LG Electronics and NAVER, South Korea’s largest search engine provider, developed Whale, a browser optimized for use on LG Dual Screen.
Whale, based on Google’s open-source Chromium browser, supports what NAVER calls omnitasking, the ability to carry out several tasks simultaneously on one screen. Whale supports split screen mode with adjustable divider to enable browsing two sites in the same tab. Paired with LG Dual Screen, Whale offers users the ability to move between two browsing screens quickly. Those who enjoy online shopping will be able to select from a site’s main category menus on one screen while reading product descriptions on the other. Bilingual users can search and read their favorite news sites in two different languages simultaneously with Whale.
LG has been looking at new and creative ways consumers can maximize the usefulness of its Dual Screen technology first introduced with the LG V50ThinQ 5G. Plans for more devices that support LG Dual Screen are on the horizon, starting with IFA Berlin, where LG will unveil its newest phones that support the LG Dual Screen and come with NAVER Whale preinstalled.
