    LG Wine Smart Flip Phone Tipped to Launch Soon [REPORT]

    It is reported that LG will be hosting a Wine Smart giveaway in South Korea, while at the same time showing a mysterious picture of the handset. Going by the teased image, the forthcoming phone has a clamshell design and a physical keypad. No more details are available in respect of design and form factor.

    According to reports, LG Wine Smart could be a successor to the original LG-made wine phone series launched, back in 2007. It is suspected that this very mysterious phone would be the first smartphone among wine phone series.

    Samsung - LG's arch rival already launched a couple of clamshell smartphones in select Asian markets, including India. The first such flip phone, Samsung Galaxy Flip, went on sale last year with much fanfare.

    There are many people who still use old school flip phones. That's the only reason why handset makers like Samsung and LG are interested in offering such handsets. Stay tuned to GizBot for more updates!
