If you’re looking for a phone that’s different, then I think LG has the answer. The LG Wing has a design unlike any other device, with a screen that rotates to reveal a second, smaller display.

Richard Lai spent time with a pre-production unit and couldn’t resist fiddling with the screen: “Once I got the hang of it, it did feel like playing with a large fidget toy made for one’s right hand.” Before you flip through the highlights from Friday and the rest of last week further down in this roundup, check out his video to see it in action, and imagine what other off-the-wall phone designs you’d like to see one of these companies attempt.

Yep, it’s basically just what we were expecting.

Pixel 5

Plenty of details about the Pixel 5 had already leaked in advance, and we also got an idea of what it would include from the Pixel 4a, which arrived this summer. Yep, we got the same style screen, with a pinhole front-facing camera, and as expected, the Pixel 5 arrives with a 6-inch, 2340 x 1080 screen. There’s no XL model this year, just this single model.

Google is also bringing back the fingerprint sensor that went missing from last year’s Pixel 4. Gone is the face unlock feature that didn’t quite set the world on fire. Also missing this year are the odd touchless controls that were powered by an ultra-wideband radar sensor above the screen. The Pixel 5 has a dual camera on the back.
