LG is rolling back the clock to 2004 with its new smartphone and taking a leaf out of Samsung's book at the same time. The oddly named Wine Smart is a flip phone just like the ones we all thought were cool a decade ago but are hardly in vogue in 2015. However, Samsung has continued building flip phones and it seems the Korean company's counterpart LG is also getting in on the act.We have seen various LG made flip phones in Asia, but the Wine Smart is the first that the company will be bringing to international markets in a long time. While the Wine Smart name was introduced last year, this new version is actually a rebranded LG Gentile, another flip phone that the company rolled out in Asia last month. In terms of specs, the Wine Smart is hardly high end and rocks a 3.2-inch display with HGVA 320 X 480 resolution, a quad-core 64-bit Qualcomm Snapdragon 210, 1GB of RAM, a measly 4GB of internal storage, thankfully a micro SD card slot, a VGA front camera, and an afterthought like 4MP primary lens. The device rocks Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. LG says that the new Wine Smart is landing later this month in UK, France, Spain, Italy, Poland, Kazakhstan, and Japan. Expect the price to be low, under $200 unlocked certainly.
