It has a triple rear camera setup where a 64 MP primary camera with OIS along with 12 MP Ultra Wide Big Pixel Gimbal mode camera and 13 MP wide-angle camera. The Gimbal mode camera turns the phone’s Second Screen into a convenient grip, which provided the stability needed to capture clearer shots and smooth video footage in horizontal mode with one hand.

According to the company, the hinge module with Hydraulic Damper reduces stress on the mechanism when the upper Screen is rotated and the thermoplastic polyoxymethylene is applied to the back of the Main Screen to facilitate smoother swiveling and to prevent scratches on the Second Screen, said LG. The hinge mechanism has been tested for 200,000 swivels.
LG has partnered with YouTube or Tubi on the preinstalled NAVER Whale browser where the video plays on the Main Screen while the Second Screen displays use for comments or the search bar. Multi App feature allows users to create shortcuts for pairs of apps they typically use together. Swivel Mode can also prove handy when driving, allowing users to follow map directions on the Main Screen reserved the Second Screen for calls. The second screen also doubles as a grip when the Main Screen is in landscape mode. With Grip Lock activated, the Second Screen displays useful information such as time and date and ignores accidental touches.
