Smart flip phones are odd ducks, an attempt to rekindle the nearly extinct form factor. They never get much attention but LG will be introducing a specimen soon – the LG Wine Smart.
Wine is a series of flip phones available in the US, Canada but also in South Korea and Japan. There's a dedicated website – lgwinesmart-event.com – for the new device and it's entirely in Korean, so chances of western availability are slim.
Everything else about the phone is unknown though, not even what OS it will be running. The teaser image shows a glowing button and the Korean text refers to a special button but with nothing on its function.
The dates suggest the LG Wine Smart will be introduced this week so we'll be on the lookout for more details.
Note that we've brightened the original image to make it easier to see.

Kan they please make more flip phones or bring it back and release some of the flip phones in RZA.
I'd prefer not to have a flip mechanism if I could. But either way, if it's got physical buttons, it's a winner.
Yeah, that would be great.
