LG Wing surprising mobile universe revolutionizing bet: it doesn't look like anything you've seen before - The South Korean technology firm LG presented this Monday its latest smartphone model, which does not look like any other on the market. This is a cross-shaped dual-screen mobile.
Thus, both glasses overlap at an angle of 90 degrees, having the horizontal 6.8 inches and the vertical 3.9.
"A unique design that offers a completely different mobile experience to its users," the company said in a statement.
The configuration of the LG WING favors the use of multitasking, the main advantage obtained with this double "hidden" screen —which can also close and have a traditional look—.
The same application can be deployed simultaneously in both viewers or 2 apps will be deployed in each of them. It also includes functionality that allows you to set predefined pairs that are commonly used at the same time.

If the screen is extended, YouTube will play a video in the primary, and in the secondary, the user can continue to interact, that is, browse other videos or access comments. In any case, the options to be combined will be multiple.
"To get the most out of the LG WING's unique design, LG has partnered with industry-leading innovation partners," the company said. That is, it is necessary that applications have the ability to adapt to The Shape of the phone.
Another alternative offered by LG WING is to open the browser and calls simultaneously.
Why such a terminal? LG has introduced this model as a result of its Explorer Project, which seeks to offer "a completely different mobile experience to its users." This is the first model that the company has presented within this new category, in which it chooses to explore new possibilities in smartphones.
A 5G mobile phone with triple camera of 64 megapixels
The cross-shaped design is not the only advantage provided by the Mobile, which comes equipped with 5G and a Qualcomm Snapdrago 765g processor, one of the best in the American.
In addition, LG WING has a triple rear camera with the following configuration: a main lens of 64 megapixels, a wide angle of 13 and an ultra wide angle of 12. The front lens for selfies is 32 megapixels and has a 'pop-up' design —that is, it is not embedded in the screen, but springs from a hollow of the mobile—.
It has a battery of 4,000 mAh, weighs 260 grams and will be available in 2 colors. What has not determined the South Korean is the price of the terminal, which will go on sale in October in that country and, later, in North America and Europe.

6 measures that other countries have used to curb coronavirus and that Spain has not yet implemented
Although the situation of coronavirus in Spain seems to be more controlled than in March, these 6 months of experience have served to compare the different models and strategies with which other countries have dealt with the pandemic.
Recipes are never 100% exportable and governments, it is assumed, are the ones who know their community best to develop an effective response against the virus, but it is never superfluous to look back and assess the differences with other territories that, to a greater or lesser extent, have developed their own ways of combating the disease.
These are 6 measures and attitudes of governments around the world that Spain has not yet implemented, or partially implemented.
One of the highlights of Spain during the pandemic has been extreme restraint, as was the case of the alarma state, followed by a handshake with the passage of time. An example of this is that of Catalonia, where it went from announcing a perimeter confinement and recommending voluntary confinement to, overnight, replacing the restrictions with the limitation of the time of night leisure and the capacity of less than 10 people per meeting.
If the pandemic is growing, it is logical to think that the restrictions should accompany it progressively. Germany, for its part, has done the opposite than Catalonia: go from less to more, as has been seen in the implementation of the border tests. Later, as the contagion increased, the recommended tests became mandatory for passengers on the so-called blacklist and now, although the situation has subsided, Angela Merkel's government is shuffling the mandatory tests for all Germans coming from abroad.
On the other hand, there is also a certain consistency criterion when it comes to banning. In Germany, for example, the denials of COVID-19 have been approved by the courts, yes, but the same attendees were arrested precisely for violating the security measures against the virus. Spain, on the other hand, has allowed these massive meetings without consequences.
While our COVID Radar has collided with bureaucracy and jurisdictional disagreement between autonomous communities, the German Corona-Warn-App has been one of the biggest strengths of the national strategy against the pandemic. If the Spaniard will still have to wait to see the light, Robert Koch's was already operational on June 16.
Its biggest criticism is that it is not available for iPhone models prior to iOS 13.5 - for not having the latest Bluetooth technology - but from there are all praise. The application is free, occupies only 17.6 megabytes, guarantees anonymity and does not ask for any personal data, name, gender, age or address.
The only permission you ask to use is Bluetooth, which is used to measure the distance between 2 people —who have it installed and approved—. To do this, the phones exchange identifiers (IDs) generated randomly by an encryptor and store the data of these encounters for 15 days, the estimated time for an infection to manifest, and emit data of risk of contagion depending on who has crossed with the user.
The app also works in a decentralized way, so the data does not pass through a central server and is stored on each phone.
For all intents and purposes, tracking applications have proven to be one of the best tools to combat regrowth around the world, with examples as remarkable as that of South Korea, but in no way substitute for other security measures such as masks or social distancing. In any case, they complement them.
One of the main assets of Austria to become a European reference in the treatment of the pandemic has been the importance given to mass tests to monitor the development of the virus, yes, in the second phase of de-scaling. Since then, there has been no week in which the number of tests has not increased.
Despite the fact that the models in each country are hardly exportable, the fact is that the Austrians have done quite well with the distribution of contagion kits, while in Spain the authorities advised against their massive use from the very beginning. According to data from the Alpine Ministry of Health, to date Austria has carried out almost one and a half million preventive tests on the population.
The statistics show the majority of neighboring countries: it is the state that has produced the most test per 1,000 inhabitants.
According to Anna Fransson, director of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce, her country managed to save itself from collapse by not relying so much on tourism as an axis of the national economy. To this day and since the beginning of the pandemic, Sweden remains the country that has best endured the economic recession that came from the coronavirus.
Fransson believes that his country will be saved relatively easily because it does not depend so much on the income of the tourism sector; moreover, since Swedes spend a lot of money as tourists abroad, they now invest that money in shops within their borders. The share of Tourism in Sweden is only 3% compared to 12% in Spain. On the other hand, the promotion of national consumption and initiatives for citizens to spend in their surroundings have shielded the Swedish economy from the pandemic.
"My friends were going out to dinner to support the restaurants," says Fransson.
But examples can also be found in countries with a similar production model. Italy, for example, attempted to open up tourism and, seeing that the data did not accompany the risk, rushes to encourage it in the future and protect itself from the virus in the present. In Spain, on the other hand, the opening of borders has influenced the increase in Contagion and, in addition, night clubs have been opened, which are one of the main foci of the outbreaks of COVID-19.
Another case is that of New York (USA), which could be compared to Madrid in terms of infection rates, regrowth and the role they play as sources of contagion to their surroundings. According to Miguel Hernán, professor of Epidemiology at Harvard University, one of the key differences between the two would have been, precisely, the attitude of the different administrations when it comes to closing (or not) bars.
"Let's focus on indoor consumption [bars and restaurants], a vital economic activity in both New York and Madrid and one of the main sources of coronavirus transmission," notes Hernan. "In New York there will be no bars open until September 30 and the protocols are very strict [...], in Madrid were open at 60% since June", recalls the professor, highlighting how easy it was to "find crowded tables and bars".
