Quite unusual at it may seem, LG's new smartphone launched for the native South Korean market has animated eyes. It's called - the AKA and the device was first spoken about last month. However, still, the design does come as a surprise.
The device is, obviously, aimed to cater to the young customers in South Korea, and comes with four unique cases that transform it into different character. These characters according to the promo video are Eggy (yellow case), Wookie (white case), Soul (blue case) and YoYo (pink case).
The cases have two parts, with the front one partially covering the display, allowing the four characters to literally show their animated eyes. The eyes are more than simple animations, as they can provide info including notifications and battery status.
If you are wondering about the specs, the LG AKA sports a 5-inch IPS display offering a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels. It is powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor (unknown maker) coupled with 1.5 GB of RAM. It runs on Android KitKat. In the camera segment, the phone uses an 8 MP rear camera with laser auto focus and a 2 MP front-facing snapper.
The smartphone that supports LTE and NFC connectivity houses 16 GB of expandable memory and is powered by 2610 mAh battery. It weighs 135.5 grams without the front cover, and 157 grams with it on.
However, the new offering from LG doesn't look like it will be launched in other markets. This will most probably be confined to the South Korean market.
