LG Wing Officially Announced, Here Are The Specifications

Photo: LG - LG finally officially announced an innovative smartphone with a screen that can be rotated 90 degrees horizontally, namely the LG Wing.

In a live streaming event that was held Monday, September 14, 2020, this Taiwanese company revealed in detail about the capabilities and specifications of this LG Wing .

LG explained that this first rotary screen smartphone carries a 6.8-inch FHD + POLED screen.

Meanwhile, when in "Swivel Mode", this phone will display a secondary display of 3.9 inches, with the main screen changing its horizontal position.

Interestingly, each of these LG Wing screens can display different content from one another or as additional controls for an application.

What does it mean? Take for example when watching videos on YouTube. When in normal mode, the display on the screen will be interrupted by a number of notifications that appear.

In Swivel mode, users can still watch videos without having to be disturbed because notifications will appear automatically on the second screen of the LG Wing .

Hardware LG Wing

Then what about this LG Wing hardware ? The company has installed a Snapdragon 765G processor which already has 5G support.

To boost performance, LG has also included 8GB RAM with 128GB of internal memory and a 4.00mAh capable battery.

Camera LG Wing

In the camera sector, the LG Wing comes with a configuration of three camera lenses capable of 64MP (wide), 13MP (ultra wide), and 12 MP Gimbal Motion Camera (ultra wide).

As the name implies, this camera lens has the ability and control like using a Gimbal when recording video.

With this capability, LG Wing users can record videos without worrying about the results being shaky.

LG is also brave enough not to install a selfie camera on the screen like some of the premium cellphone series on the market.

The company decided to adopt pop-up camera technology - such as the Oppo and Asus series - which is capable of 32MP.

LG Wing Price

Unfortunately, the company still hasn't provided further information about when this phone will go on sale and at what price.

Currently, LG has only confirmed that its new cellphone will be sold in the United States through its exclusive telecommunications service provider partner, Verizon.

Motorola Announces Razr 5G, Its Latest Foldable Smartphone

Photo: The Verge - Earlier this year the legendary Motorola smartphone vendor released its folding smartphone, Razr. This is a rejuvenation of Motorola's iconic line of flip phones.

The main problems with this folding smartphone are quite a lot, starting from the squeaky hinge, the camera that is not very good, and the small battery size.

But in the end, Motorola revealed the second generation of this foldable smartphone, and gave several updates to fix a series of flaws in the first generation Razr.

In this latest Motorola Razr, there is 5G connectivity, a better camera, and also very useful software.

By design, there is not much difference between the old and new Razr. This is because many changes are occurring inside. Starting from the Snapdragon 765G processor combined with 8GB RAM and 256GB storage. With this processor, this smartphone is capable of sub-6GHz 5G connections.

In addition, what has changed is the battery, which this time has a capacity of 2,800mAh.

Another change in hardware is the fingerprint scanner that has been moved to the back of the smartphone. Previously, the fingerprint sensor was on the chin. Not only that, the shape of the camera was completely overhauled.

About the camera, Razr previously only had a 16MP camera and a 5MP selfie camera. This is certainly a very limited camera, with only good guarantees when shooting in the sun.

Well, this time the Razr provides an update with a 48MP main camera equipped with laser autofocus, and combined with a Time-of-Flight sensor, as well as optical stabilization.

In addition, the front camera is also 20MP, although this sensor is actually a 5MP sensor that applies pixel-binning technology.

Finally, it is about software whose functionality is extended to external screens. This makes the front screen when closed can be used for various features.

Motorola itself has not updated its hinge capabilities, so that deficiencies in the hinge system are still maintained.

Regarding the price, this latest Razr is pegged at a cheaper price, which is US$ 1,399 dollars

Google Releases Android 11 Go, A Powerful OS For Small RAM Smartphones

Photo: Google - After announcing a few days ago the stable version of the latest Android 11, Google again announced the Android 11 Go Edition, which is intended for devices with 2GB RAM or less.

This new version of Android for entry level devices brings several performance improvements and the latest privacy features.

Google says that Android 11 Go Edition can increase app launch times by 20 percent compared to Android 10 Go Edition.

Not only that, Gi's Android device will also get the same security and privacy features as those available on regular Android 11 devices. It includes one-time permissions, and auto-reset for apps that haven't been used for a long time.

Android 11 Go Edition also includes support for gesture navigation. This makes sense considering that the Android Go device is getting bigger and bigger.

In addition, there is also a conversations application that allows you to reply to messages directly from the notification.

Google itself has upgraded Android 11 Go support to devices with up to 2GB RAM, from the previous limit of 1.5GB. Additional RAM is said to provide up to 900MB of space, and also an additional 270MB of free memory. This will allow users to run more applications without lag, even for playing games.

Android 11 Go Edition will be available starting next month. It is confirmed that if your device is a Nokia made by HMD Global, the update will be available immediately.

In addition, smartphones with Android 11 Go Edition will also appear on the market as soon as possible.

Samsung Patents Smartphone Camera 6 Lens and Can Move

Photo: - Samsung has just patented a technology that features a configuration of six camera lenses.

Not only that, each camera lens sensor that is believed to be embedded in the Samsung Galaxy S30, can move and tilt separately.

This capability is based on a patent entitled "Apparatus and methods for operating multiple cameras for digital photography".

Based on the rendering design made by LetsGoDigital, there are five wide-angle lenses and one telephoto paired with an LED flash.

But it is not the number of Galaxy S30 lenses that are of concern, but the ability of the mobile camera sensor to move / tilt.

Can Focus in Different Directions

This means that each camera on the Galaxy S30 can look in a different direction from the others, or where the user directs the focus of his smartphone.

Not only that, the camera capability on the Galaxy S30 is also predicted to have a number of improvements in various ways compared to the Galaxy S series that are already on the market today.

Some believe, the lens of the Galaxy S30 camera will have a higher focal length, the ability to take low light photos better, HDR is more enhanced, and the ability to add bokeh effects to panoramic photos.
