New LG flip-phone packs Android Lollipop

LG is working on a “super premium phone” for later this year but, in the meantime, the company has something else to share. The South Korean giant just revealed its latest Android-powered flip phone, called the LG Gentle, and it looks kind of awesome.

The LG Gentle runs Android 5.1 Lollipop along with the company’s own software, designed to take advantage of the phone’s unique form factor. It also features a physical keyboard with a dedicated camera button, along with Back, Home and Recent buttons. There’s even a special Q key you can set to launch a specific frequently used app.

Diving into the specs, LG’s new phone features a 3.2-inch 480 x 320-pixel LCD screen, a 1.1GHz quad-core processor, a 3-megapixel rear camera, a front-facing VGA shooter, 1GB of RAM and 4GB of expandable storage. It’s 16.6 mm thick, weighs 143 grams and comes in navy blue or burgundy.

The LG Gentle probably won’t be available in America. The company’s smart flip phones are typically limited to South Korea where they’re mostly meant for elderly customers. The device is set to cost 200,000 won (roughly $170).
