The Morning After: LG gets weird again with the dual-screen Wing

Chris Velazco said it: Weird LG is back. The repeatedly leaked LG Wing has been officially revealed, with a 3.9-inch second screen hidden behind its main one. This is by far the strangest dual-screen device so far, and I’m kinda into it.

Oh, and there might be some kind of slider device on the way? Let’s do this, LG.

Sony’s ‘budget’ A7C fits a full-frame sensor in a new compact body

Built for your new YouTube channel.

A7C

Sony’s latest full-frame mirrorless camera, the A7C, has an all-new compact body with an electronic viewfinder in the corner, making it look more like the APS-C sensor A6600 than any other A7-series camera to date.

A new Apple Watch and iPad Air are practically a given.

iOS 14

It’s all happening later today, but here’s a teaser of what we’re expecting to see from Apple, at a safe remote distance. It’s not a new iPhone affair — expect that next month — but new iPads and Apple Watches. We’ll probably see the Series 6 appear, but I’m more interested in seeing if Apple replaces the Series 3 with a newer, reasonably priced wearable. You’ll be able to follow the news as it unfolds starting at 10AM PT/1PM ET on Apple’s website and on YouTube.

Google invite September 30th

The events don’t stop. Google’s incoming Pixel showcase will take place virtually, with the taglines of “Launch Night In” and “Your couch is the best seat in the house.”

To be honest, we know a lot (if not everything) Google will reveal: 5G Pixel phones, including the Pixel 5, a new smart speaker —  heavily leaked — and another, newer, Chromecast.
