But while the company is unlikely to challenge the huge worldwide popularity of Samsung, Apple, Huawei, or Xiaomi's phones anytime soon, last year's 5G-enabled Velvet and Wing could well kindle a creative resurgence of sorts set to be continued with 2021's aptly named Rollable.
start selling as early as this quarter, it's hard to think of a more unconventional handset you can actually buy in the US right now. Somewhat surprisingly, Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile have all picked up the dual-screen Snapdragon 765 mid-ranger in the last few months, charging between $999.99 and $1,049.99 for it straight off the bat.Although the quirky LG Wing is arguably not as groundbreaking as the rollable device the company might be planning to
If that felt a little excessive, you should be happy to know the nation's top "Un-carrier" and second-largest overall wireless service provider is currently asking as little as $696 for your choice of an "Illusion Sky" or "Aurora Gray" Wing 5G with a generous 256 gigs of internal storage space on deck.
There are absolutely no strings attached to this deal... because it doesn't technically seem to be a deal. Instead, T-Mobile appears to have simply reduced the "regular" price of this one-of-a-kind device by a cool $303, most likely for good.
Magenta does these types of things from time to time, with the LG V60 ThinQ immediately springing to mind after similarly dropping from a starting price of $799.99 to $699.99 back in May 2020. In case you're wondering, the company's conventional 2020 flagship never returned to its original price and is now in fact available for an even lower $649.99.
While far from a perfect or very well-polished device, the LG Wing 5G certainly hides a few neat dual display tricks up its sleeve that make it an absolute bargain at $696 (or $29 a month for two years with installment plans) for those curious about trying new things. The 256GB storage, by the way, is paired with a decent 8 gigs of RAM, and a 4,000mAh battery is in charge of powering the rotating 6.8-inch P-OLED panel, as well as the secondary 3.9-inch G-OLED screen underneath it.
There are also three solid cameras on the back of the versatile phone, including a main 64MP shooter, while the motorized pop-up 32MP selfie snapper is hidden behind the primary display when not in use. Not bad for less than 700 bucks, eh?
