LG Wing launch in India will take place today at a virtual event set for 11.30am. The smartphone is the first under the company’s Explorer Project that aims to bring new usability concepts to the market. Seen as one of the most uniquely designed smartphones of 2020, the LG Wing sports two displays — one of them is a swivel screen that rotates clockwise in 90 degrees.
