You don’t have to be born in the early 80s, like some of our team members, to feel a certain nostalgia to the flip phone form factor. We have spent quite some time lamenting about the Android flip phone and its comeback, and yes, we were super excited when we got the chance to spend some time with LG’s Android flip phone offerings, the Wine Smart and Ice Cream Smart at MWC 2015 earlier this year.

LG seems dedicated to the cause and has announced yet another Android flip phone. The LG Gentle brings a 3.2-inch LCD display with (an ancient) resolution of 480 × 320 pixels, 1.1GHz quad-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of expandable storage, three-megapixel main camera, VGA front-facer, 1,700mAh removable battery, and Android 5.1 Lollipop on-board.

The LG Gentle will cost ₩200,000 (roughly $170), and chances are you won’t be able to grab one, unless you live in (or import from) one of the select few markets that will see this device.
