LG’s new X Screen has dual displays and a panic button

LG X Screen

LG has finally brought the X Screen to India, about 5 months after the handset first hit the scene ahead of the MWC 2016. The handset is part of the brand’s X series of mid-range phones which offer one premium feature each.

The LG X Screen’s headline-grabbing feature is the fact that it carries a 1.76-inch secondary display on top of the main 4.93-inch 720p one. The second screen works just like what we’ve previously seen in the LG V10, letting users have convenient access to recently used apps, pick up calls, and play music.

LG has also decided to add an additional Indian flavor to the smaller screen thanks to the addition of an SOS mode keeping in line with the government’s directive for all handsets to carry a panic button. Users can trigger this system in emergency situations by pressing the power button 5 times in a row.
