the threatening drone depending on the drone’s size, speed and trajectory. These advancements allow DroneHunter to pursue and safely capture an even wider range of drone threats including faster fixed wing drones.

When in defense mode, the DroneHunter maneuvers in front of the target drone, anticipating its approach. Once in range, DroneHunter fires the NetGun precisely as the target attempts to pass. The defensive mode position also facilitates a radically faster detect-to-capture-time, as the time previously required to get behind the
