LG Wing 5G and Velvet Dual screen launched in India. The wing comes with Versatile Multi-Screen Form Factor with Swivel Mode. Velvet on the other hand comes with a Detachable Dual Screen Design. The pricing seems to be way too high considering the Indian market jam-packed with 865 5G phones. The design is appealing but, LG has a habit of lowering the prices post-launch.

LG Wing 5G and Velvet seem to be the phones with a lot of innovation behind, but the Indian market can be challenging. Companies with Snapdragon 865 and above are already present with some good prices and features. Apple iPhones and Samsung Galaxy series have superb pricing during Sale. Sale for LG Wing starts 9th Nov and for Velvet on 30th Oct. Both phones will be available on E-commerce sites and Offline retail partners.
I feel LG should have come with a better SOC and also Android 11 which gives them some things to compete against. Still, time will tell how great these phones will be.
