LG’s official reveal of its twisting Wing smartphone had a Marvel-esque post-credit scene: a teaser of the subsequent telephone in its new “Explorer Project” vary, which seems to have an expandable, slide-out show.
The clip, as spotted by CNET, doesn’t provide a whole lot of info, only a temporary shot of the facet of the telephone increasing out and sliding again earlier than it lights up and a “hold your breath” catchphrase seems adopted by the LG Explorer Challenge brand. However the message is evident: LG is at the very least enthusiastic about a sliding show for a future machine.
LG’s Explorer Challenge — which it launched with the same wild-looking Wing — is designed to supply a spot for the corporate to discover methods to “breathe new life into what makes a smartphone.” A sliding telephone would definitely appear to suit that invoice.
Sliding telephones aren’t a brand new concept, with ZTE already teasing a prototype earlier this year. However the firm has but to truly ship a tool, and it’s doable that LG would possibly beat it to the punch. Plus, the character of a sliding telephone, with a versatile show that rolls across the facet and again of the machine, makes a whole lot of sense for LG, specifically, provided that the corporate has been working on a rollable TV (that operates beneath an analogous precept) for years.
It’s not clear when LG plans to supply extra info on its sliding telephone, but it surely’s clear that between the Wing and this newest teaser, the corporate is simply getting began at making an attempt out new and fascinating smartphone designs.
