Multitasking has long been accepted as a computing and social norm, especially when you have several browser tabs open at the same time or working with multiple applications. It’s helpful to have a two-monitor setup, but what if this were to be done on a smartphone? NAVER’s latest Whale browser has enabled yet another breakthrough with LG’s innovative WING smartphone, powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G platform, for users to work on two different screens seamlessly. Qualcomm Technologies has made this great collaboration possible based on a strong relationship with both companies.

This, in a nutshell, means that users can use different applications at once, such as browsing two different pages simultaneously, just like you would in a two-monitor set up. Users can also stream a video from YouTube in full screen while the second screen displays comments. Not only that, with 5G users can now leverage this experience to its fullest with extreme low latency.

NAVER Whale has always been looking to provide differentiated browsing experiences, and LG WING’s new form factor with swivel screen has been a perfect opportunity to bring them to life. Through this amazing collaboration bridged by Qualcomm Technologies, a whole new UX has been created. We are thrilled to see users getting benefit of the true multitasking experience on NAVER Whale browser on LG WING.Hyo Kim, product owner of NAVER Whale
LG Mobile’s ‘Explorer Project’ aims to discover unexplored usability and break new ground in the mobile industry with its Platform Partners like Qualcomm Technologies and NAVER. LG WING, powered by Snapdragon 765G, is the first device of this project and the collaboration with NAVER Whale has realized this aim to provide the new usability by bringing the next-level multitasking experience to users.David YOON, vice president of product strategy at LG’s Mobile Communications Company

But how is this possible you might ask?
A one-of-a-kind feature is possible due to the latest NAVER Whale mobile browser technology, that allows users to take advantage of multi-screens at its maximum while in their browser. This, combined with Snapdragon 765G mobile platform’s blazing fast 5G, makes this unique multitasking more unique. When viewing YouTube or NAVER Sports on the preinstalled NAVER Whale browser over 5G networks, the video plays on the Main Screen while the Second Screen displays comments or the search bar seamlessly with a best-in-class 5G connectivity.
