LG Dual Screen:
The LG G8X has 2 detachable screens. The dual screens are actually the main revolution being introduced through this phone. The LG G8X is a 6.4 inches smartphone along with a similar sized 2nd OLED screen in the box. The screens get attached side by side and therefore unlike Galaxy Fold which provides smooth tablet display on dual screen, the LG G8X has a gap between two screens in expanded view. The additional screen is fixed in a cover, that is why it is named as Cover Display. Both the screens can be rotated about 180 degrees giving the user extreme freedom in the domain of display.
The screens allow the user to do more at once and multi-task like never before.

In addition to the main smartphone screen and the second display there is a 2.1 inches notification screen on the backside of the second screen that allows you to get notified about notifications when both the screens are attached and enclosed.
Case of the second screen:
The second screen has been wrapped through a case in order to provide a physical connection with the first smartphone display as the wireless connection between the displays would not have be sufficient for the experience that the company would have wanted to provide its users with when the gaming platform is considered. The case has a C Type USB Port in it, when the smartphone is put into the case, it gets connected to the first display via that cable that is a physical and stronger connection than any wireless connection like Bluetooth.

The LG G8X has a battery of 4000mAH that is consumed by both of the displays. The company claims that the second screen uses only 20% to 30% more battery than being consumed by the first display yet it means adding the second screen would drain the battery faster.
