LG today debuted the Wine Smart, a flip phone that runs Android 5.1 Lollipop. The device was first revealed for the Korean market several weeks ago as the Gentle. The Wine Smart is the international version of the phone. LG says it was designed to appeal to people who prefer the functionality of older handsets with physical keys. It includes LG's Safety Care feature, which can be used to transmit emergency alerts and location to pre-selected contacts when needed. The Wine Smart is a slim clamshell that boasts a 3.2-inch 480 by 320-pixel touchscreen, 1.1GHz quad-core processor with 1 GB of RAM, 4 GB of storage, and support for microSD cards. The phone has a 3-megapixel main camera and a VGA user-facing camera. It includes Bluetooth, WiFi, and LTE radios, and has a 1,700mAh removable battery. The LG Wine Smart is headed to France, Italy, Poland, Spain, Kazakhstan, and Japan, and other countries later this month. LG has not said if the phone will be sold in the U.S.

Some pretty impressive specs crammed into that little thing.
