LG is reportedly working on an as-yet-unnamed smartphone which will come with a second screen attachment. What that means is that you will be able to effectively snap on an additional screen on the phone. This sounds reminiscent of LG’s ill-fated “Friends” modules that allowed you to expand the functionalities of certain smartphones.

CNET hears from people familiar with the matter that this new smartphone will have an option for a second screen attachment. The attachment in question will be sort of a case that has a screen. So it would basically allow users to double the total screen size with a removable attachment.

We may not have to wait for too long to find out more about this device. LG is reportedly going to launch it at the Mobile World Congress 2019 in Barcelona next month. It’s said that LG is considering the G8 name for this device but it’s not a done deal for now.

The report also mentions that this won’t be the foldable smartphone from LG that Korean media has recently been reporting on. That’s likely going to be a separate device and it remains to be seen if it’s going to be unveiled at MWC 2019 as well next month.
