LG delivers Android-powered flip phone in Wine Smart

[df-subtitle]Running Android 5.1 Lollipop, the phone will find a home overseas[/df-subtitle]

LG on Wednesday announced the Wine Smart, an Android-powered flip phone headed for international markets. Running the latest version of Android, the clamshell device offers a 3.2-inch display at 480 x 320 pixels.

Under the hood we find a 1.1GHz quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, and 4GB of storage with support for microSD expansion. Like other smartphones, the Wine Smart comes with a pair of cameras: 3-megapixel rear, front facing VGA. Rounding out the hardware are Bluetooth, WiFi, LTE support, and a 1700mAh battery.

If the name “Wine Smart” sounds familiar it’s likely because LG used the moniker last September when it launched another clamshell Android. Nevertheless, the new one builds on the predecessor just a smidge.

The LG Wine Smart will be offered in France, Italy, Poland, Spain, Kazakhstan, and Japan, and other countries later this month. It is not clear if LG has intentions to bring the phone to the US; we’re not betting on it.
