LG has introduced a new smartphone form factor into the market with its new T-shaped mobile the LG Wing, The LG Wing is the first device from LG’s explorer project which aims to implement new form factors in smartphones to explore undiscovered usability concepts

The T-shape design also improves the multitasking functionality of the device.
Several use cases of the T-shaped design are listed on the LG Wing’s official Website, You can watch videos in the primary display and use it’s player controls on the secondary display or use a messaging application on the small screen while gaming on the bigger primary display. Multi-tasking on android has been taken to a whole new level by LG with this revolutionary form factor. The possibilities of how you can use this are unlimited.

One other awesome feature that LG included with this form Factor is the new Gimbal Mode in which you can convert your LG Wing into a handheld Gimbal. According to LG, the camera has “Full pro-grade stabilization is built right in”.
You also get the dual recording feature that lets you record simultaneously on both the front and back camera. You can record from both the cameras in either a split screen mode or a picture in picture mode.
