LG Gentle is company's latest announcement for South Korea and
it's quite a curious one. The Gentle is new take at a dying form factor - a
flip phone running on the latest Android 5.1 Lollipop.
LG Gentle has a 3.2" HVGA
touchscreen and runs on a quad-core 1.1GHz processor with 1GB of RAM. It
supports LTE networks, there is 4GB expandable storage, a 3MP main camera and a
1,700 mAh battery. The Gentle's exterior bets on a stylish faux leather, which
is gaining momentum these days.
LG will begin shipping the Gentle in
South Korea very soon and its off-contract price is going to be KRW 200,000 or
€150. Unfortunately we are pretty sure this will be a Korean exclusive, as it
was with the Samsung's
Galaxy Golden. While these phones are pretty cool
in a nostalgic way they have little market niche outside Korea or Japan.
