LG recently introduced its second flip phone in Korea; the Ice Cream Smart Flip Smartphone. The phone is available in Korea only and it is not expected to launch globally. It features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor with 1GB RAM and 1.2 Ghz processor.
Screen resolution is not good 320×480 with 3.5 inch screen. LG Ice Cream Smart Flip phone has 8GB internal expandable storage. It also boasts decent 8 megapixel camera And VGA front facing camera. It comes with Android 4.4 KitKat and probably future updates.
This phone is purely for youngsters in Korea. It may only be sold unofficially outside Korea by third parties. Phone does give good features and design.
Once, Flip Phones were highly used by the people because of the design. Invention of touch screen smartphones has made the flip phones extinct. We rarely see any smartphone manufacturer working on a new flip phone.
Our editor Ahmad Wali commented, “I love flip phones because it gives you a very elegant look. I used to see flip phones were used in Holywood movies by secret service agents and I like the idea of cutting the call by closing the flip and attending the call by just opening the flip. I love to see innovation in flip phones, maybe someone introducing complete touch screen flip phones.”
