Remember the opening scene from the original Iron Man, when Tony Stark’s convoy is ambushed and the eccentric billionaire whips out a phone that swivels open to call for help? The year was 2008, and that was an , one of the company’s earlier forays into phones that rotate to open, rather than flip.
We may be getting a sequel. LG on Wednesday unveiled a new mobile initiative called the Explorer Project that it says will launch devices that “deliver distinctive and yet unexplored usability experiences.” The company also released a promo video, embedded below, that appears to tease a new swiveling handset, with a promise of more to be revealed Sept. 14.
The announcement comes just days after tech site Android Authority published video of a phone it refers to as the LG Wing, which features a secondary screen that flips out with a “twisting” motion.
