Technology is advancing rapidly and year after year industrial producers are rediscovering themselves. First came the shoe size device and, little by little they reduced the size to fit the palm. Then the touch screen and smartphone appear. But that's not all. Some of the most important companies in this sector are working models with folding screens. This is not the case for LG, which has a different proposal.
South Korean brands intend to launch a cellphone that will have two screens. With this option, according to CNET, the screen size can be doubled. So, it will be one of the different devices that the South Korean brand can launch during Cellular World Congress, which will be held next month in Barcelona.

Although the name of this device is unknown, or its characteristics, it is not known how the screen will be duplicated. What is clear is that LG is fighting for it distinguish from direct competitors like Samsung, Huawei, OnePlus or Apple.
Their flagship smart phone, LG G7 ThinQ and LG V40 ThinQ, are decent devices that are often overlooked by more attractive alternatives. And it is not known whether the ship fell, G8, which will be presented during MWC 2019, allow to install a second screen on the device.
Samsung is designing a folding cellphone, and we have hope with the Samsung Galaxy S10, which will be presented on February 20 in San Francisco. Royole, meanwhile, is the first company to launch a device that allows folding screens, FlexPai. Other companies still face problems such as flexible screen usage and wear and software problems and user experience.
