Not every manufacturer decides to release smartphones in a format that is not traditional for this device. However, the South Korean company LG is not one of those. Her new LG Gentle is a smartphone made in a somewhat obsolete and rarely used in our time clamshell form factor.
The main consumer audience for which the device is designed are hipsters and people of advanced age. The device is positioned as a budget model, so the hardware characteristics are not the most outstanding. LG Gentle is equipped with a 3.2-inch touch screen with a resolution of 480×320 pixels and a density of 180 ppi, a quad-core Snapdragon 210 processor with a clock frequency of 1.1 GHz and an Adreno 304 graphics accelerator, 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of permanent memory, a slot for microSD memory cards, 3-megapixel main and 0.3-megapixel front cameras, Wi-Fi 802.11 b / g / n, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS and a battery capacity of 1700 mAh.
What is noteworthy, this model supports 4G LTE networks, and the modern Android 5.1 Lollipop is used as the operating system. The clamshell is made of high quality plastic with imitation genuine leather. Product dimensions: 117.7 × 58.7 × 16.6 mm, weight: 143 gr. The cost of new items in the home market is $ 171. Whether LG Gentle is available outside of South Korea is still unknown.
