LG has confirmed that its new dual-screen device will be dubbed the ‘Wing’. The tech company teased the swivelling form factor smartphone in a concept video last week and is expected to officially launch it on 14 September.

According to LG, this new smartphone is part of its Explorer Project which aims to “deliver distinctive and yet unexplored usability experiences, a strategy that tackles uncharted territory in the industry”.

“LG and platform partners feel it is vitally important to demonstrate to consumers new and differentiated user experiences in the smartphone space,” says Morris Lee, president of LG’s Mobile Communications Company.

“LG has always been a pioneer in pushing the envelope of smartphone form factors, the only way to bring about much-needed innovation in the mobile market.”

LG Introduces Wearable Air Purifier

LG has unveiled its PuriCare Wearable Air Purifier – a ‘new level of portable protection’. According to the company, this wearable purifier will employ two H13 HEPA filters, similar to the filters used in LG’s home air purifier products.

With its Dual Fans and patented Respiratory Sensor, LG’s wearable air purifier allows users to take in clean, filtered air while the Respiratory Sensor detects the cycle and volume of the wearer’s breath and adjusts the dual three-speed fans accordingly.

The fans automatically speed up to assist air intake and slow down to reduce resistance when exhaling to make breathing effortless.

Ergonomically designed based on extensive facial shape analysis, LG PuriCare Wearable is expected to fit snugly on the user’s face to minimize air leakage around the nose and chin.

The efficient and lightweight 820mAh battery offers up to eight hours of operation in low mode and two hours on high.
