South Korean electronics major LG Electronics is set to launch a smartphone with an option for a second screen attachment. The smartphone, whose name hasn’t been finalised, will come with a case with a display, which will enable to double the size of the screen. According to a report, “It’s one of the multiple phones launching at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) trade show in February. While the company is mulling the G8 name, it’s unclear whether the multiple-screen phone will carry the name of its flagship line.”.
Earlier, there were reports that LG could unveil a foldable smartphone like its South Korean rival Samsung. However, this device would certainly be a phone with a second screen add-on. “It’s unclear how the gimmick will work, but it’s certainly different at a time when the company could use different. LG has struggled to stand apart from an increasingly competitive field of smartphone players. While Apple, Huawei and Samsung dominate high-end phone sales and OnePlus and other Chinese makers hit more budget-conscious consumers, LG is caught in the awkward middle,” the report added..
