LG published a video on Monday, for an upcoming announcement for IFA 2019, the annual technology convention in Berlin, which hints that it may debut a phone with three screens.
LG demonstrated how that additional display could be used to extend one app across two screens or run two separate apps.
It looks very similar to the Dual Screen case LG introduced for its V50 ThinQ phone, which as its name implies adds a second screen to the device. In its video introducing the Dual Screen case for the V50.

What the device almost certainly won’t be is a foldable, which is a product category that LG has steered away from despite preparing to launch its rollable OLED TV this year. Instead of a folding screen.
Both the V50 ThinQ’s accessory and this new unannounced device appear to feature two separate screens which are attached by a hinge, and which do not bend like the displays on the Samsung Galaxy Fold or Huawei Mate X.
It is worth noting that some traditional controls are clearly absent though, like a USB Type-C port, likely hinting at a wireless-only charging scheme. There also appears to be no selfie camera and no visible fingerprint reader.
