NeverSm1le, 31 Aug 2020Because it have 2 screens and can rotate while Velvet can't? A CPU is all that matter to you?It is not a CPU, it is a SOC. Where midrange SOC's typically suffer is modems and GPU performance. For power users wanting multiple displays to perform work duties, or entertainment focused users looking at gaming both of theses downfall areas can be very important. Even when we are looking at doing more streaming type content gpu decoding, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and Cellular latency becomes big deals and all in all a 800 series SOC provides a smoother experience. Add to that perceived value. How many people say more than $700 is way to much for a device. Those of us willing to purchase $1000 + devices or wanting the early adopter type devices usually are enthusiasts seeking top teir, or those just wanting zero compromises devices.

Love the innovative design, probably not for me but its an exciting device!
Why is this thing $1000 yet it's powered by the snapdragon 765G? It should at least be the same price as the LG velvet

"The Wing has a main screen that rotates into landscape mode to reveal a smaller secondary panel under it and create that T shape. The main display is rumored to be 6.8", while the smaller one is around 4"."
So my hunch about the second screen is right. Cannot wait to see that phone officially released.
1000 bucks for a midranger is same crazyness like 2000 for fold with a screen which can be damaged or stratchd by nails.

LG has superb ideas. But their implementation, very often, especially from a design perspective, is a monumental disaster. This is ine such disaster. LG should have concentrated on making a foldable (apart from the dual screen phones) and offering something the others did not.
LG needs a head a of Design.
Very few people will buy that terrible gimmick phone, ESPECIALLY considering the price.
So proud to be part of the the ecosystem of Android where we can get our hands on crazy designs like this. Love it 🙌
