As competition in the Smartphone world keeps getting tighter, manufacturers need to find ways to survive and stay ahead of competition. To survive in this market, you will expect manufacturers to embrace the new technologies and developments in the sector. This has and is true for most manufacturers but for LG, embracing the past is also part of their strategy to stay unique relevant.
The company yesterday unveiled the LG Wine smart, a new Smartphone that will take you back to the golden days when flip phones were very popular. Getting this Smartphone in 2014 will definitely make you stand out from everyone else. If that is a good or bad thing is up to you.
The LG Wine smart is an Android based flip phone mainly targeting those who are not fully efficient with full touch screen phones. This phone has a 3.5-inch HVGA (320×480) screen, 1.2GHz quad-core processor (very impressive), 1GB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage. These are not bad specs except for the screen. At the back sits an 8MP camera, yes 8, with a 1700mAh battery under the frame. The front camera is a disappointing one at only 0.3MP, you don’t want to imagine how bad your selfies will look with this camera.
A few other impressive features the LG Wine smart has include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, LTE and digital TV support. This shows that this is an old phone that keeps up with time. It will run on Android 4.4 KitKat and will be launched this Friday in South Korea.
