LG is trying something new with its upcoming “Wing” smartphone, and now, we might have an idea of when to expect its debut and what its price will be.
XDA-Developers cites sources familiar with LG’s plans for the “Wing” who claim that the device’s pricing will be lower than the claimed ₩1,900,000/~$1,600 price HeraldCorp recently reported. Apparently, LG “Wing” will carry a price of “around $1,000” when it launches in the United States.
This news comes after two clips of the LG Wing hit the web showing off what appears to be a “near-final” design. The phone resembles an older LG “dumb” phone that many probably remember from 2008’s Iron Man. There’s a primary 6.8-inch display that has a smaller 4-inch display underneath.
Given the current landscape of pricing for smartphones that try to break the mold such as Galaxy Fold, Z Flip, and Microsoft’s new Surface Duo, $1,000 really doesn’t seem like a crazy number for the LG “Wing.” Of course, one grain of salt here is that LG’s device will be using the lower-end Snapdragon 765G processor instead of the 8-series chips in those aforementioned devices.
Whatever the story ends up being on pricing, we can’t wait to see what LG’s wacky device will bring to the table.
