LG Introduces Next Style Icon

LG today announced the Shine, a new phone for Korea that the company hopes will capture the public's attention like the Chocolate before it. The Shine is a total departure from LG's previous designs. It is a slim slider wrapped in metal instead of plastic. The entire phone looks metallic as even the large QVGA screen is hidden behind a mirrored surface. To reduce size, LG has opted for scroll wheel navigation similar to older Japanese Sony Ericsson models rather than a D-pad or joystick. The phone features a 2 megapixel camera, 1 GB of built in memory, memory card slot and 3G data. If successful when it launches in Korea early next year, it is likely that as with the Chocolate, LG will launch the Shine on Western shores.

T-Mobile phones will soon display a new icon in the status bar to indicate when they are connected to 5G in a higher frequency band that offers faster data speeds. The icon will appear first on the newest iPhones, and the company is working with phone makers "to include this update on as many devices as possible".
Change the name
Neat phone though...
Hopefully the ethnic marketing consultants/telecom employee affinity groups are hip to this.
Get ready! Its LG's time to Shine.
I would get it. Go LG!
Dude this phone looks sick. 🤤 😈
I would get it. Go LG!
So would I...if it weren't a slider.
CHECK OUT THESE AWESOME PICS
LG still kinda blows
LIke it or not, LG is still total garbage
Motorola's got these guys schooled in the fashion phone realm. (The chocolate has too many afterthought design decisions, like the speaker location)
Finally Aphone That Isnt Plastic
LG continues to impress
Personally, my favorite LG that I owned was the LG7000 on Verizon. Even with the Verizon UI, I thought that this phone fit my needs flawlessly
probably 10-12 months from now would be a guess ;)
Features are a moot point because they can change before the phone gets here.
I think it will sell well, but I don't think it will be as impacting as other phones.
