Nicely earlier than Google determined it could leak the Pixel four by itself phrases, LG had been teasing and revealing options by itself units for years. At present, the corporate started the advertising and marketing efforts for its subsequent flagship, posting a brief teaser that appears to disclose a triple-screened gadget to be introduced at IFA on September 6.
The video, merely labeled IFA 2019 Invitation, seems to indicate off a tool that opens up with two full-size panels, together with a smaller panel for data on the entrance ‘cowl’ of the cellphone. Somewhat than one seamless panel just like the Galaxy Fold or Mate X, the gadget seems to be composed of two separate panels caught collectively by some kind of hinge.
What isn’t clear from the teaser is whether or not this cellphone is definitely a devoted gadget with three screens, or whether or not it’s only a particular accent that permits you to glue two units right into a frankenphone. You may recall LG revealed such a tool for the V50 again at MWC within the spring, although it’s not obtainable within the US.
It’s attainable that is simply an adjunct for an upcoming V60, however it could be odd for LG to tease a glorified case as a significant announcement. Maybe the corporate has a extra elegant resolution this time round. Both approach, the multi-screen design could possibly be a approach for LG to select up a number of the momenta Samsung and Huawei have misplaced with their delayed foldable telephones; a tool with two separate screens would offer a lot of the productiveness performance of a bendable show with out the identical sturdiness considerations.
LG tends to tease extra of its telephones options within the weeks main as much as an announcement – to not point out the inevitable leaks are most likely on the best way – so it shouldn’t be lengthy till we discover out extra.
